: Actually, I saw a really antique video on MTV that had a black guy called Grand Flashmaster or Funkmaster or something like that. He was doing a rap song about New York City. It sounded so much like "Shattered" that I was wondering who influenced whom. His was a real rap song that was a serious minded protest. I don't know what year his video was. Would anyone on this board know when rap started?(His song wasn't as good as Shattered and I hate rap.)
I'm guessing it was The Message(circa about '83), though maybe not, cuz I don't think it really sounds like Shattered.
