Ministry of Sound presents Rapper’s Delight. 3 CDs dedicated solely to paying homage to music that has made History. This all-encompassing collection includes music from current heavyweights of Rap who relentlessly top the charts and sell out arenas, featured side by side with the artists who paved the way for them and continue to be an ever present force in the Music Industry.
Aptly titled after The Sugarhill Gang’s renowned "Rapper’s Delight", which has been widely considered to be the song which bought hip hop into the mainstream, laying the first foundations for this monster of a genre. Another hugely important Rap supergroup to appear on this release are N.W.A. An exciting edition ahead of the release of their biopic "Straight Outta Compton" which is set to be one of the biggest films of the year.
Other artists to feature on this album are heroes of the scene Jay- Z, 50 Cent, Wu Tang Clan, D12, OutKast, Missy Elliott, Nas, Drake and the legend that was Notorious B.I.G, whose music remains heavily sampled, allowing him to remain where he belongs in the centre of the Music Industry. Of course we couldn’t forget to include our home-grown heroes. Grime artists Dizzee Rascal and Giggs also feature, showing one of the other faces of Rap music.
This album is the ultimate collection of Rap music where no stone has been left unturned and no rapper left unaccounted for. It is an education and an appreciation of some of the greatest music ever made. This is Rapper’s Delight.
