The Sugarhill Gang is an American hip hop group, known mostly for its 1979 hitRapper’s Delight,” the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit. The members, all from Englewood, New Jersey, consisted of Michael “Wonder Mike” Wright, Henry “Big Bank Hank” Jackson, and Guy “Master Gee” O’Brien. The three were assembled into a group by producer Sylvia Robinson, who founded Sugar Hill Records with her husband, record producer Joe Robinson.[2] The group and the record company are named after the Sugar Hill, Harlem, neighborhood.
