I have a couple few Sugar Hill records I bought in the 80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Gary:

Envious of you guys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm doctorjazz:

Have some of them too. Remember working in a building on a corner, and the grocery store across the street blasted Rapper's Delight at ridiculous volume non stop, full blast, for weeks on end.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm WR:

I've been busy so may have miss it being said, but must also recognize the first lady of hip hop Sylvia Robinson, CEO of Sugar Hill records who produced the first commercial hip hop recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Gary:

I've got a track that Sylvia raps on, if you guys wanna hear it later on -- wasn't queued up, but could be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm spodiodi:

L'Trimm !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Gary:

The girls that go boom
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:07pm tim abdellah:

OMG - it is L'Trimm!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm spodiodi:

*car goes boom*
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm WR:

Only if you think it's a plus to the show. Sylvia's roll for hip hop was early recognition that its time had come and having the indie record company hustle to make it happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Gary:

It's 8 minutes long, but it's not like we get to hear it everyday ... we'll see
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:13pm tim abdellah:

On the other hand, "Love is Strange" is under 3 minutes and has great cowbell. Not exactly hip hop, though.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:13pm WR:

MC Lyte has always been a heavy weight contender to me.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:16pm WR:

And in the middle there is Sylvia's cutting edge disco hit Pillow Talk
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm schmutz:

a lil late but very excited for this show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Gary:

Excited to see you, Schmutz!
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:20pm tim abdellah:

@WR - oh yeah! Pillow Talk is great. I remember that from AM radio as a kid. It was a bit R-rated!
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:21pm tim abdellah:

I've never heard Sylvia doing hip hop - would be interesting to hear, but yeah, only if it makes sense for the show and the flow :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Gary:

Haha, you guys are talkin me into it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm northguineahills:

Sylvia Robinson has been interviewed live on WFMU at least twice in my memory....
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:30pm chresti:

I don't know Sylvia.
  8:32pm peter:

hello all! just pulling in, late! had to go vote
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm northguineahills:

It was in the 2000s, once on Billy Jam's PTNOR, and once on a female dj's show (the name might come to me later).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Gary:

Yay Voting! Yay Peter!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Gary:

NGH, was it on Monica's show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm northguineahills:

Trouble, no, Monica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm northguineahills:

Gary jinxed me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm northguineahills:

Sylvia is a New Jerseyite (RIP).....
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:36pm WR:

en.wikipedia.org...
  8:38pm Andy S.:

Sylvia Robinson was an important and underrated figure in American music. No doubt it was "good to be the queen" (of Englewood NJ) but that did not make this a good record.
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:38pm tim abdellah:

So Sylvia was "The Queen" before Queen Latifah :) This is cool to hear. Not earth shattering for sure, but not clumsy or embarassing. I need some Pillow Talk here in the breakdown, though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Gary:

Andy!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:39pm WR:

I don't know Gary, that was more a historical novelty than a good hop hop song, but now we know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Gary:

Novelty makes the heart stronger
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Charlie:

Wasn't Sylvia's record an answer record to Mel Brooks' record It's Good to Be the King?
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:41pm tim abdellah:

:D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Gary:

Charlie! Wow, whaaaa?
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:43pm WR:

From aging queen to revenge of a 14 year old.

OMG, and it's a rap!!!!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Charlie:

It was a catchphrase from his movie History of the World.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Charlie:

NGH -- nice endorsement!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm chresti:

Wow, Sylvia did Love is Strange with Mickey, in 1957.

Hmm.... It was called Googoosh: Iran's Daughter.

can't imagine what HWA stands for

;p
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Charlie:

It was educational, and had some great film clips, but was very annoyingly edited.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Charlie:

directec by Farhad Zamani
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Gary:

That's the one I meant, but my mind turned the title into the "fact" that it was directed by her daughter [*shrugs*]
