Da boogie - we don't stop

The group – Cheryl "the Pearl" Cook, Gwendolyn "Blondy" Chisolm and Stone, the lead singer, then known as Angela "Angie B" Brown – recorded the hard-grooving Sugar Hill Records single "Funk You Up" in 1979, one of the very first hip-hop songs ever etched to vinyl. Though never officially certified, it was a nationwide smash, serving as the first rap hit performed by women, and only the third rap song to chart in the Top 50 of Billboard 's Hot Soul Singles. Thrust from a South Carolina housing project into the national spotlight, the Sequence were also America's first Southern rap group. And in a Seventies landscape where the few rap records that existed were chorus-free rhyme marathons, the Sequence seamlessly mixed singing and rapping, unwittingly paving a lane for artists like Lauryn Hill, Drake and Future.

Bang bang, the boogie to the boogie
Say up jump the boogie to the bang bang boogie
Let's rock, you don't stop
Rock the rhythm that'll make your body rock
Well so far you've heard my voice but I brought two friends along
And the next on the mic is my man Hank
C'mon, Hank, sing that song, check it out
