The Furious Five, Funky 4+1, Crash Crew

These old-school hip-hop artists on the Sugar Hill Records label were denied cashing in on their original rhymes from the early 1980s until AREC came on the scene.

Now, they are not only showcased by today's biggest stars sampling their work, but actually getting their due credit and compensation.

These artists opened AREC's doors to other hip-hop clients including Soul Sonic Force and Cold Crush Brothers. Now, we deal with matters of sampling and other such infringements on an almost daily basis.
