The Sugarhill Gang

The Sugarhill Gang


Saturday Nov 10th

Though the Sugarhill Gang inaugurated the history of recorded hip-hop with their single “Rapper’s Delight,” a multi-platinum-seller and radio hit in 1979, the group was cooked up to cash in on a supposed novelty item. Music industry producer and label owner Sylvia Robinson had become aware of the massive hip-hop block parties occurring around the New York area during the late ‘70s, so she gathered three local rappers (Master Gee, Wonder Mike, and Big Bank Hank) to record a single.

Infectious and catchy, “Rapper’s Delight” borrowed the break from Chic’s “Good Times” and became a worldwide hit.
