RAP came from Hip-Hop, out of the Bronx in the mid 70's. It all came from DJ's, like Afrika Bambaataa, rapping over beats. It was huge in NY
before anyone else ever heard of it. I'm not surprised it was ripped off by 'some white guys' before it became well known. 'Some white guys'
have been ripping off black music since the 1940's.
I don't think those NY DJ's were listening to 'some white guys'.
'Rapper’s Delight', Sugar Hill Gang, I believe was one of the first RAP songs recorded, in 1978.
