Sugarhill Gang – The Artist

The Sugarhill Gang is an American hip hop trio. The members, all from Englewood, New Jersey, consisted of Michael “Wonder Mike” Wright, Henry “Big Bank Hank” Jackson, and Guy “Master Gee” O’Brien. The three were assembled into a group by producer Sylvia Robinson, who founded Sugar Hill Records with her husband, record producer Joe Robinson. The group and the record company were named after the Sugar Hill, Harlem, neighbourhood. Their 1979 hit “Rapper’s Delight” was the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit in both the UK and The US. The discography of The Sugarhill Gang includes five studio albums, nine compilations and fifteen singles.

Rapper’s Delight – The Song

‘Rapper’s Delightis a 1979 hip hop track by the Sugarhill Gang and produced by Sylvia Robinson. While it was not the first single to include rapping, “Rapper’s Delight” is credited for introducing hip hop music to a wide audience, reaching the top 40 in the United States, as well as the top 3 in the UK and number-one in Canada. It was a prototype for various types of rap music, incorporating themes such as boasting, dance, honesty and sex, with the charisma and enthusiasm of James Brown.  Since its release it is now considered a song that is of cultural, historical and of aesthetic significance.
