Item Description
In the whole history of hip-hop music, few groups can
claim to have been as influential and important as
Joseph Saddler's group Grandmaster Flash & The
Furious Five. Many of the genre's signature elements
and trademarks can be traced back to the supergroup
founded by the Grandmaster; their discography was
among the first to feature recordings of scratching
and turntablism, their's was the first to feature songs
with political and social commentary, they were the
first to refer to rappers as "MC's", some might even
say they were the group that first coined the term
"hip-hop."
Though Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five was
considered the number one hip-hop group on their
home turf of New York City, they only maintained a
following on a local level, performing and releasing
singles exclusively on the East Coast. It wasn't until
the release of Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight"
that the group realized they could break into the
mainstream. After signing with Sugar Hill Records,
the group released their debut album The Message in
1982.
Bolstered by Flash's deft turntablism, rappers Melle
Mel, Kidd Creole, and Keef Cowboy's vocals, and
production which sampled everything from Chic to
the Tom Tom Club to The Jimmy Castor Bunch, The
Message was a revelation of sorts. More than simply
being a Billboard hit for the group, the album helped
cement hip-hop's credibility with mainstream
audiences, and is considered a major achievement in
hip-hop history. The album's title track was especially
praised, and is considered one of the greatest rap
tracks in music history.
