What’s that you say? ‘I’m not up on the Furious 5’? Let’s have the bio from the site and LEARN!
“The Furious 5 are a legendary group. They are trendsetters and are partly responsible for the creation of the billon dollar a year rap record industry, and the subculture called Hip Hop.
The Furious 5 are to Hip Hop what the Rolling Stones are to rock. As members of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5, they have toured the world with the likes of U2, The Police, Clash, Prince & Duran Duran as well as many Hip Hop greats. Their recordings are amongst the most sampled in the history of recorded Hip Hop, and some of their works from before Hip Hop was recorded have been copied and mimicked.
It was these guys who made the name Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5 a household name on the strength of records like Freedom, The Message, White Lines, Superrappin, Beat Street ,New York , New York, Survival , Scorpio and Larry’s Dance Theme to name a few…”
