Sugarhill Gang x Furious 5 (Grandmaster Mele Mel & Scorpio)
Sugarhill Gang will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of "Rapper's Delight", the song that was hip hop's first Billboard hit, by going on tour with their contemporary architects Furious 5 (Grandmaster Mele Mel & Scorpio).
Grandmaster Mele Mel & Scorpio of Furious 5 are known as legendary pioneers of rap. The Bronx-based Furious 5 are credited with creating the term “hip-hop” in the late 1970’s. The group’s 1981 single “The Message,” featuring Grandmaster Mele Mel, is regarded as one of the most influential socially-conscious hip-hop songs of all time.
