This is a huge lost for Hip Hop one of the founding fathers of Hip Hop Big Bank Hank From The Sugar Hill Gang R.I.P.

"Big Bank Hank," whose real name was Henry Jackson, died early Tuesday in Englewood, New Jersey, according to David Mallie, who manages the two surviving Sugarhill Gang members. The New York native was 57.

It's a shame Sugar Hill Gang doesn't get its just do. Shady record label people rip them off in the early 80's and they have never gotten the money or the credit they deserve.
