Get an alert when new The Furious Five dates are announced
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five formed in the South Bronx of New York City in 1978 and comprised five rappers Mele Mel, The Kidd Creole, Keith Cowboy, Scorpio, and Rahiem, together with one DJ, Grandmaster Flash. The group's use of turntablism, break-beat deejaying, choreographed stage routines and lyricism was a significant force in the early development of Hip Hop music.
Whilst rapping a scat routine at a party for a friend who had just joined the US Army, Cowboy began scat singing the words "hip/hop/hip/hop" in a way that mimicked the rhythmic cadence of the marching drill. He then worked the "hip hop" cadence into part of his performance. This evolved into the term 'Hip Hop', which was later adopted by the industry.
