Style Icons: Male »Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five

Grandmaster FlashThese guys make my style list for those amazing costume outfits, although I know they have also paved the way for other elements of style especially in music. But to be honest, the impact of rap music was most dramatic on me years and years ago when I took a breakdancing class for example (yes, that is completely true and, yes, I was completely inept – my major move during the “final” dance circle was kind of making my arm look like it was waving), Grandmaster Flash also led the way for myself and my “bad” friend Holly to sit up listening with awe and fascination the dirty ditties of Eazy-E in sixth grade (“Once Bitten Twice Shy” was my other vice at the time).

Since those days I've become out of touch with this new “hip hop” culture that the kids are raving about.
