"The Sugarhill Gang surely shook the world up with their first smash hit "Rapper’s Delight" in 1979. Featuring their rhymes against Chic’s classic hit Good Times, the song would go on to influence generations of artists for years to come. Consisting of Michael “Wonder Mike” Wright, Henry “Big Bank Hank” Jackson & Guy “Master Gee” O’Brien, these men turned the street sounds of the east coast into a worldwide party and kept it going for many more hits like "Apache & Showdown." Friday Music is honored to announce for the 1st time on vinyl the 2 LP set Rapper's Delight-The Best of Sugarhill Gang.

“(Sylvia) Robinson pulled together a trio -- Big Bank Hank, Wonder Mike and Master Gee -- to record rhymes over Chic's recent Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit "Good Times." The result was a 14-minute single, cut in one take, that found the trio bragging about their sexual prowess, money, peerless skills on the mic and complaining about stomach ache. Kaopectate shout-out aside, it's impressive to think that three out of the four central themes in "Rapper's Delight" still resonate in hip-hop today.”" – Billboard
