Who is the 1st family of hip hop? After establishing the first ever hip-hop record label and producing the first rap song that made history on the billboards with The Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight,” the world will now get to meet the Robinson Family in a new docu-series, “First Family of Hip Hop.”
Sugarhill Records’ founder Sylvia Robinson who passed in 2011, helped chart the course of early hip-hop in the late ’70s and early ’80s. The trailer features clips from Season 1 and includes appearances from Robinson’s son, Leland Robinson, Sr., and his relatives—Darnell Robinson, Rhondo Robinson, Jr., Antonio Jordan, Lady Luck, Somaya Reece, Eseni Ellington, and Leland Robinson, Jr., who are torn on the future of the label.
Started in 1979, the record label was on the front lines of Hip Hop’s emerging culture thanks to The Sugarhill Gang’s Top 40 Hip Hop single, “Rapper’s Delight.” The label also released other songs like Grandmaster Flash’s “White Lines” and “The Message.” However, the company doesn’t have the same industry reputation as it once did, and the new generation of the Robinson family is aiming to change that.
The next generation of the Robinson Family wants to get their label back into the public eye, with the Robinson brothers, sisters and cousins working with each other to return Sugarhill to the position it once carried.
This generation of young adults doesn’t have pride in working, they believe they are entitled and just because their grandparents or parents worked hard for the company, why should they? Just give them company and let them run it with no education or experience? This should be interesting, we get to witness this family in their prime. Can bring Sugarhill back to the top? Its been a number of years and the music industry has changed.
1st Family Of Hip Hop premieres on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 9pm on Bravo.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Recap!! So far this season, Porsha has been too extra, just way over the top and it isn’t cute. She has fame and that fame has gotten to that pea brain of hers and has affected her where she has such a bad attitude.
It seems like Porsha doesn’t treat her sister Lauren with a lot of respect but that may not be the case, we only see snippets of the show and production edits what they want the viewers to see. However, the way she treats Lauren has some truth in it, Lauren doesn’t feel appreciated and she lets Porsha know how she feels.
Porsha wants to open a hair salon using her name only but the chick knows nothing about running a hair salon. Just because her hair business is going great doesn’t mean she can open a hair salon and everything would be peaches and cream just because her name is Porsha. Lauren wanted to keep the salon small, why? I’m not sure but Porsha doesn’t want a small salon, she wants a big salon but again she has no experience in running a hair salon. Isn’t this the same girl who believed the underground railroad was an actual train?
Porsha and Lauren met with their business consultant and their real estate agent and when they were asked basic questions about the hair salon, the both of them were dumber than a box of rocks. Porsha suggested bringing in a hair salon consultant to advise them on the in and outs of running a salon and they could go from there. When their meeting ended, Lauren felt embarrassed because Porsha continues to throw that fact that this is her business but Lauren says she invested in her company so how is it just her business? The two sisters went back and forth with each other and it didn’t end good, Porsha said they should split up and Lauren stormed out calling her sister a B$TCH!!!
Gregg, Nene husband hasn’t been feeling that well, he felt that he needed to go to the hospital due to chest pains. He was admitted to the hospital for chest pains, Nene says Gregg has been complaining of chest pains for a minute but she believes its because his father had heart issues so maybe this is just a false alarm but she needed to get him to the hospital in case this was a real emergency. He didn’t have a heart attack but he may need minor surgery but any surgery is not minor to me and this is heart. We pray that Gregg is just fine, he is about the only sensible and sane person on the show.
That old Sheree is back, that “who gon check me boo,” that one, she don’t play about her money and when she hires someone to do a job, she expects that job to be 250% right, she is correct and I ain’t mad at her. Sheree is always beefing with somebody but she doesn’t take any sh$t off anyone. She threw her mom a 70’s theme birthday party because she was turning 70 years old and she looked great. It really was a cute idea but 4 hours before the party was supposed to start, Tiffanie her party planner texted her and told her that she was not showing up because she felt tension with Sheree. Tiffanie was supposed to be at Chateau Sheree setting up for the party but Sheree and her oldest daughter did it all, there was no way that Sheree was going to be embarrassed or disappoint her mother and they actually pulled it of. HELL, Sheree doesn’t need to hire a party planner, this could be a new opportunity for her.
Everyone showed up in their 70’s outfits and they all looked great. They seemed to all be having a great time and the smile on Sheree’s mom’s face said everything. Nene met up with Cynthia and Kenya at her house so they could all attend to the party together and we all know Mrs. Nene Leakes, she was snooping and she went into a walk in closet where she noticed men clothing hanging up but not many clothes were hanging up, plus they still had the tags on them. Kenya needs to stop with this foolishness, that B$TCH ain’t married. How many times did she call her alleged husband and spoke to his voice mail on just this episode? Too many to count, she looks real dumb but the truth will reveal itself sooner rather than later.
The next day Gregg called from the hospital to inform Nene that the time for his procedure had been changed and she was just on her way to the hospital. Gregg did seem a little worried, he wanted to wait for her but the doctors needed to check to see if his heart had any blockage, Nene just told him she’s about ten minutes away and go ahead and get the procedure done and she would arrive shortly.
She was now worried, the look on her face said it all, she wondered what would happen if Gregg never made it home. Wow, just keep the faith and we are praying.
Joseline Comes For Cardi B
Former Love and Hip Hop reality star Atlanta Joseline Hernandez is jealous again over another female and this time its Cardi B. Why is everyone trying to come for this girl? She’s a hustler, she never tryies to tear another woman down unless they come for her.
Joseline is just mad because her whack a$$ career didn’t take off and when she quit Love and Hip Hop she thought jobs were just going to come to her because she’s Joseline but her actions is why she’s in the position she is in now.
A few months ago, Stevie J mentioned that Joseline was mad at Cardi B’s post that said, “Love and Hip Hop success.” Joseline is a hater, she was never a “real star,” Stevie put her on a pedestal and made her believe she was a huge star when she wasn’t. Stevie gassed her up where she was believing her career was taking off but her career is in the dumps and she isn’t with Stevie anymore, so naturally she would be hating over Cardi B’s success.
So now Joseline comes for Cardi by making a diss song, she is petty as f$ck and she’s pissed because Cardi is successful and a household name while her career is non existent and she is now a mother and that’s what she needs to be.
The record is called, “Hate Me Now. ” Really? Like Cardi gives f$ck about a whack a$$ song from Joseline that will only be heard on Youtube.
Joseline’s Instagram post:
“Y’all ready for tomorrow #hatemenow #JOSAVELI 😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌#exposingyouhoes I think ima drop a snippet 2night 👀”
“…drag a Bronx b-tch yea I said it…bloody my azz….you holler blood who the hell cosigned this HO.” Excuse you??
That right there tells you how jealous Joseline is about Cardi B. Can we all just get along, stop the hate, DAMN! Be happy for Cardi, she has worked so hard to get where she is today. From a stripper, to a reality show and now a rapper, she earned her success, never give up on your dreams.
