Sugarhill or Sugar Hill[edit]

I saw an original video rip on YouTube of The Sugar Hill Gang doing Rapper's Delight. The name of the group was listed as The Sugar Hill Gang and the name of the label was Sugar Hill Gang. If this is the case, shouldn't this page be retitled? Metamorphousthe 14:11, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Caz/Sugar Hill Gang[edit]

Caz was never a member of the Sugar Hill Gang. He was a member of the Cold Crush Brothers. Unless someone has issue with it, I'm going to take him out of the members list. Richard Corey 19:32, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Also, is there any kind of source that we can apply to the claims that Big Bank Hank ripped off Caz lyrics? Right now it looks like hearsay, which shouldn't be included. Secretagentwang 21:02, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

A new documentary (4-part) on Netflix called "Hip Hop Evolution" has brought this fact to light and it even includes an interview with CAZ stating Sugarhill Gang stole most of the song.Thisisfutile (talk) 21:31, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Why is the term 'Hip Hop' being used?[edit]

Seriously.. I don't remember this music or culture, if you will, ever being called 'Hip Hop' in those days. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:26, 2 September 2007 (UTC)


Judging on how short and obviously incomplete this article is, I move that it be labeled a stub. Any thoughts? Diablomarcus (talk) 21:54, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

non-rapper Big Bank Hank[edit]

Why is he called a non-rapper in this article and what exactly is non-rapper supposed to be anyways? Regardless of who wrote his lyrics, he is still a rapper. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:19, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Master Gee[edit]

Master Gee (musician) points to the page of The Sugarhill Gang. All other members have their own page? Mmm. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:48, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Lala song  2009    25-04-2009      18      1*      met Hendogg, Master Gee & Wonder Mike from the original Sugarhill Gang

#1 spot in the Netherlands Top 40[edit]

Don't know if this information is useful, but in the Netherlands they did reach a #1 position in the Top 40. First country where they reached this position actually, according to Top 40 Hitdossier 1965-2005 by Johan van Slooten. See if you think it's worth including. -- (talk) 16:58, 19 November 2009 (UTC)


Their "riches to rags to riches" story is told in the documentary I Want My Name Back (2011). (talk) 04:10, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Singular or Plural[edit]
