80s rock star notable for his song "Superfreak." Recently came into popularity due to an extremely popular and referencable episode of Chappelle's Show, in which he is portrayed by Dave Chappelle and repeatedly makes such statements as "I'm Rick James, bitch!"
1.A bad motherfucker that spent too much time snorting lines of crack.
2. A singer from the 80s that no high school age person knew about until Chapelle put him on his show. Now everyone thinks they're Rick James, but they really just need an ass-kicking
For awhile after Chapelle did a scit about him on Chapelle's Show, many people could be heard yelling "Im Rick James Bitch" across the school halls. Sadely the real Rick James died shortly there after. Also sadely, one of his most notable last comments was, "Cocain is a hell of a drug".
