The Sugarhill Gang In-depth Biography

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, eventually selling more than eight million copies. Most industry people figured rap} for a short-lived trend, and though they were dead wrong, the Sugarhill Gang} certainly didn't carry the torch; despite several modest hits ("8th Wonder,"} "Apache"}) the trio faded quickly and was gone by the mid-'80s, only returning in 1999 with Jump on It}, a rap} album for children. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide
