Flowback Fridays: The Message

June 22, 2012

I figured I would bring ya’ll some good old school hip-hop social/political commentary. You’ve already seen “Self-Destruction” and “We’re All in the Same Gang.” You can’ t talk about social/political commentary in hip-hop without mentioning “The Message” by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. This is the song that showcased hip-hop’s ability to be a voice of the people, and express the stresses of and tensions of urban black communities.
