"Rapper's Delight" is a 1979 single by American hip hop trio The Sugarhill Gang; it was one of the first hip hop hit singles.

"Rapper's Delight" hit #36 on the U.S. pop charts, #4 on the U.S. R&B charts, and #3 on the UK singles chart. In 1979, it became the first hip-hop single to go gold.

The following year, the song was the anchor of the group's first album The Sugarhill Gang. In spite of a few more minor hits, The Sugarhill Gang quickly faded into obscurity.

It was the first Top 40 song to be available only as a 12-inch extended version—no 7", 45-RPM record was made.

The song inspired Blondie's 1980 hit, "Rapture", which is considered by some to be the second major hip hop hit after "Rapper’s Delight".
