Sugarhill Gang

Wonder Mike, Big Bank Hank, and Master Gee. While rap music had existed long before these guys or even their parents, their song Rappers Delight was the first ever rap song to hit the top 40 charts. This began the evolution of rap music into a powerful musical genre today with commercial power and world-wide appeal.

Their hits include "Rapper's Delight," "8th Wonder" and "Apache."
