The impressive life of hitmaker-turned-pioneering rap producer Sylvia Robinson is heading to the big screen.
Hollywood producer Paula Wagner has acquired the rights to Robinson's life story, and is developing a biopic to honour her legacy, according to Billboard.com.
The film will chronicle Robinson's career which began as a solo artist on the record label owned by her husband, Joe Robinson, which would eventually become the fabled Sugar Hill Records - the company behind the first rap hit, 1979's Rapper's Delight by the Sugar Hill Gang.
The iconic label also released records by Spoonie Gee, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious 5 and Melle Mel, who will serve as a consulting producer on the project.
In addition, Robinson's son, Joey Robinson, will serve as an executive producer.
Robinson died in 2011 after suffering from congestive heart failure.
