  • (HIP HOP.) Barboza, Anthony

    Grandmaster Flash. 1984. New York, 1984

    This portrait captures Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five at the height of their fame. The pioneering group broke through to mainstream success with the 1982 single “The Message,” which made the top 100 pop charts. “’The Message’ was [the first record] to prove that rap could become the inner city’s voice, as well as its choice” (Rolling Stone). In 2007 Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five became the first hip hop group to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

    In 2012 Rolling Stone declared “The Message” (with the refrain “Don’t push me, ’cause I’m close to the edge, I’m tryin’ not to lose my head …”) the #1 hip hop song of all time.

  • Knox, David

    Mortar Dictator, in Front of Petersburg. St. Petersburg, Va., October 1864
