Hailing from New Jersey, The Sugarhill Gang is probably the first professional hip-hop group to introduce this genre of music to the world. Their 1979 hit single ‘Rapper’s Delight’ sold over 8 million copies and became the biggest-selling rap single of all time.
In 2009, the band released their first song in 25 years with Bob Sinclair ‘LaLa Song’. The song went on to become an international hit, winning Song of the Year in many European countries. In 2016, band members Wonder Mike, Master Gee, Hendogg and DJ Dynasty embarked on their first world tour in over a decade and has continued to perform for sold-out crowds throughout the world including the Hong Kong Clockenflap Festival and the V Festival in Hylands Park and Weston Park.
