the sugarhill gang "rapper’s delight" 1979

“Rapper’s Delight” is a 1979 single by American hip hop trio The Sugarhill Gang. While it was not the first song to feature rapping, it is the first song made by a hip hop or rap group, and is generally considered to be the first true hip hop release, followed closely (just a few days later) by Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five’s “Superrappin”. “Rapper’s Delight” is the song that first popularized hip hop in the United States and around the world through massive and immediate radio airplay. The song is ranked #248 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and #2 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs. Like many songs from the time, “Rapper’s Delight” was performed over the breakdown section of a disco hit (played by the group Positive Force), in this case Chic’s “Good Times”. Download.
