Solocypher's Hip Hop Christmas Countdown 1979-2011 - Number 29 - Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5- The Message (1982)

The hip hop police should take a fresh listen to this...original music from the people with a message. Melle Mel's immortal line; broken glass, every where...still rings through my head when ever I see those tell tale shining fragments signalling urban decay even in the London streets of 2011...The Furious 5 deserve even more credit as apparently it was member Cowboy who actually coined the term 'Hip Hop' itself while scatting. Respect due.
