The Sugar Hill Gang Biography

In the early 1970’s, a new musical genre was born in the neighbourhoods of the South Bronx in New York. Teenagers with imagination built a new musical style taken from a number of influences, turning them into a whole new musical genre. Hip-Hop, was a product of pure street-wise ingenuity and was created by extracting rhythms and melodies from existing records and mixing with streetwise lyrics and street poetry. From this came the origins of Rap.

The Sugar Hill Gang, scored the first and most popular Hip Hop single of all time, ‘Rappers Delight’. ‘Rappers Delight’ was released on Sugar Hill Records in 1979 and became the biggest selling single ever with over 8 million sold. This truly revolutionary release is still selling today and remains a timeless party anthem.
