I Want My Name Back
Whatever happened to the Sugarhill Gang? "I Want My Name Back" highlights 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. The Sugarhill Gang are widely credited with introducing the world to Hip Hop music in 1979. We go back in time with Master Gee and Wonder Mike as they recreate the beginning of commercial Hip Hop. We follow their story as they tour the world and follow up with songs like "Apache" and "8th Wonder." And then one day in 1984 it's gonethe money, fame and more interesting in this case, their names. They lost their identity and legacy as ruthless forces in 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.
