"Superrappin'" (Enjoy , 1979) is a song by Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five.

In the 1970s, Robinson produced some of the first hip-hop music records for his "Enjoy" label and had considerable influence and success in that genre through the mid-1980s. He achieved another success in 1979, when he recorded Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five's first record, "Superrappin'", an innovative record which was very influential in hip-hop's early years. A local hit among New York area hip-hop fans, the music industry, however, was not ready for the new sound, and the record failed to hit nationwide.

The book Last Night a DJ Saved My Life calls "Superrappin'," "a funky rip-off of "Seven Minutes Of Funk" by Tyrone Thomas & the Whole Darn Family."
