Sugarhill Gang – Rapper’s Reprise (Jam-Jam)

Sugar Hill Records (US) [SH-545] 1980



Commercially unreleased second offering from Master Gee, Wonder Mike & Big Bank Hank (R.I.P.) in the US. “Rapper’s Reprise” is a nice disco boogie rap follow up to “Rapper’s Delight” and The Sequence while the flip has a slightly harder sound and also contains a nice drum break which has been sampled by the likes of the Beastie Boys, De La Soul & Stezo.

It was issued in the UK as the B side to the soulful track “Bad News”.

The acetate of this track, which is pictured below, is a slightly different version which sounds like it was mixed differently and has a slightly rawer edge to it.
