For all the heads who think it all started with Def Jam, you've got a lot of listening to do. THE DEFINITIVE GROOVE COLLECTION offers listeners a lecture in hip-hop history, representing the best of the legendary Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five's recordings from 1980 to 1987. One would be hard pressed to find lyrical expressions that more genuinely evoke the gritty reality of 1980s New York than the street poetry of "New York, New York" and "The Message." What's perhaps most impressive about this collection is that it demonstrates hip-hop's amazing ability to regenerate itself. The classic original tracks included here have spawned countless classic reworkings over the years, and the array of reworked samples, loops, hooks, and lyrics that have been pulled from these tracks will be instantly recognizable to rap fans who've never dug too deep into Flash and his crew.
