Grandmaster Flash

Grandmaster Flash, one of hip-hop's founding fathers and the creator of the Quick Mix, was the first person to change the arrangements of songs by using duplicate copies of records and manually editing/repeating the climatic part (later called the "break") by rubbing the record back and forth. This became known as "cutting", which was later called "scratching". His deejaying style caught fire in The Bronx (and the world) and helped to propel DJs such as Funkmaster Flex, Grand Wizard Theodore, Kid Capri, DJ Scribble, Jazzy Jeff, Jam Master Jay, Q Bert, the Scratch Pickles, Cash Money, and many others, to stardom.

His hits include "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel,” “White Lines,” “New York New York,” “The Message,” "Survival (The Message 2)"
