as i said over there, 1982's 'The Message' is rightly included as a seminal record in HH's origin. b/c in 1982 HH was still developing. it was still originating.
plus, as was pointed out over there, at those parties the DJs DID play records w/deeper meanings than let's get high and dance and fuck (like Last Poets records) alongside those party records you're referencing.
