Remember Mickey Baker passed away recently?


Guess what Sylvia did after she split from Mickey in the early 60s?
She opened Sugar Hill Records and produced/engineered all their first
batches of rap records:


I played Rappers' Delight for my 11 yr old, kids in his middle-school social studies class have been getting requests for cultural artifacts of the time relatives were their age, so that's what I hit him with. He was beyond baffled. If it's not metal, it's not suburban, I guess I have failed him...

In memory of Al Wong, the original poster of this thread. A great kid, killed in a bicycling accident. I can't believe this thread is still going after 8 years but am glad it is.
