Sylvia Robinson a one time minor pop star "Sylvia" in her own right and her husband Joe from Sugar Hill Records, was at a niece's birthday party at the Harlem International Disco when she told to George Clinton short after: "All of a sudden i heard these three guys rapping over the microphone. Something hit me - I thought they were fantastic. An inner voice said to me, "That's a concept". (Tim Lawrence, report)
The three rappers was hired by The Fatback Band for the song "King Tim III (Personal Jock)".
The early rap if not the earliest rap record released, approximate this concept its public breakthrough for the struggling Brooklyn funk group Fatback (The Fatback Band) and the rap concept itself.
It was exact these three young rappers Master Gee (Guy O'Brien), Wonder Mike (Michael Wright) and Big Bank Hank (Henry Jackson) who were picked by the Robinson's to record: "Rapper's Delight" for a twelve inch record on which the Chic's bass line "Good Times" was recreated and took extremely part for the subsequent success. Chic's "Good Times" was still in the ears of the dance people. (Released summer of 1979)
Most of us knows the story of the "Rapper's Delight" success, which was released in October 1979 and went top ten in several countries, nobody knows at the time who the hell are "The Sugarhill Gang"?
The song "King Tim III (Personal Jock)" features a previous marginal DJ called King Tim III and reference days when radio rapping jocks infused their shows with rhyming jive.
