Album of the Day
Jump On It!
Shortly after Rhino acquired the seminal Sugarhill Records catalog, it released a reunion album from the band that started it all – The Sugarhill Gang. The first new album from Big Bank Hank, Master G, and Wonder Mike in more than 15 years, JUMP ON IT! puts a new spin on the trio's genial old school rap with a set of songs aimed at kids. It's a remarkably natural fit - as the jump-rope cover art reminds, children's games and rhyming go hand-in-hand – and “The Vowels,” “Fireworks,” and “My Little Playmate” are as enjoyable as they are educational. The 10 tracks also include kid-friendly versions of hip-hop favorites like the group's classic “Rapper's Delight.” As JUMP ON IT! celebrates its 20th anniversary, its positive message and engaging performances still resonate with young and old.
