The Furious 5: Legendary Rap Pioneers at The Howard Theatre
The Furious 5 are widely considered to be one of the cornerstones of the hip-hop movement, exploding out of New York City 35 years ago and helping to pave the way for rap's current popularity. They were the first rap group to win a Grammy Award, first to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and first to utilize the now standard "call-and-response" technique. The group's biggest hit, "The Message," injected stark social commentary into the music, paving the way for "White Lines (Don't Do It)," "Beat Street" and other landmark singles. Don't miss Grandmaster Melle Mel, The Kidd Creole, Rahiem and Scorpio live on stage.

You need to arrive early!!!! We decided to go home after work - WRONG MOVE - go directly to the Howard to stake out a table. They have a menu that we couldn't try because we didn't have a table. I don't know if the food tastes great but it looked delicious! You can eat and drink while you wait for the show to begin.R&B Group Mint Condition info • Nov 13 2014 star this tip starred
