Grandmaster’s Furious Five: Melle Mel & Scorpio

  • How you know them: as members of legendary hip-hop group Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
  • That group’s claims to fame: coining the term “hip-hop;” pioneering innovative turntable and sampling techniques that are now employed by DJs across the world; being the first hip-hop group inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; changing the face of rap with “The Message”
  • Who was prominently featured on that hip-hop anthem: Melle Mel, whose socially conscious lyrics paved the way for countless hip-hop artists to speak against injustice
  • Another Melle Mel first: he was the first rapper to call himself an MC, and the first rapper to win a Grammy award for Record of the Year thanks to his work on Chaka Khan’s “I Feel for You”
  • Alongside Scorpio: Melle Mel formed Grandmaster Melle Mel and the Furious Five after Flash left the group
  • Their next step: releasing the anti-drug megahit “White Lines (Don’t Don’t Do It),” with a video starring Lawrence Fishburne and directed by a young film student named Spike Lee
  • The subsequent string of hits: “King of the Streets,” “Jesse,” and “Pump Me Up”
  • Where else you’ve heard them: on albums such as 1985’s Stepping Off and 1997’s Right Now, and performing a tribute to “The Message” at the 54th Grammy Awards alongside Common, LL Cool J, and Lupe Fiasco
