  • Sugar Hill Gang - Rappers Delight - Chic - Good Times - HQ Audio mix )))

    7:18

    Rapper's Delight is a 1979 hip hop track by the Sugarhill Gang and produced by Sylvia Robinson. While it was not the first single to include rapping, Rapper's Delight is credited for introducing hip hop music to a wide audience. It was a prototype for various types of rap music, incorporating themes such as boasting, dance, honesty and sex, with the charisma and enthusiasm of James Brown. The track interpolates Chic's Good Times, resulting in band members Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards suing Sugar Hill Records for copyright infringement; a settlement was reached that gave the two songwriter credits.

    Good Times is a song by American R&B band Chic from their third album Risqué (1979). The disco song, ranked No. 229 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, has become one of the most sampled tunes in music history, most notably in hip hop music.

    Rapper's Delight is number 251 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and number 2 on VH1's 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs. It is also included in NPR's list of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century. It was preserved into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2011. Songs on the National Recording Registry are culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.

    The song was recorded in a single take. There are three versions of the original version of the song: 14:35 (12 long version), 6:30 (12 short version), and 3:55 (7 shortened single version

  • War ~ Low Rider 1975 Funky Purrfection Version

    8:52

    As part of 60's group The Animals, Eric Burdon sang lead on the #1 hit The House Of The Rising Sun and thirteen other Top 40 tunes. In 1970, he left the Animals and recorded Spill The Wine with War, a Latin band from Long Beach, CA who backed him until 1971. Producer Jerry Goldstein had seen the band at a gig in Hollywood and became enamored of their distinctive sound.


    The original members were Howard Scott, Lee Oskar, Lonnie Jordon, Charles Miller, Thomas Allen, Morris Dickerson and Harold Brown and all shared lead vocals. After the success of Spill The Wine, Eric left and the band soldiered on to spread their message of brotherhood and harmony and spoke out against social inequalities and gangs.


    Slippin' Into Darkness was issued in 1973 and became a #16 hit and then The World Is A Ghetto peaked at #7 in early 1973. The Cisco Kid single peaked at #2 for two weeks, becoming their most popular single ever. Why Can't We Be Friends LP was issued in 1975 and held two top 10 singles, the title track and second single Low Rider both peaked at #7, but then Low Rider did one better by taking the #1 spot on the R&B chart for one week.


    Howard explained that the song came about from the low rider culture, We went to school with all the low riders and it seemed like a natural thing to write a song about the low riders. During the 50's and 60's, young Chicanos created a car style that expressed the pride and playfulness of the Mexican American culture by installing hydraulics that lowered the car's body closer to the ground and also allowed the car to bounce up and down. The style reached its peak in the mid 70's and became a symbol of Mexican/American pride, the cars decorated with rims with spinners, superior paint jobs, custom interiors with specialized steering wheels made of chain and extensive paint details.


    At the jam session Charles Miller began singing about low riders after the band found a groove and played it until they felt it was solid, then edited it. The band finished the song adding the horn line and creating an enduring classic 70's tune that has transcended the years.

    Lyrics:
    [Verse 1: Coolio]
    As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
    I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left
    ‘Cause I've been blastin' and laughin' so long
    That even my momma thinks that my mind is gone
    But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it
    Me be treated like a punk, you know that's unheard of
    You better watch how you talkin' and where you walkin'
    Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
    I really hate to trip, but I gotta loc
    As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke
    Fool, I'm the kinda G that little homies wanna be like
    On my knees in the night, sayin' prayers in the street light
    [Hook 1: LV]
    Been spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    Been spending most their lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    [Verse 2: Coolio]
    Look at the situation they got me facin'
    I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the street
    So I gotta be down with the hood team
    Too much television watching, got me chasing dreams
    I'm a educated fool with money on my mind
    Got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye
    I'm a loc'd out gangsta, set trippin' banger
    And my homies are down, so don't arouse my anger
    Fool, death ain't nothin' but a heart beat away
    I'm livin' life do or die, what can I say?
    I'm 23 now, will I live to see 24?
    The way things is going I don't know
    [Hook 2: LV]
    Tell me why are we so blind to see
    That the ones we hurt are you and me?
    [Hook 1]
    Been spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    Been spending most their lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    [Verse 3: Coolio]
    Power and the money, money and the power
    Minute after minute, hour after hour
    Everybody's running, but half of them ain't lookin'
    It's going on in the kitchen, but I don't know what's cookin'
    They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me
    If they can't understand it, how can they reach me?
    I guess they can't, I guess they won't
    I guess they front; that's why I know my life is out of luck, fool!
    [Hook 1]
    Been spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    Been spending most their lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    [Hook 2]
    Tell me why are we so blind to see
    That the ones we hurt are you and me?
    Tell me why are we so blind to see
    That the ones we hurt are you and me?

