Flash and his furious5 take you back to the old skool.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Back To The Old School - Adventures On The Wheels Of Steel [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Back in the day, 1981, hip hop burst onto the scene and provided a whole new window for young black people to express themselves and get up out of the ghetto. Flash is argubly the man who started Hip-Hop when at the age of 12 he soldered his first set of decks together and started to mix and scratch records. Take this and add five young enthusiastic black guys and you have a lethal combination bound to create something fresh and special. The album is a tribute to everything black in the 80s and the songs prove this with a concoction of party, hard-hitting, and tell-it-like-it-is tracks. You can't but enjoy the way Flash drops 1 vicious tune after another whilst the boys rap about everything from what its really like in the ghetto to how pretty they are. Everything thats Hip-Hop has spawned from these very tracks, so get up and pay attention - its history your listening to.
