Hip Hop Legends, The Sugarhill Gang, are back in the news with two projects – one on film and one on wax.
The new documentary called I Want My Name Back
was directed by Roger Paradiso and follows the history of Wonder Mike and Master Gee’s struggle against the music industry since their seminal hit “Rapper’s Delight” dropped in 1979. They promise new revelations and surprises about their relationship with Sugar Hill Records and Joey Robinson.
They are also finishing up their newest album that promises to flex their diverse interests and include both reggae and rock based tracks.
