Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five represented the first of what may someday be many hip-hop artists. Flash's turntable scratching techniques and the memorable refrain of "The Message" — "don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge" — were recalled. Hunched over a podium, present-day rapper Jay-Z read his induction speech off a PDA. "Thirty years later rappers have become rock stars, movie stars, leaders, educators, philanthropists, even CEOs," he said. "None of this would have been possible without the work of these men."
