We lost the godmother of hip-hop earlier this week. Sylvia Robinson, the co-founder of Sugar Hill Records, passed away on Thursday. Here’s a playlist of some of the music from Sugar Hill. You’ll hear music from The Sugar Hill Gang, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, The Treacherous Three, The Funky 4 +1, The Sequence and more. RIP Sylvia Robinson.

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

She put out 2 of the most important records in hip-hop history.  Rapper’s Delight was the first record to put hip-hop on the global map and The Message forever changed the notion of what hip-hop could be. Click below to hear the playlist.
