The Scottish invented rap battles

http://blog.inmusic.ca/.a/6a00e553c3644488330105369b3cdc970b-320pi (http://blog.inmusic.ca/inmusic/2008/12/the-scottish-invented-rap-battles.html#more) Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel aren't going to be too pleased about this.

Professor Ferenc Szasz, of the University of New Mexico is arguing rap battles were invented by the Scots, and not, as many would believe, by African Americans. The battles, in which two or more performers trade elaborate insults, derive from the ancient Caledonian art of "flyting" says Szaz.
The UK Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/3998862/Rap-music-originated-in-medieval-Scottish-pubs-claims-American-professor.html) says according to the theory, Scottish slave owners took the tradition with them to the United States, where it was adopted and developed by slaves, emerging many years later as rap.


The professor said, "The Scots have a lengthy tradition of flyting - intense verbal jousting, often laced with vulgarity, that is similar to the dozens that one finds among contemporary inner-city African-American youth.
"Both cultures accord high marks to satire. The skilled use of satire takes this verbal jousting to its ultimate level - one step short of a fist fight"
Apparently, the most famous surviving example of flyting comes from a 16th-century piece in which two rival poets hurl filthy rhyming insults at each other before the Court of King James IV.


The Telegraph says Professor Willie Ruff, of Yale University, agreed that Scottish slave owners had a profound impact on the development of African American music traditions.


Of course, if you know or are related to any Scots (Hi Mom!) you know they like to take cultural credit for just about everything. I think they also invented Chinese food and Greek philosophy.

It's all conjecture; no solid proof.

Why do whites like to claim black acheivements as their own?

i believe this is just more retarded race washing of retarded shit by retarded people so that other retards can acknowledge that scots judge eachother moreso by physical prowess ...unlike any other culture ever.


anyways, this guy is literally saying the because scots argued for recreation, like every single human being in history, they invented freestyle battles.

this person also has a limited understanding of hip hop culture in that he believe the vulgarity is definitive of freestyling and that rhyming vulgarity = battling.

Tru

Technically, Roxanne invented battling in the 1980's - hundreds of yrs after contact with any dress-wearing Scott.
