Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The Message (Official Video)
Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The Message. A lot of so-called scholars/pundits associate the origins of hip hop with promoting materialism, violence, etc. Creators know that hip hop is a movement created to transform material conditions while developing new forms of effective conflict resolution. Only when corporate pirates came to town did the *message of hiphop change. The element of rap may be exploited-dead but hip hop (like jazz) will never end~~it evolves and it goes on...FOREVER.
