Hip-Hop Pioneer Sylvia Robinson Dies at 75

Sylvia Robinson, the singer who rose to prominence as half of the duo Mickey & Sylvia before embarking on a solo career and earning the title the “Mother of Hip-Hop” as a co-founder of the seminal rap label Sugar Hill Records, passed away Thursday at the age of 75 after suffering congestive heart failure.

The New York City native first tasted success with ‘Love Is Strange,’ the Mickey & Sylvia single that topped the R&B charts — and was a top 20 pop hit — in 1956. In the early ’70s, billed simply as Sylvia, Robinson scored another number one R&B hit with ‘Pillow Talk.’
