AllMusic Review by

Rapper's Delight & Other Old School Favorites presents ten classics from rap's golden age, including the title track by the Sugarhill Gang, Newcleus' "Jam on It," Sylvia's "It's Good to Be the Queen," and Trouble Funk's "Hey Fellas." Tracks from Grandmaster Melle Mel, the West Street Mob, Spoonie Gee, and Grandmaster Flash give the collection an undeniably solid track listing, but the short running time may make it more satisfying for casual hip-hop listeners than fans looking for an extensive collection of old school hits.
