Picking up where we left off with the last post, here's another Rap Attack "Rapping with the Stars" segment, this time from about 2 years later with Grandmaster Flash. The interview sees he and Magic talking about Grandmaster Flash (the group's) new record, Ba-Dop-Boom-Bang, with Flash explaining their change in musical direction as a result of working with a new producer, Larry Smith.

Although he is inquiring about the new album, you can tell Magic is hoping the original lineup of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five will get back together. He in fact puts Flash on the spot when he straight up asks if they will, leading to a fun, albeit awkward interview. When all was said and done, I believe this would be Flash's last album before reuniting with the original Furious Five to release their On The Strength record.

I'm a fan of U Know What Time It Is, the track they're premiering during this interview. I especially like the Extended version Flash did for the single release.

The album itself has some uh... tough moments.

I was also going to post the music video with all the the crazy cartoon stuff going on, but it looks like Elektra is policing youtube quite well these days. Damn. I did find this though, from The Source.

I have to apologize if this post is written terribly. I'm sick as a dog and a little out of it.
