It was the novelty hit that legitimized an entire genre of music. Released on September 16, 1979, the Sugarhill Gang's ‘Rapper’s Delight’ introduced hip-hop to the world: to the black, white, red, brown, purple and yellow.
'I Want My Name Back,' a new documentary available on DVD June 11, tells the rich and compelling story of the Sugarhill Gang members Wonder Mike and Master Gee, who are considered to be among the originators of hip-hop. In an exclusive clip from the DVD, the rap pioneers explain the trials and tribulations they faced during their rise to fame.
