‘The Message’ deemed greatest hip hop song ever

The 1982 hit ‘The Message’ by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five was named the greatest hip hop song of all time on Wednesday, in the first such list by Rolling Stone magazine to celebrate the young but influential music genre. ‘The Message,’ which tops a list of 50 influential hip hop songs, was the first track ‘to tell, with hip hop’s rhythmic and vocal force, the truth about modern inner-city life in America,’ Rolling Stone said.