  • Chic ~ Le Freak 1978 Disco Purrfection Version

    9:23

    Le Freak was written after a huge disappointment the pair experienced after being denied entry to Studio 54 to see Grace Jones perform. That fateful night was New Year's Eve 1977 and the duo had been invited by Grace to see her show and then meet to discuss a recording collaboration. The guys embodied the Chic fashion mystique, dressed themselves to the nines for the occasion, only to be shot down. Apparently, Grace had neglected to put them on the list. The doorman's surliness only added to their misery, but they hung out until 1AM hoping Grace would notice the oversight, who never did. They dejectedly left, picking up a bottle of champagne and walked over to Nile's apartment to salve their egos. Starting to jam with bass and guitar, they began working some serious music therapy along with some rather rude exhortations that perfectly expressed their disappointment. The first part of the song that came together was Bernard's guitar and then Niles wrote a bass part to compliment that. The chorus came next along with the spontaneous F words to help them blow off steam. A demo was made and the boys knew they were on their way. A change of lyric of F*ck Off to Freak Off advanced the song one more level and then they blew it into the stratosphere when they changed Off to Out after they found out there was an actual Freak dance out there (remember the Freaky Deaky?). A final name change to Le Freak gave it international appeal miles away from the snarl of a song it started out as. I for one would love to hear the demo, Nile Rodgers could hopefully dig it out someday. At the time, Le Freak spent 5 weeks at #1 pop and R&B, a true crossover juggernaut that became the biggest non Christmas single ever, Warner Bros. biggest single ever and the third most copyrighted song in history after White Christmas at #1 and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer at #2. It is the #8 disco song of all time according to the Billboard Hot Dance/Disco reference book. What am I doing remixing a stone cold classic? I thought maybe some DJ's would enjoy a integrated version to play off, and I wanted you to hear the mastery of the original's music and vocal tracks in breaks. 40 years later, this one still kicks butt inciting a stampede to the dance floor. Thank God for Chic, they really did save us from a life of drudgery by giving us the finest disco music ever created and a chance to unburden our cares on the dance floor.

    The Evolution Of Hip-Hop [1979 - 2020], Best Rap Song Of Each Year

    Hip-hop has arguably been the most polarizing genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. Hip-hop has two phases, old school and new school each of which give off a different vibe.

    Old School “Hip-Hop” has music based prevalently on more sophisticated lyrics, stories, sampling & flows. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E often rap about the struggles of growing up in a poor environment and the work they put in to get where they are today.

    “New school” hip-hop has different types of lyrics and sampling became less popular. Rappers from today’s generation sing typically about girls, money, and cars they have. Some even sing about how they do drgs, drink alchl, and party which sets a bad example for some listeners.

    Many people prefer Old School Hip-Hop, which do you prefer?

  • Chic ~ I Want Your Love 1978 Disco Purrfection Version

    13:41

    It's been 40 years since when this was #1 on the Disco chart for 7 weeks starting the week ending November 25, up to December 30, 1978 when the combo of Le Freak, Chic Cheer and I Want Your Love ruled the clubs. A seriously funky disco song with a groove that never ends, it doesn't build and break like the anthemic Le Freak but has this hypnotizing mix of polyrhythms that intoxicate, hypnotize and invigorate.


    I hope you like this new extended remix, I really enjoyed putting this one together...the fabulous and famous Chic string section open this sinuously sexy song remix of want and need, something we can all relate to. I love the strings in this one, so beautifully produced and performed by three women who are Cheryl Hong, Karen Milne and Marianne Carroll. They played on every Chic project starting with 1978's C'est Chic all the way to Real People in 1980, Sheila & B Devotion's Spacer and on Johnny Mathis' stillborn Chic produced I Love My Lady that finally saw official release in 2019.


