“We Like Hot Butter on Our Breakfast Toast”

Legendary Sugar Hill Recording Studio destroyed by fire:

    An early morning fire on West Street in Englewood, New Jersey, destroyed the Sugar Hill recording studio, which is believed to be the place that the Sugarhill Gang recorded “Rapper’s Delight” in the late ’70s. The fire began at 2 a.m. ET on Friday (October 11) and was eventually controlled with the assistance of more than 80 firefighters.

    The Sugarhill Gang comprised Big Bang Hank, Wonder Mike, and Master Gee, and they released “Rapper’s Delight” in 1979. The song is largely credited as being the first rap radio hit, exposing the masses for the first time to an art form that would eventually sit at the heart of today’s pop culture.

All things must pass, but this blows chunks. Who doesn’t love “Rapper’s Delight,” even if you have some trouble with the cultural onslaught it unleashed?

    i said a hip hop the hippie the hippie

    and me, the groove, and my friends are gonna try to move your feet
