There's nothing surprising here. The familiar story of artists who are drawn into a maze of deceit and exploitation only to find themselves on the outside looking in and badly in debt. The interesting twist is how individuals tried to market themselves in false names to the degree that they actually believed in the deceptions! Very well crafted and amazingly revealing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I was hip to some of the things mentioned in the documentary, like musicians calling home needing cash because they hadn't gotten paid, but getting the full story straight from the headliners Master Gee and Wonder Mike of how they were treated and their struggle to regain their brand, their ability to make a living, their names...priceless!

I chose this rating because I thought the movie was excellent. I liked it because it gave a voice to the underdog and it highlighted points-of-view from the top dog. I recommend this movie for everyone who is interested in hip-hop history and music history in general.

I never knew Sugar Hill records was this devious. I grew up on this music and as a DJ during this era the Sugar Hill label had major respect. When we saw a new record in that blue sleeve with the trademark Sugar Hill signature, we would buy the records on site without even hearing them first. Wow...eye opening story.

I enjoyed purchasing this item due to the fact I grew up with "Master Gee" and "Wonder Mike" and others in the film. It was sad to see how money corrupts the best of relationships and even from the sandbox. It is a very important film especially for aspiring musicians and actors and anyone else involved in the entertainment business. A textbook case of concentrating on the "show" and not the "business" of show business. Always retain the best entertainment lawyer you can prior to signing any contracts no matter how desperate your current situation is financially.

man this movie was great i have watched it 3 times! this documentary was filmied over a many years so you see them evolve from like 2009 to 2013.
so the only thing i really dont like is it doesnt get as in depth about their music as i would like but hey what can you say it really inst about their musical upbringing its actually a movie about their name so that fans can find them.
the other thing i want to say about this dvd and wondermike master gee and big hen is that they need to come out with ANOTHER ONE cuz im loving it!

I enjoyed the DVD, but its the same old scam that the entertainment industry always seems to pull on young talent that hasn't learned the financial end of the game, you hate to see this happen but there is an old saying that goes don't run around with your nose all snotty, if you don't know something you ought to ask somebody. I was glad to see them not give up, and they kept on till they got their names , but they also took the song GOOD TIMES without permission. A good DVD on what not to do in the recording industry

This excellent documentary tells the story of the world famous Sugar Hill Gang. Unfortunately, it is not a story full of happy parts but instead more of a cautionary tale of how the group members were ripped off by their former record company, Sugar Hill Records via shady business practices. However, two of the original rappers of the Sugar Hill Gang, Wonder Mike and Master Gee, seemed to have worked tirelessly to reverse their fortunes. I highly recommend this documentary!
