If you know your old-school rap history, then you know that the legendary Sugarhill Gang introduced Hip Hop to the world with the Top 40 Hit "Rapper's Delight." But the story you haven't heard is the shocking truth about how a con game and identity theft led to the band's breakup. Master Gee and Wonder Mike waged a thirty plus year battle against Sugarhill Records to reclaim their names and legacy. In this documentary we hear the true story of two of the original members of The Sugarhill Gang, Michael Wright (Wonder Mike) and Guy O'Brien (Master Gee). The film also features Grandmaster Caz (The Cold Crush Brothers), Melle Mel (Grandmaster Flash), and Vinnie and Treach (Naughty by Nature).
