The New Jersey trio’s tune took what was a New York-centric music sensation—particularly in the Bronx and Harlem—and brought it to the masses, who had otherwise been listening to Billboard favorites like the Eagles, ABBA and Stevie Wonder. None of this would have happened, however, were it not for the work of New Jersey businesswoman Sylvia Robinson, who she set out to put hip hop on the map.
