GMF developed three DJing techniques that are now essentials of the trade - backspin, punch phrasing and scratching (which he perfected rather than created). His biggest hit, meanwhile, was The Message, one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry in 2002. What we'd pay to see Rick Santorum going crazy to that.
The big man also has a clothing line, G.Phyre, and he's signed a book deal to publish his memoirs which will be a whole lot more interesting than all those footballers who think they merit a biography at the age of 21. He also hosts a show on Sirius Satellite Radio and was recently presented with the BET 'I Am Hip Hop' Icon award so you're in for a treat. You can buy your tickets today on HK Ticketing, but your baseball cap might be slightly harder to come by in this city.
Flash, bang, wallop.
