The Grandmaster Flash (@DJFlash4eva) Collection – Track By Track

Have you ever wondered why DJ’s pick cer­tain songs to play? What story they cre­ate in their minds or how a cer­tain song makes them feel when they play a song?

One of the biggest and greatest hip-hop DJ’s Grand­mas­ter flash has recently released a com­pil­a­tion album and has given a track by track review of why he plays cer­tain songs. The album fea­tures songs from legends such as Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, the Sug­ar Hill Gang, Eric B and Rakim and a host of  more clas­sic hip-hop tracks from some of the greats.

Grand­mas­ter Flash does a track by track selec­tion on Afrika Bam­baataa – Plan­et Rock, Nas – The World Is Yours, Rob Base & DJ ez Rock – It Takes Two, Eminem – Lose Your­self, A Tribe Called Quest – Can I Kick It.

Flash is the third legendary DJ selec­ted for the new com­pil­a­tion ‘Col­lec­tion’ album range. It’s inter­est­ing to see what makes Flash tic as a DJ when it comes to select­ing music to play. For many of us it seems like a sim­ple task, but from this short video you can tell that he does delve deep into his thoughts when listen­ing to a hip-hop track. His thoughts on Nas’ “The World Is Yours” is evid­ent that he is more than a DJ but a music con­nois­seur. By talk­ing about the sample being influ­ence by Jazz, yet being able to stand on it’s own on a hip-hop dance floor is an incred­ible insight to how DJ’s view the tracks they pick.

For many DJ’s Grand­mas­ter Flash is someone to greatly learn from because of his know­ledge and out­look on hip-hop as a cul­ture.
