Biography

Rappers Delight Club is a rotating group of American elementary and middle school rappers from Silver Spring, Maryland. The group are most notable for their appearance in British funk/rock band The Go! Team’s sophomore album, Proof of Youth on the song “Universal Speech”.

The Rappers Delight Club (named after the Sugar Hill Gang song) is also the name of a learn-to-rap project taught at Glenallan Elementary School as part of an after-school program led by high school teacher David Goldberg. The group ranges in ages from five to twelve, who all write their own material and rap over music samples the group uses as their backbone for their raps. The group all rap about kid-related topics such as soccer or football, playing on the playground, shopping, etc.

The group has sampled music from Sufjan Stevens, Jens Lekman, The Go! Team and the theme music from Sesame Street’s segment Elmo’s World. They appeared in The Go! Team’s “Universal Speech” in 2007 for their second album, Proof of Youth, which they recorded their own remix later. In 2009, the group recorded “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up…Yet”, sampling singer-songwriter Tom Waits’ “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up” from his 1992 album Bone Machine.
