Image: 1616396 Before the release of their self-titled debut, the
six-man collective of Crash Crew had already
released several singles around New York City.
Stories go that one of their first, "High Powered
Rap" would later be copied by Sugar Hill
Records' own Grandmaster Flash & The
Furious Five and form the basis for their first
national hit "Freedom", almost certainly leading
to animus between the two groups. Regardless,
Crash Crew also ended up on Sugar Hill
Records, and released their full-length debut
through the label in 1984. Crash Crew, along
with Treacherous Three, T La Rock, and the
aforementioned Grandmaster Flash & The
Furious Five, would become vanguards of the
first true generation of early hip-hop music, with
Crash Crew in particular being exceptionally
good at party anthem raps. Their debut
meanwhile would find new life as a crate
digger's dream, and prime sample material for
De La Soul, Jurassic 5, Black Eyed Peas,
and Cut Chemist.
