Movie Summary

Director:
Roger Paradiso
Released:
2011
Rating:
Not Available
Join filmmaker Roger Paradiso as he follows two hip-hop legends on their quest to reclaim the names that were wrongfully stolen from them, and get the credit they've been denied for 30 years. In 1979, The Sugarhill Gang released the single "Rapper's Delight." An instant hit, it not only brought hip-hop to the masses, and inspired generations of talented young rappers. Incredibly, what happened next is every musical artist's worst nightmare. Rife with corruption, the powers that be at Sugarhill Records erased the names of original writers and band members Wonder Mike (Michael Wright) and Master Gee (Guy O'Brien) every release, trademarked both of their stage names and the name of the group, and commenced to making millions as the artists who wrote the music never saw a dime. Now, after three decades of injustice, the original members of The Sugarhill Gang break the silence about the swindle that cost them everything.
