"The origins of 'rap' go way back. Emmett Miller recorded this song in 1928. If you just want to hear the rhymes, skip to 1:32. I'm sure this isn't the earliest rap recording, but it's always fun to share it when people get into debates over what does or doesn't constitute 'rap.'"



Thoughts? Would you consider this an early form of rap?

Hmm. Not sure if I could consider that really rap, I mean I guess in the simplest form. I mean it's really really simple rhyming.

BTW, how come know one ever credits Teena Marie as the first white female rapper? Come on now, 1981 Square Biz? Lady T ripped it.
