Big Bank Hank from the Sugarhill Gang died yesterday, of complications from cancer.  He was only 57.  Of course, the Sugarhill Gang is legendary for their 1979 hit, "Rapper's Delight".

In a joint statement, Master Gee and Wonder Mike said, quote, "So sad to hear about our brother's passing.  The three of us created musical history together.  We will always remember traveling the world together and rocking the house.  Rest in peace, Big Bank."
