Grammy Hall of Fame Inducts First-Ever Hip-Hop Record

First it was called garbage music, something that should be tossed out and would never last. However, even the United States government uses it to bring about peace and unity within the world.

The Grammy Hall of Fame Award will be granted to hip-hop pioneers Grandmaster Flash & The Furious for their 1982 hit, “The Message,” at next year’s Grammy Awards. Imagine the backlack this record received back in 1982. Yet now, it’s considered an all time CLASSIC. This song could have received a GRAMMY when it first came out.

The 54 Grammy Awards is slated to take place February 12th, 2012.
