Sugar Hill In Showdown With Grandmaster

A 12-track "battle" CD pitting old-school hip-hop masters Sugar Hill Gang against Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five will be released Feb. 2. The album will seek to re-create early-'80s-style hip-hop rhyming duels by juxtaposing such Sugar Hill hits as "Rapper's Delight" with classic Grandmaster Flash tracks such as "The Message." Rappers Ice-T and Public Enemy's Chuck D will provide between-song commentary.
