      I taught at a mostly black high school. I played this for my guys one day. They liked it very much.
      I was kicked out of music class for passing notes...

        this where i think rap started.

        still trying to think of a joni song that might have pre-dated this.

        but music has always had this type, at least in the US.
        like this.



        it moved from americana to urban? i don't like rap, old snoopdog is ok. it has music.
        well, it IS a gen-u-ine copy!

          Rap has always sounded like nursery rhymes with profane words . So since medieval times.

            As far as the masses (whitey) knowing the term with a musical example tied to it...that Sugar Hill Gang tune "RAPPER'S" DELIGHT. I'm sure it took a few kids a while before they realized it wasnt WRAPPER.S DELIGHT.

            It was not only a new sound to a lot of us back then, including my black friends, but it was also a new term/musical name.

            I remember well when it came out, I was a senior in HS an for out "class night" the white kids performed The Time Warp" and the black kids performed Rappers Delight.

                I'm glad we established that white people did indeed originate rap.

                  Well, if black people did it wouldve been exploited by zep and the stones. Back in the day I dont recall them doing any rap, therefore blacks couldnt have created it.

                      I think you mean Lou Reed while taking a walk on the wild side.

                        Oh, he may have helped but Brian was the driving force.

                          I remember hearing rap for the first time in the mid '70's on the streets.
                          Growing up in The Bronx you couldn't escape it.Then the whole break dancing happened in the '80s.
                          It was a good time to bug out from The Bronx.
                          There's nothing to see here.Move along.

                                I remember a review of Much Ado About Nothing and this bit of music. Reviewer asked "Elizabethan Rap?".
                                So maybe Shakespeare invented rap. But maybe he made a trip to Africa and ripped them off like Picasso?