    The new style the boys used for Johnny Mathis was more subdued and perfect for the time, but Mathis' manager and label felt that it did not advance his career and that he was barely recognizable. I think that it would have been a hit, revitalizing Johnny's career and the remixes would have been out of this world had they gone ahead with the project back in 1980. Promo versions on vinyl made their way to some DJ's, notably Tee Scott who famously played some of the tracks on his radio show and then bootlegs were being passed around the internet for years. There even was a website that had some of the tracks uploaded so you could listen to them and they finally got all the tracks up there some time ago, a few years before the official release of a few songs from I Love My Lady that made its appearance on Nile Rodgers Presents The Chic Organization* - Box Set Vol. 1 / Savoir Faire in 2010. I for one would still love to hear the demo for Le Freak with all its expletive deleted glory.

    7:50

    More Hot Chocolate? check out my remix of Every 1's A Winner 1978 Disco Purrfection Version

    When Brit Pop is this good, its really hard to stop wanting more! The I first heard of Hot Chocolate was from the mini-drama weeper Emma. The stark production with the steady beat and a lot of minor notes evoked the despair of the heroine who only wanted to be a star. Around that time Connie Stevens had done a TV movie The Sex Symbol a racy 70's re-visioning of the life of Marilyn Monroe. It was not Grammy material, but I felt sad when Connie Stevens died in the last scene. Haven't seen it since. I have always equated the two, and I was a big fan of Emma.

    Then the band recorded a parable about an interracial relationship called Brother Louie which became a #1 UK hit for them, but a cover of that song done by The Stories took the same honors in the US. Bird-dogged once, Errol did not give up and continued to write and then in 1975 put out You Sexy Thing which became an instant disco classic. Placing at #3 on the Hot 100 it was released in 1975, but ended up peaking in 1976. Cover upon cover of You Sexy Thing have been issued and a remix of the original produced by Ben Liebrand was released in 1987. It has also been featured on soundtracks of the following films; Reservoir Dogs, Dude, Where Is My Car, Legally Blonde, and Boogie Nights among other films.

  • Bee Gees ~ Night Fever 1977 Disco Purrfection Version

    12:52

    The Bee Gees became quite adept at mastering pop music with sweet ballads in the 60's and ended up claiming the pop charts for themselves with a white hot streak of disco/dance oriented songs that began with 1975's #1 hit Jive Talkin'. This new funkier Arif Mardin produced incarnation set the trend in quality of production and arrangement of music and vocals. Jive Talkin' was a hit at the time Jaws was rolling over the competition at the movies that summer. A second from the same album was also a #1 hit, You Should Be Dancing. Mardin was the producer who got them in touch with what was happening in pop radio at the time, had them listen and then directed their sound towards R&B. In the meantime, Robert Stigwood had signed a new distribution deal with Polydor instead of re-signing with Atlantic. When the time came to record the follow up to Main Course, they found out that Arif was no longer available to them due to his being a house producer under contract to produce only Atlantic artists. Instead of giving up, they took what they learned from Mardin's productions and did them one better...by hiring the studio engineers they had worked with on their biggest hits to date. They did run into a problem when the drummer had a family emergency and had to return home before he was able to complete the rest of the tracks for the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Experiments with a primitive drum machine to replace him failed but gave birth to a novel idea. One of the engineers remembered that they already had a drum track in the can and floated the idea of making a drum loop from it and using it for other songs. Barry picked the bar and the two engineers labouriously came up with the loop which sounded insistent without sounding machine-like and used it on Night Fever, Stayin' Alive and their version of More Than A Woman. Pretty cool, eh? Apparently, they also used it on Barbra Streisand's Woman In Love single. Night Fever was the biggest hit they had from that album, spending eight weeks at the top of the pop charts in early 1978. Even after their #1 pop successes up to Stayin' Alive, Night Fever was not the highest new entry that week hopping in at #76, while Barry Manilow took the honor with I Can't Smile Without You which entered at #63, 13 slots higher....This song will always represent the absolute peak of disco to me, it is sweetly intoxicating with a magical backbeat and spent eight weeks at #1.

