Since it ostensibly includes Grandmaster Flash on the decks, The Younger Generation may be considered an alias for [a=Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five]. However, since early rap groups were often named for their MCs alone, it may be more appropriate to think of it as an alias for [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Furious+Five,+The]The Furious Five[/url].

In a [url=http://www.thafoundation.com/melemelintf5.htm]a 2002 interview[/url], after he talked about The Furious Five's original lineup, [a=Melle Mel] was asked, [i]"How did the record "We Rap More Mellow" come about, and why were you called the Younger Generation?"[/i] He responded, [i]"[a=Terry Lewis (2)] produced it and put it out without our knowledge. We didn't sign contracts or anything.....he just threw the name Younger Generation on it."[/i]
