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 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 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.

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!

Great documentary about the history & backstory of Silvia Robinson, Sugar Hill Records, the Sugar Hill Gang and their groundbreaking hit 'Rappers Delight'. Enlightening, very informative and more than worth the price of admission! You won't be disappointed.

Surprised by the behind the scenes fighting, deceit and corruption. Changed my opinion of Sylvia Robinson, I'll leave it at that. How can you appropriate someone else's work as your own just for the money? Those of us that know who the Sugarhill Gang were and are, know better. The judge in the case half-assed the decision and while they were able to recoup their individual names, they still got robbed.

I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary. It gave me a lot more insight into the music industry, it's manipulation and greed. I hope it works out for Mike and Guy as they struggle to get back what rightfully belongs to them. My heart goes out to them. I was glad to hear that Mike prays....I believe he will get great results through prayer.

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.