    Double Dutch Bus is a 1981 funk song by Frankie Smith, made famous for its extensive use of the izz infix form of slang. The song title represents a combination of two institutions in Smith's Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, neighborhood: the double Dutch game of jump rope played by neighborhood kids, and the SEPTA bus system that was a backbone of the local transportation network (and for which Smith had unsuccessfully applied for a bus driving position; the Transpass referred to in the song is an actual SEPTA pass). Smith and co-writer Bill Bloom persuaded contacts at WMOT Records to finance the song, and it was recorded in the summer of 1981, engineered by Gene Leone. The song rocketed to popularity in a matter of weeks. On the U.S. Billboard R&B chart, it held the number one spot for eight weeks. It also crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 30 in the summer of 1981.[1] The record has received two separate gold certifications, one for sales of the 7 edit, and a second gold record for sales of the 12 single.

    Good Times is a 1979 song composed by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers. It was first recorded by their band, Chic, for their 1979 album, Risqué. In August of that year it became the band's second number one single on both the Billboard Hot 100 and soul singles chart. Along with the tracks, My Forbidden Lover, and My Feet Keep Dancing, Good Times reached number three on the disco charts. The song has become one of the most sampled tunes in music history, most notably in rap and hip-hop music. Billboard magazine named Good Times the number one R&B single for 1979.

    The song is ranked #229 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

    The lyrics are largely based on Milton Ager's Happy Days Are Here Again. It also contains lines based on lyrics featured in About a Quarter to Nine made famous by Al Jolson. Nile Rodgers has stated that these depression-era lyrics were used as a hidden way to comment on the then-current economic depression in the United States.

    Chic is an American band that was organized during 1976 by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards. It is known best for its commercially successful disco songs, including Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah) (1977), Everybody Dance (1977), Le Freak (1978), I Want Your Love (1978), Good Times (1979), and My Forbidden Lover (1979). The group regarded themselves as a rock band for the disco movement that made good on hippie peace, love and freedom. In October 2014, Chic was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the tenth time.

    Good times, these are the good times
    Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
    Good times, these are the good times
    Our new state of mind, these are the good times

    Happy days are here again
    The time is right for makin' friends
    Let's get together, how 'bout a quarter to ten
    Come tomorrow, let's all do it again

    Boys will be boys, better let them have their toys
    Girls will be girls, cute pony tails and curls
    Must put an end to this stress and strife
    I think I want to live the sporting life

    Good times, these are the good times
    Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
    Good times, these are the good times
    Our new state of mind, these are the good times

    A rumor has it that it's getting late
    Time marches on, just can't wait
    The clock keeps turning, why hesitate
    You silly fool, you can't change your fate

    Let's cut the rug, little jive and jitterbug
    We want the best, we won't settle for less
    Don't be a drag, participate
    Clams on the half shell and roller skates, roller skates

    Good times, these are the good times
    Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
    Good times, these are the good times
    Our new state of mind, these are the good times

    Good times

    A rumor has it that it's getting late
    Time marches on, just can't wait
    The clock keeps turning, why hesitate

    We want the best, we won't settle for less
    Don't be a drag, participate

    Blue Boy is a pseudonym for the Scottish DJ, Alexis 'Lex' Blackmore.
    The single Remember Me peaked at #8 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1997. The single also went to number two on the American dance chart.
    The track is built around two samples from the 1973 live version of Woman of the Ghetto, a 1969 soul song by Marlena Shaw, originally recorded for her album The Spice of Life. Near the end is the line: Remember me? I'm the one who had your babies, in reference to African-American maids raising white children for little pay.

    6:05

    In the early days of hip-hop, Sylvia Robinson assembled the Sugarhill Gang to record the world-changing song “Rapper’s Delight.”

    About Drunk History:
    Based on the popular web series, Drunk History is the liquored-up narration of our nation's history. Host Derek Waters, along with an ever-changing cast of actors and comedians, travels across the country to present the rich tales that every city in this land has to offer. Booze helps bring out the truth. It's just that sometimes the truth is a little incoherent.

    Best Rap Song Of Each Year 2020, Best Hip-Hop Songs 2020, Most Popular Rap Songs 2020, Evolution Of Hip-Hop

    The best hip-hop songs of all time are those songs that touch our soul. They make us smile, laugh, cry, think, move and shake what our mama (or papa) gave us. #evolutionofhiphop

    I traveled back four decades and dug through a pile of tunes to compile a list of the greatest songs hip-hop has ever witnessed.

