Hip-Hop Pioneer Sylvia Robinson Dies at 75-Today’s One Hit Wonder At 1

Sylvia Robinson, the singer who rose to prominence as half of the duo Mickey & Sylvia before embarking on a solo career and earning the title the “Mother of Hip-Hop” as a co-founder of the seminal rap label Sugar Hill Records, passed away Thursday at the age of 75 after suffering congestive heart failure.

The New York City native first tasted success with ‘Love Is Strange,’ the Mickey & Sylvia single that topped the R&B charts — and was a top 20 pop hit — in 1956. In the early ’70s, billed simply as Sylvia, Robinson scored another number one R&B hit with ‘Pillow Talk.’

Demi Lovato Covers Lil Wayne’s ‘How to Love’ [VIDEO]

When Lil Wayne was working on tracks for ‘Tha Carter IV,’ he decided to take a moment to explore his sensitive side. The result was ‘How to Love,’ a rare moment of introspective balladry from the hip-hop magnate that paid off with a cross-format smash.

Is Snoop Dogg Going to Star in His Own Sitcom?

As a young Dr. Dre protege, Snoop Doggy Dogg only had his mind on his money and his money on his mind. The idea that he’d one day be making cameos on ‘One Life to Live’ or starring in a reality series about his family would have seemed ludicrous.
