Syliva Robinson, one of the earliest hip hop entrepreneurs, died Thursday in New Jersey at the age of 76.

Along with her husband Joe, the couple founded Sugar Hill Records, one of the most influential early hip hop labels, and released the seminal single “Rapper’s Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang.

Prior to kicking doors down in the hip hop world, Mrs. Robinson had a singing career of her own including the single “Pillow Talk”.
