Rap's first ghostwriting controversy started with Sugar Hill Gang's1979 classic "Rapper's Delight." Group member Big Bank Hank lifted his rhymes from the Cold Crush Brothers' Grandmaster Caz, whom he used to manage. You can even hear Hank spell out "Casanova Fly," Caz's nickname in the track. Caz never received credit — or a single dime — despite the song's continued worldwide success.
