Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s classic single “The Message” will be the first Hip-Hop recording to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
“The Message” is one of 25 records selected by the Recording Academy’s strict governing body, which reviewed each record for its cultural impact and historical significance.
Additionally, to even be considered, the record in question must be at least 25 years old.
“The Recording Academy is dedicated to celebrating a wide variety of great music and sound through the decades,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “We are especially honored to welcome this year’s selection of some of the most influential recordings of the last century. Marked by both cultural and historical significance, these works truly have influenced and inspired audiences for generations, and we are thrilled to induct them into our growing catalog of outstanding recordings.”
The Message was also the title of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s debut release for Sugarhill Records.
Upon its release the group consisted of Grandmaster Melle Mel, Scorpio, Kid Creole, Cowboy, Rahiem and Grandmaster Flash.
In addition to Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s “The Message,” a number of other historical American recordings were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame as well.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech, Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes,” the Rolling Stones’ album Exile On Main St and recordings by Mahalia Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Bill Cosby, Leroy Carr and Gene Autrey were also inducted.