    Picking hip-hop's greatest songs is an incredibly difficult (and incredibly fun) undertaking, considering the various styles that have splintered the genre every way imaginable. Now 40 years old, hip-hop no more belongs to Bronx originators than it does to today's kids; its popularity has stretched to all corners, and the various mutations reflect that. Our picks reflect the songs that innovated, enlightened, delighted, and lasted. These are hip-hop tracks that, with any justice, our grandchildren will have on playlists that are implanted into their brains, or whatever.

  • Kurtis Blow-The Breaks

    7:52

    Clap your hands everybody
    If you got what it takes
    'Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know
    That these are the breaks

    Breaks on a bus brakes on a car
    Breaks to make you a superstar
    Breaks to win and breaks to lose
    But these here breaks will rock your shoes
    And these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!

    If your woman steps out with another man
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    And she runs off with him to Japan
    And the IRS says they want to chat
    And you can't explain why you claimed your cat
    And Ma Bell sends you a whopping bill
    With eighteen phone calls to Brazil
    And you borrowed money from the mob
    And yesterday you lost your job
    Well, these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up

    Throw your hands up in the sky
    And wave 'em 'round from side to side
    And if you deserve a break tonight
    Somebody say alright! (All right)
    Say ho-oo! (Ho-oo!)
    And you don't stop
    Keep on, somebody scream!( Owwwww!)
    Break down!

    Breaks on a stage, breaks on a screen
    Breaks to make your wallet lean
    Breaks run cold and breaks run hot
    Some folks got 'em and some have not
    But these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!
    Break down!

    To the girl in brown, stop messing around
    (Break it up, break it up)
    To the guy in blue, whatcha gonna do?
    (Break it up, break it up)
    To the girl in green, don't be so mean
    (Break it up, break it up)
    And the guy in red, say what I said
    (Break it up, break it up)
    Break down!

    Brakes on a plane, brakes on a train
    Breaks to make you go insane
    Breaks in love, breaks in war
    But we got the breaks to get you on the floor
    And these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!
    Break down! Yo!

    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!

    You say last week you met the perfect guy
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    And he promised you the stars in the sky
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    He said his Cadilac was gold
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    But he didn't say it was ten years old
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    He took you out to the Red Coach grill
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    But he forgot the cash and you paid the bill
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    And he told you the story of his life
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    But he forgot the part about...his wife!
    (That's the breaks, Huh! Huh! that's the breaks)
    Well, these are the breaks!
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!
    Break down!

    Lyrics:

