Great documentary of exploitation! July 22 2013
By Curtis Fry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
There's nothing surprising here. The familiar story of artists who are drawn into a maze of deceit and exploitation only to find themselves on the outside looking in and badly in debt. The interesting twist is how individuals tried to market themselves in false names to the degree that they actually believed in the deceptions! Very well crafted and amazingly revealing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Two Legends Fighting For a Comeback June 16 2013
By Carol - Published on Amazon.com

I chose this rating because I thought the movie was excellent. I liked it because it gave a voice to the underdog and it highlighted points-of-view from the top dog. I recommend this movie for everyone who is interested in hip-hop history and music history in general.

All Recording Artists should see this DVD Oct. 24 2013
By Teecha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was hip to some of the things mentioned in the documentary, like musicians calling home needing cash because they hadn't gotten paid, but getting the full story straight from the headliners Master Gee and Wonder Mike of how they were treated and their struggle to regain their brand, their ability to make a living, their names...priceless!

Very informative July 28 2013
By Technician - Published on Amazon.com

I never knew Sugar Hill records was this devious. I grew up on this music and as a DJ during this era the Sugar Hill label had major respect. When we saw a new record in that blue sleeve with the trademark Sugar Hill signature, we would buy the records on site without even hearing them first. Wow...eye opening story.
Surprising and informative Oct. 27 2014
By Darryl K Stapleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Surprised by the behind the scenes fighting, deceit and corruption. Changed my opinion of Sylvia Robinson, I'll leave it at that. How can you appropriate someone else's work as your own just for the money? Those of us that know who the Sugarhill Gang were and are, know better. The judge in the case half-assed the decision and while they were able to recoup their individual names, they still got robbed.
