Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome to Wrapper's Delight - A hip hop history podcast where we look at songs influential throughout time as important to the culture. Each episode MMD will look at 1 year starting from 1979 and discuss some of the argument's / candidates for the "best" song of that year (while eating a candy that best represents that song). Best is a term i'm borrowing from The Rap Yearbook by Shea Serrano. This week is 1979 where we discuss Rapper's Delight by Sugar Hill Gang - Paulett & Tanya Winley - Rhymin' and Rappin' and Spoonie Gee's - Spoonin' Rap while eating Gobstoppers candy. It's my opinion that both of the latter songs are better than Rapper's Delight because a) its not from the culture ( Sugar Hill Gang were 3 dudes that were put together to make a hip hop song) b) Big Bank Hank stole much of his work from Grandmaster Caz and c) it's 14:45 minutes long! Rhymin' and Rappin' is far greater example of 1979 rap history because it's a) 2 laddies b) shorter c) a far more chache value. Even Spoonin Rap has ATHF theme song rapper (and let's not forget Hip hop Veteren/Legend) Spoonie Gee and has sample cred as an often cited source material. Like Rapper's Delight this week's candy Gobstoppers overstays it's welcome and is this week's candy.

There are 2 "required" texts 1) The Aforementioned Rap Year Book by Shea Serrano and 2) Chuck D presents this day in Rap/ Hip Hop history
