Okay, this is kind of Part 3 of the Angie Stone Discography, before she was Angie B. in Vertical Hold she was Angie B. of The Sequence signed to Sugar Hill Records. Funk You Up (1979), was the first rap record released by a female group and the second single released by Sugar Hill Records. I'm sure you know what the first was?

The other members of The Sequence were Cheryl Cook (Cheryl The Pearl), Gwendolyn Chisolm (Blondie), the group originated from Columbia, South Carolina as a group of high school cheerleaders. The group backed Spoonie Gee on the single Monster Jam (1980). Their single Funky Sound (Tear the Roof Off) (1981) was a remake of the single Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker) (1976) by Parliament. The groups other charting single was I Don't Need Your Love (Part One) (1982).

Angie Stone subsequently became a member of Vertical Hold and later a solo artist. We don't really know what happened to Cheryl and Gwendolyn but we're not waiting on a reunion. Enjoy!
