The Sugarhill Gang

The Sugarhill Gang were a trio of American hip hop musicians, known mostly for one hit, "Rapper's Delight", the first rap single. They were picked up by producer Sylvia Robinson who also founded Sugar Hill Records[?].

The song was a best-seller in 1979 (see 1979 in music), though hip hop was dismissed as a brief fad. The Sugarhill Gang never again topped the charts, though they had a few minor hits. In 1999 (see 1999 in music), they reunited and recorded Jump on It[?], a hip hop children's album.

Grandmaster Caz[?] from the Cold Crush Brothers[?] claims that the Sugarhill Gang used his rhymes on Rapper's Delight.
