Anyone alive when β€œthe message” from grandmaster Flash and the furious five dropped, what was your reaction?

β€œThe message” is the most important song in hip hop history, and i’d even say one of the best songs of all time in any genre. It’s been often imitated but never duplicated. I first heard it back around 2003 on a burned cd. I’ve always wondered what the reaction was back in the 80’s when it dropped, the lyrics really paint a vivid picture and I feel like that art was almost lost in the genre going forward, but there are a few that kept it alive

Chic and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five are plotting to destroy the world, and so former arch-enemies the Village People and the Beastie Boys put aside their differences to stop them

The slaughter is brutal and extremely exciting to watch, but finally, it ends in a showdown: Nile Rogers and Grandmaster Flash, laughing as they square up to the last surviving Beastie Boy and the last surviving Village Person.

He straightens his hard hat, draws his sword and charges at Nile Rogers. But his former ally sees a chance for revenge, remembering the time he wept over his father's body, mercilessly cut down by the naval officer and traffic cop, and the troubled MC knows what he must do.

Swinging his battle-axe, he plants the blade squarely between the construction worker's shoulder blades as Nile Rogers and Grandmaster Flash look on astounded. With his dying breath, realising the betrayal, the last of the Village People turns round and cries:

WHY, M.C.A.?

Why are earlier rappers (Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Flash, Kurtis Blow etc) not talked about or celebrated as much compared to seminal rock or metal acts such as black sabbath, led zepplin etc?

I've had a weird fascination with old school hip hop lately because it's just not talked about that much outside the circle of hip hop fans who would know about that stuff. Why do you guys think this is? These artists are extremely important, i mean the Kool Moe Dee vs Busy Bee Starski battle tape essentially gave birth to lyrical rap but I had no idea it existed for the longest time, meanwhile every rock/punk/metal fan knows the likes of Sabbath, the Ramones, Little Richard etc.

Upbeat or Chill hip-hop like 90’s/2000 west coast tunes like Ice Cube, Warren G, Dre, Wu Tang or even 80’s funky rap like Rappers Delight or Grandmaster Flash (The message)

Just getting into Hip Hop actually, never listened a lot before. I’m realising I have almost 50 years to discover.

Really loving the funky and soul influences tracks, and loving the GFunk.

I really dig some good bass lines and melodies. Looking for tracks with nice production either it’s original prods or sample.

Some tracks I like :

Ice Cube - It was a Good day; You know how we do it;

Warren G - What’s love got to do with it; Keep on Hustlin’

Dr. Dre - Bitch Niggaz

Snoop Dog - Ain’t no Fun, Gz and Hustlas

Nas - Nas is like

Wu Tang Clan - CREAM

Nas must have loved the lyrics to Grandmaster Flash - The Message...Parts of Illmatic was as if he was responding to "The Message"

original lyrics and audio:

https://genius.com/Grandmaster-flash-and-the-furious-five-the-message-lyrics

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lFvSSyYUBw


The following are all the similarities

https://genius.com/1446057

> People pissing on the stairs, you know they just don’t care

Nas upgraded from stairs to elevators on "Represent"

https://genius.com/24189

> The type of nigga who be pissing in your elevator


https://genius.com/16887005

> Sometimes I think I'm going insane, I swear I might hijack a plane

Nas on NY State of Mind:

https://genius.com/2864

> Whenever frustrated, I'ma hijack Delta


https://genius.com/1446046

> My son said, "Daddy, I don't wanna go to school

> 'Cause the teacher's a jerk, he must think I'm a fool

https://genius.com/988851

> But then you wind up droppin' out of high school

Nas dropped out of school in the 9th grade and has plenty of rhymes against the school system but the best example is on "2nd Childhood":

https://genius.com/Nas-2nd-childhood-lyrics

> Junior high school dropout, teachers never cared

> They was paid just to show up and leave, no one succeeds


https://genius.com/1446046

> And all the kids smoke reefer, I think it'd be cheaper

Nas on "street dreams"

https://genius.com/19429590

> Cut out of class just to smoke blunts and drink noddy


https://genius.com/1446046

> If I just got a job, learned to be a street sweeper

Nas on "Hope":

https://genius.com/Nas-hope-acappella-version-lyrics

> I never had a summer job, sweeping leaves

> Socks to my knees, home-made shorts, cut off Lee's


https://genius.com/33576

> A child is born with no state of mind

> Blind to the ways of mankind

oh shit...what does that remind you of? Nas ALBUM COVER on Illmatic...Nas made "N.Y. State of Mind" and he was a child on the cover in front of his projects, which is basically a response to that last verse, where Nas IS that child but with a NY State of Mind


https://genius.com/166353

> God is smiling on you, but he's frowning too

> Because only God knows what you'll go through

Nas on "Doo Rags"

https://genius.com/Nas-doo-rags-lyrics

> The hardest thing is to forgive, but God does

> Even if you murdered or robbed, yeah it's wrong, but God loves


https://genius.com/1962882

> Thugs, pimps and pushers and the big money-makers

Nas on "street dreams" is more of a MC Lyte line but close enough
