Somaya Reece And Lady Luck Featured On Bravo Series “First Family Of Hip Hop”
Love sweet love! Looks like Somaya Reece and her rapper boo thang Lady Luck are still going strong.
The ladies have been extremely active on social media and when they haven’t been sharing their love for each other and their business endeavors they’ve been posting about their upcoming roles on Bravo’s new show “First Family Of Hip Hop.”
Hit the flip for more on that!
Before there was Roc-A-Fella or Bad Boy Records, there was the hip hop record label that launched a music movement: Sugarhill Records. Started in 1979, the record label was at the forefront of rap thanks to artists like The Sugarhill Gang, who recorded the first Top 40 hip hop single, “Rapper’s Delight.” The label also released other recognizable songs like Grandmaster Flash’s “White Lines.” But these days, the company doesn’t have the same industry cred, and the new generation of the Robinson family is all vying for power. You’ll get to go inside that power struggle on Bravo’s newest series, First Family of Hip Hop.
The show will take a look at how label founder Sylvia Robinson’s son, Leland Robinson, Sr., and his relatives (Darnell Robinson, Rhondo Robinson, Jr., Antonio Jordan, Lady Luck, Somaya Reece, Eseni Ellington, Sasha Robinson, Kasin Robinson and Leland Robinson, Jr.) are butting heads about the future of the label. “All of my kids have ideas for the future of Sugarhill,” Leland says, “but none of them have showed me that they can really run this empire.”
However, there is one who thinks she deserves the crown: LeA Robinson. “Only one of us can be in charge,” she said. “Sugarhill was started by a woman, it’s destined to be run by a woman again.”
First Family of Hip Hop premieres Sunday, January 15 at 9/8c.
