RIP Sylvia

I had NO IDEA that Sylvia Robinson, the awesome lady who co-sang one of my favorite oldies songs, Love is Strange (Mickey and Sylvia), was also considered the "Mother of Hip Hop" due to her involvement with Sugar Hill Records... she was the founder (!!!) and also produced Rapper's Delight and The Message!! I also didn't know she was the same Sylvia who did Pillow Talk. Sadly, she died of congestive heart failure on Thursday night. RIP girl!!
