#HipHopHallofFame Inducted Hip Hop's First Female Rap Group 'The Sequence'


Before Salt-N- Pepa, before MC Lyte, and before Roxanne Shante, there was The Sequence. Cheryl “The Pearl” Cook, Gwendolyn “Blondy” Chisolm, and Angela “Angie B” Brown (later to become Angie Stone) formed The Sequence, the first female rap group to sign to a major label and go gold. Their biggest hit “Funk You Up” (1979), had a huge impact on Hip Hop culture, influencing a generation of female MC’s, and many others like Dr. Dre, who sampled their voice for the hook of “Keep Their Heads Ringin’”.
