A portrait of the Sugarhill Gang, the group that is widely credited with introducing the world to Hip Hop music in 1979. Here, we track the rise and fall of former original members, Master Gee and Wonder Mike, creative leaders of the group that recorded the biggest selling hip hop single of all time, "Rapper's Delight." After achieving great success, suddenly the money, the fame and their names were gone in 1984. They lost their identity and legacy as the record industry tried to exploit and destroy them. Thirty years after their historic recording, Master Gee and Wonder Mike come back to reclaim their names.
