Grandmaster Flash: The Bridge
The great thing about hip-hop being a young genre is that the greats are still alive, and in some cases, still dropping records. Grandmaster Flash, the man behind The Message, brings us a his latest offering, The Bridge. Budding with artists that he influenced (and some who stood alongside him in the hey day of hip-hop), Q-Tip, Busta, Snoop Dogg, and freestlye master Supernatural all contribute verses, as well as old school pioneer KRS 1. Thankfully, Flash himself hasn’t succumbed to the slapdash, easy-make sound that popular hip-hop continuously descends into.
