Bronx rapper Slick Rick became a freshly sworn-in U.S. citizen Friday, marking the end of his decades-long battle against deportation.

The English-born “La-Di-Da-Di” performer — who rose to fame with collaborator Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew — fought hard for the milestone.

Immigrations officials tried to kick him out of the country several times after he pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder in 1991 and spent five years in prison.
