The Sugarhill Gang vs Melle Mel & The Furious Five

On the 7th of August The Jazz Café will welcome 2 of the most important hip-hop outfits to have played a part in the genres movement since its inception in the 1970’s.

Both The Furious Five and The Sugarhill Gang are recognized as being hugely influential during the hip-hop movement, with The Furious Five contributing through their 1982 collaboration with Grandmaster Flash, ‘The Message’. Released on The Sugar Hill Gang’s record label, this, with The Sugar Hill Gang’s own extraordinary ‘Rapper’s Delight’ are amongst the greatest hip-hop recordings ever made, with this performance marking the first time the 2 groups will have played on one stage ever in the UK.

Rapper’s Delight’ was a track that marked the beginning of hip-hop by being the first of it’s kind, eventually to be the first ever rap single to become a Top 40 hit. This appearance from both of these legendary hip-hop outfits will mark the first time they have ever played together in the UK, a reason to be even more excited.

Dubbed a “once in a lifetime opportunity”, this will be the one and only time you will be able to see both the hip-hop legends playing together, so don’t miss out!
