Sugarhill Gang

Rap Group Perhaps best known for their 1979 hit "Rapper's Delight," the Sugarhill Gang was one of the first nationally recognized rap groups. Comprised of solo rappers Wonder Mike, Big Ran Han and Master Gee, Sugarhill Gang was created by Sugar Hill Records founder Sylvia Robinson. The success of "Rapper's Delight" signified hip hop's arrival on the mainstream market. The song was the first hip hop single to reach the Top 40 charts and, although the group's career was short-lived (this would be their only hit), their legacy continues on as the creators of the first recorded hit rap single.
