Yeah, it’s a little early to announce, but ya gotta love Grandmaster Flash’s, “The Message!”

Can’t wait!

Grandmaster Flash will perform "The Message" with Common, Lupe Fiasco and LL Cool J at The Grammys 2012 Award Nomination Ceremony.

The Grammy Awards are slated for February 12th, 2012, but the fine folks at the Grammy Foundation are already doing their part to get the hype rolling. (If you’re one of those people that thinks October is way too early for Christmas ads and decorations, you might want to skip this one.)

Common, Lupe Fiasco, Rick Ross and LL Cool J will join Grandmaster Flash – known as Godfather of Hip Hop for his influence on the genre’s roots – for a special live performance of “The Message” at the Grammy Nomination Concert on November 30. The iconic track established hip hop as a valuable platform to raise awareness of the poverty, violence and drug problems present in inner-city ghettos.

For its impact on the genre, “The Message” will see induction into the Grammy Hall of Fame, plus this special cross-generational performance on Wednesday night’s Grammy Nomination ceremony.
