Grandmaster Flash's turntable backspin and scratching skills, plus his ability to create the freshest new beats, shaped the sound of early hip-hop. Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five released "The Message" in 1982 and it quickly influenced other rappers of the time, and even now, to create socially aware music.  The lyrics ring true today as much as they did in "82.