    I said a hip hop
    Hippie to the hippie
    The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it out
    Bubba to the bang bang boogie, boobie to the boogie
    To the rhythm of the boogie the beat
    Now, what you hear is not a test I'm rappin' to the beat
    And me, the groove, and my friends are gonna try to move your feet
    See, I am Wonder Mike, and I'd like to say hello
    To the black, to the white, the red and the brown
    The purple and yellow, but first, I gotta
    Bang bang, the boogie to the boogie
    Say up jump the boogie to the bang bang boogie
    Let's rock, you don't stop
    Rock the rhythm that'll make your body rock
    Well so far you've heard my voice but I brought two friends along
    And the next on the mic is my man Hank
    C'mon, Hank, sing that song, check it out
    Well, I'm Imp the Dimp, the ladies' pimp
    The women fight for my delight
    But I'm the grandmaster with the three MCs
    That shock the house for the young ladies
    And when you come inside, into the front
    You do the Freak, Spank, and do the Bump
    And when the sucker MC's try to prove a point
    We're Treacherous Trio, we're the serious joint
    A from sun to sun and from day to day
    I sit down and write a brand new rhyme
    Because they say that miracles never cease
    I've created a devastating masterpiece
    I'm gonna rock the mic 'til you can't resist
    Everybody, I say it goes like this
    Well, I was coming home late one dark afternoon
    A reporter stopped me for an interview
    She said she's heard stories and she's heard fables
    That I'm vicious on the mic and the turntable
    This young reporter I did adore
    So I rocked some vicious rhymes like I never did before
    She said, damn, fly guy, I'm in love with you
    The Casanova legend must have been true
    I said, by the way, baby, what's your name?
    Said, I go by name of Lois Lane
    And you could be my boyfriend, you surely can
    Just let me quit my boyfriend called Superman
    I said, he's a fairy, I do suppose
    Flyin' through the air in pantyhose
    He may be very sexy, or even cute
    But he looks like a sucker in a blue and red suit
    I said, you need a man who's got finesse
    And his whole name across his chest
    He may be able to fly all through the night
    But can he rock a party 'til the early light?
    He can't satisfy you with his little worm
    But I can bust you out with my super sperm!
    I go do it, I go do it, I go do it, do it, do it
    An' I'm here an' I'm there, I'm Big Ban Hank, I'm everywhere
    Just throw your hands up in the air
    And party hardy like you just don't care
    Let's do it, don't stop, y'all, a tick tock, y'all, you don't stop!
    Go ho-tel, mo-tel, whatcha gonna do today? (say what?)
    I'm gonna get a fly girl, gonna get some spank, drive off in a def OJ
    Everybody go, ho-tel, mo-tel, Holiday Inn
    You say if your girl starts actin' up, then you take her friend
    I say skip, dive, what can I say?
    I can't fit 'em all inside my OJ
    So I just take half, and bust 'em out
    I give the rest to Master Gee so he can shock the house
    I said M-A-S, T-E-R, a G with a double E
    I said I go by the unforgettable name
    Of the man they call the Master Gee
    Well, my name is known all over the world
    By all the foxy ladies and the pretty girls
    I'm goin' down in history
    As the baddest rapper there ever could be
    Now I'm feelin' the highs and you're feelin' the lows
    The beat starts gettin' into your toes
    You start poppin' your fingers and stompin' your feet
    And movin' your body while you're sitting in your seat
    And then damn! Ya start doin' the freak, I said
    Damn! Right outta your seat
    Then you throw your hands high in the air
    Ya rockin' to the rhythm, shake your derriere
    Ya rockin' to the beat without a care
    With the sureshot MCs for the affair
    Now, I'm not as tall as the rest of the gang
    But I rap to the beat just the same

  • Rappers Delight - The Sugarhill Gang

    6:29

    Rapper's Delight was a 1979 single by American hip-hop trio The Sugarhill Gang. While it was not the first single to feature rapping, it is generally considered to be the song that first popularized hip-hop in the United States and around the world. The song was ranked #248 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and #2 on VH1's 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs. In late 1979, Debbie Harry of the group Blondie suggested that Chic's Nile Rodgers join her and Chris Stein at a hip-hop event, which at the time was a communal space taken over by teenagers with boom box stereos playing various pieces of music that performers would break dance to. Rodgers experienced this event the first time himself at a high school in the Bronx. A few weeks later, Blondie, The Clash and Chic were playing a gig in New York at Bonds nightclub. When Chic started playing Good Times, rapper Fab Five Freddy and what were the original members of The Sugarhill Gang jumped up on stage and started rapping freestyle with the band. A few weeks later Rodgers was on the dance floor of New York club LaViticus and heard the DJ play a song which opened with Bernard Edwards' bass line from Chic's Good Times. Rodgers approached the DJ who said he was playing a record he had just bought that day in Harlem. The song turned out to be an early version of Rapper's Delight, which also included a scratched version of the song's string section. Rodgers and Edwards immediately threatened legal action over copyright issues, which resulted in a settlement and them being credited as co-writers. Rodgers admitted that he was originally upset with the song, but would later declare it to be one of [his] favorite songs of all time, also saying that as innovative and important as 'Good Times' was, 'Rapper's Delight' was just as much, if not more so. Rapper's Delight hit #36 on the U.S. pop charts, and #4 on the U.S. R&B chart. In 1979 it became the first hip-hop single to go gold. The following year, the song was the anchor of the group's first album The Sugarhill Gang. It was the first Top 40 song to be available only as a 12-inch extended version in the U.S., and no U.S. 7-inch, 45-RPM record was made. In Europe, however, it was released on the classic 7-inch single format, with a shorter version of the song. The original members, all from Englewood, New Jersey, called themselves Wonder Mike (born Michael Anthony Wright on April 30, 1957), Big Bank Hank a.k.a. 'Imp the Dimp' (born 1956 as Henry Jackson) and Master Gee (born Guy O'Brien in 1963). They were assembled into a group by producer Sylvia Robinson who also founded Sugar Hill Records, along with her husband, the record mogul Joe Robinson.
