Storyline

Highlighting the rise, fall and rise again of original members of The Sugarhill Gang, Wonder Mike (Michael Wright) and Master Gee (Guy O'Brien). The Sugarhill Gang recorded the first ever platinum rap album and rap song and are credited with introducing hip hop to the world more than thirty years ago. We follow The Sugarhill Gang through its chance beginnings in New Jersey, it's rise to fame, and the subsequent struggles of the real Wonder Mike and Master Gee as they try to create new music and battle with their label and an indifferent legal system which stripped them of their identities and rightful legacies.

MAD LOVE FOR THE OG 3 Shame on the Robinson Family
1 February 2014 | by midnight_cinephileSee all my reviews

This is a well produced doc,that exposes the seedy underbelly of the music industry and the decimation of the Quintessential template/group for the HIP-HOP genre.

Let the truth be known,the Robinson family-Joe Sr,Sylvia now dead and their sons robbed.defrauded,and stole the identities of the original super fly talented sugarhill gang and proceeded to rob.ruin and perpetuate endless thieving fraudulent unthinkable atrocities against the main pillar of the lexicon.

This doc is an expose', and sets the record straight for once and all.

ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES!!

SUGARHILL IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE WONDER MIKE,CAZ AND MATER GEE PERIOD. all fraudulent suckas step aside and die with a quickness from the mighty arm of karma.
