NYC Song Of The Week “The Message” – Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five

November 6, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This song, this video is So NYC it’s not even funny. We’re the birthplace of rap/hip hop and this is what it looked like back then. Gritty, ain’t it? It’s real life, it’s my hood, it’s history, it’s rap before rap was rap and I love it. I can count on my hands the number rap songs that dealt with such deep social issues after 1990 in the way that this one does.

And you gotta love the attire, (leather hats better not come back in style) they looked like the Uptown Village People, but that was just the times back then.
