Occasionally Music: Pardon Edition

New York Governor David Paterson has pardoned Slick Rick in an effort to stave off the threat of his deportation.  From the governor's statement explaining the pardon:
Mr. Walters, who is now 43 years old, has lived in the Bronx without incident since his release from prison in 1997. He is presently employed as a landlord and rap musician. Mr. Walters has a wife and two children, all of whom are American citizens. 
Slick Rick's current great adventures presumably involve plungers and key rings.
