    @Anubis, from what I know and just read up on....
    Grandmaster Flash together with Melle Mel, Cowboy and Kid Creole, were Grandmaster Flash and the 3 MCs. later Scorpio and Rahiem joined and they became Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.
    Superrappin' and Freedom were released.

    The Message only features Melle Mel and a Sugar Hill studio musician Duke Bootee, whose verse was lip-synched by Rahiem in the video clip, and Melle Mel apparently received all the royalties which caused all the problems.

    Grandmaster Flash, Kid Creole, and Rahiem left and became simply Grandmaster Flash.

    Melle Mel effectively took over the group, keeping he original name (which is when White Lines was released), but eventually changed to Grandmaster Melle Mel, and then back to just Melle Mel

    So technically even The Message shouldn't be credited to Grandmaster Flash, but that would just be ridiculous!

    @MrBlondNYC I remember asking somewhere if Grandmaster Flash shouldn't be credited on the original White Lines... you said no, something to do with using the name just for promotional value? However, I can't find any release on Discogs where they aren't both credited (there's 2 single releases where Discogs changes the "Grandmaster & Melle Mel" to just "Grandmaster Melle Mel", what's the "&" for?) + this song seems to have been released in 1983 on The Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five album.. Can you review this, I can only try to understand what I see on Discogs, have no knowledge of these artists. Thanks man
