I know that it's very, very late to post this, but I really remember Ms. Robinson for "Love is Strange". I guess I am partial to the guitar. May she rest in peace. Such a talented woman.Condolences to the family. She will not be forgotten.

Sylvia, you were the best. Pillow talk will always be my theme song. R.I.P. Sylvia---Jerolyn West

I just realized that the Mother of Hip-Hop was one and the same as one of my favorite childhood songs "Pillow Talk", even as a young boy listening to that song and seeing her album cover through my dad's collection-it was no secret that she was very sexy-sound & sight.

Thank you for seeing what many blow off as noise and or a fade to give it a voice to be carried to the masses, Love you for that, may your soul be blessed with paradise.

December 12, 2011
Just learned a few seconds ago that Sylvia died. I was talking to a legendary rapper and I was telling him that he should drop by Sylvias and rock a hip hop track and he said that Ms Robinson died. Wow, first Joe now Sylvia. She was always very respectful. I remember her saying: "You want some chicken" she loved to cook (or have the Jamaican home assistant, Cynthia, cook). RIP Sylvia. Your Bahamian hip hop friend. Spice

my deepest condolence to the family. I, too, remember Sylvia at the Blus Morocco,
Bronx,New York.I used to go there just to
see her and how beaautiful and graceful
she was.May she rest in peace.
November 18, 2011
This lady was indeed a class act. I remember "Pillow Talk" back in 1973 and also seeing her for the first time on Soul Train singing the song. I was 13yrs. old and fell in love with her and the lyrics of the song as it was suggestive but in good taste. I also remember exactly what I was doing the first time I heard "Rapper's Delight". I was coming from Howard University and heard some elementary kids singing along to the song on a wintery afternoon. I had never heard anything like it before and I can very vividly see those children singing, Soon we were all singing it. Until her death, I did not know her association to the song, label, or contribution to the introduction of Rap music as a marketed genre'. This was truly pioneering but this is the story of her contributions as she was also a female guitar player with a hit song from the 50's. I have been touched by the life of this woman and so have we all. My condolences to her family. We have lost a great performer, singer, writer, and producer.

I fell in love with Sylvia's satin voice the first time I heard it in 1973. After so many years I finally rediscovered her a few years ago. I would watch her Soul Train performance whenever I needed some lovin and the memories of my youth. I am terribly saddened to learn of her passing at this moment. To all her family, my deepest condolences. And let it be known, Sylvia's music brought so much love to this world and at a time we needed it most. God bless you Sylvia, your life was a blessing, may you rest in peace.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

Robinson love to sing the Blues she has spam through my mother generation to my generation With Sugar Hill Gang. A producer and song writer. Also a Pioneer in Rap the Sugar Hill Gang which
I know the young and the old love to sing that song.


This is what you call grass roots getting the pluse of the community
and highlight these Rappers producing their songs. Her Family should be proud of her a Tail Blazer. Let the family recevice peace from Almighty God and his son Jesus Christ. 2 COR: 2,3,

God gives all His children gifts and yours were in the music arena. Sylvia you did a superb job with singing, especially "Pillow Talk." I am sadden when we loose friends that we gained through music. You may not be with us now; however, you gave us a part of heaven. This is why I long for Jesus to return for us that love Him. You were beautiful in many ways and my heart would love for God's creation to stop suffering because of death. Thanks for the gifts you shared with the world. Thank you Father and thank you Sylvia. Someone that cares.

What an icon! I teach in a grade school and was talking with students about the first rappers. We are studying the business industry and I will be sure to let them know about Sylvia Robinson and their being the first to introduce rap music to the world. May her family be blessed and comforted. May she rest in peace and may the world remember.
