Written! The Lyrics Of Grandmaster Caz

Posted in 1 on December 2, 2012 by bobbybounce

Grandmaster Caz is a Hip Hop pioneer who can genuinely be credited as one of the inventors of Rap, and now via The Lyric Book Company, his lyrics will be reproduced and published for the first time in Written! The Lyrics Of Grandmaster Caz. The book will be available November 19th.

Caz is perhaps best known as the writer of Big Bang Hank’s rhyme in Rappers Delight. The lyrics were stolen from him and he has never been credited or paid a dollar for writing the words to possibly the most famous Rap record ever.

Caz went on to join the legendary Cold Crush Brothers whose party rocking style would greatly influence many of Rap’s greatest MCs.

In 2012, Caz became the unexpected star of Ice-T’s seminal rap movie Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap. In the movie Caz receives props from many of the cast, including Ice-T, Rev Run, Rakim and Eminem, who cite him as one of the godfathers of Rap. As a result of the movie, Caz’s career is enjoying a significant renaissance.

Paul Toogood, one of the producers of Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap said: “It’s hard to describe the constant outpouring of love and respect that I have witnessed for Caz over the two years that it took to make our movie. Caz has been described as The Robert Johnson of rap; very little recorded music by Caz exists due to him being stuck in a restrictive deal for 20 years. The esteem in which he is held by his peers is quite extraordinary. When we interviewed Eminem for the movie he asked me, “Is this the same film that Caz is in?” I said it was and he said “Dope – let’s do the interview!”

Written! The Lyrics Of Grandmaster Caz is available for preorder at and will be available on and selected stores November 19th. #ShoutOut:
