ABOUT MASTER GEE
The music world changed forever in 1979 when Master Gee and the Sugarhill Gang penned the iconic “Rapper’s Delight” – a song NPR calls one of the 100 “most important American musical works of the 20th century.”
Little did the humble kid who grew up playing drums and DJing parties in Hackensack, New Jersey realize his gifts with a Numark Mixer, a Technics turntable and a knack for smooth vocal delivery would land him a part as the first Hip Hop act featured on Dick Clark’s Bandstand, the first Hip Hop single to ever go Gold and Platinum, and make him an inductee in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Today, Master Gee actively performs worldwide with the Sugarhill Gang and as a solo DJ in over 100 shows a year, and is a highly sought after public speaker and storyteller. He is not slowing down either. “I’m far from finished. I’m so thankful for the past, and embrace life every day, doing my best to bring great joy and positive emotion wherever I perform.”
