Grandmaster Flash Delivers Latest ‘Message’ in Adventurous Memoir

“This whole book was scary for me,” Grandmaster Flash admits when discussing his new tell-all book in a recent interview. “We as human beings, we don’t willingly display our skeletons, our pains, our hurts — not the deep, deep, deep ones.”

The hip-hop pioneer, who brought hip-hop to the masses in the late ’70s and early ’80s with the early hit ‘Superrappin” and the platinum selling album ‘The Message,’ exposes himself in his new book ‘The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash: My Life, My Beats,’ co-written with David Ritz.

Flash, whose real name is Joseph Saddler, talks about his ingression into the world of DJing, developing the technique of cutting and unfortunate cocaine addiction in the memoir. Despite a huge metamorphosis in the world of hip-hop, Flash is unarguably a legend to DJs and emcees alike.
The DJ currently hosts a weekly mix show on Sirius Satellite Radio and is working on his upcoming album, ‘The Bridge.’
