Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five

Profile:
Influential American hip hop group consisting of Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, formed in the South Bronx of New York City in 1978. Composed of one DJ (the Grandmaster) and five rappers (Melle Mel, his brother the Kid Creole, Cowboy, Mr. Ness aka Scorpio, and Rahiem), the group's use of turntablism, break-beat deejaying, choreographed stage routines and lyricism was a significant force in the early development of hip-hop music. The group rose to fame in the early 1980s with their first successful single "Freedom" and later on with their magnum opus "The Message", which is often cited as among the most influential hip hop songs. However, in 1983, relations between Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel became strained and the group disbanded. A reunion was organized in 1987, and it released a new album. Afterward, the sextet disbanded permanently. Overall, the group was active for five years and released two studio albums. In 2007, it became the first hip hop group ever to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
