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

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.
Teaming up with DJ Nifty this second LP combines outer space beats with tales of the city and lyrical chicanery
