What a contributor to the foundation of Hip Hop. Rappers Delight being almost 15 minutes long full of that contagious beat and light hearted rhymes is the ultimate classic hip hop song.And boy to try to hang on the dance floor for that whole song will sure show your age and how out of shape you are.LOL! Sad part is that it gets ahold of you and you can’t sit your butt down. Much respect to this brutha and his group for all they gave us. Rest in peace Sir. Prayers to his family ad friends.
