Sugarhill Gang & Grandmaster Mele Mel & Scorpio The Furious 5 on Thursday 28th May 2020

Responsible for the first rap song to reach the Top 40 in the Billboard Hot 100, 'Rapper's Delight' creators The Sugarhill Gang remain one of the most recognisable names in hip hop. The New York collective used samples of funk, soul and disco to rap their lyrics over, famously using Chic's 'Good Times' as a base for their most successful hit.

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5 became a household name on the strength of records like ‘Freedom’, ‘The Message’, ‘White Lines’, ‘Superrappin’, ‘Beat Street’, ‘New York, New York’, ‘Survival’ and ‘Scorpio’. In the UK, the group charted in the top ten with ‘White Lines’, ‘Beat Street’ and ‘Step Off’.

‘The Message’ was the first Rap song to contain a social commentary and is in the archives of the Library of Congress for its social relevance within that time period. The song is considered one of the twenty-five most important of the last fifty years, proven by the fact that in 2013 ‘The Message’ was the first Hip Hop record inducted into the Grammy’s Hall of Fame.
