“Children’s Story” is a single by London-born American rap artist Slick Rick, from his album The Great Adventures of Slick Rick. It is a tragic tale that can be interpreted as an implicit condemnation of violence and greed. It samples “Think (About It)” by Lyn Collins and “Nautilus” by Bob James. It features a single, almost four-minute-long verse without instrumental breaks or a refrain. A testament to the influence of Slick Rick, his lyrics have since been sampled and reincorporated in countless hip hop songs. This song ranked #44 on About.com’s Top 100 Rap Songs.
