Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The Message

Hip-Hop and You Don't stop. Single by Hip-Hop legend Grandmaster Flash and his crew the Furious Five.
"Broken glass everywhere
People pissin' on the stairs, you know they just don't care
I can't take the smell, can't take the noise
Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice
Rats in the front room, roaches in the back
Junkies in the alley with the baseball bat
I tried to get away but I couldn't get far".

It looks like he's describing my hood. Things haven't change much in 30 years.. Expect maybe for the clothes street kids are wearing, and the funny haircuts.But then again it's the 80's.
