I thought that rap music started in the early 80's. I know Rapper's Delight was the first rap song and that came out in 1979 right? After that, Kurtis Blow and Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five came on the scene and rap music started to make some noise. White america was scared of it at first and they didn't wanna sign any rappers but thank god for the independent record companies for taking a chance with rap music and signing some rappers. Fuck them faggot white owners of record companies who eventually decided to sign some rappers when they saw they could make some money from rap music.

I never heard of that guy. I've seen a few rap documentaries before and i keep hearing people say rap music started in the 70's but i find it hard to believe. Does anybody know the first rap song on record? I first heard rap when i was a kid in the early 80's. The first rap albums my parents bought me were Run DMC's King Of Rock and Whodini's Back In Black. I love that Whodini album. Lot of tight songs on that album such as Funky Beat, One Love, Growing Up, I'm A Ho, Echo Scratch, Last Night I Had A Long Talk With Myself, The Good Part. They fell off after that album LOL.

Rap/Hip-Hop had been going on from mid to late 70's in New York but not officially until 1979, when the first rap songs were put on wax. Kool Herc is historically recorded as rap music's first DJ. He was born in Jamaica but moved to NY and would hold "hip hop" parties throughout the Bronx in the 70's. The first recorded emcee is Coke La Rock. He would chant "Throw ya hands in the air, wave 'em from here to there" and "You rock and ya don't stop" as well as other popular phrases still used today. The first hip-hop radio show was Mr. Magic's Disco Showcase in NYC and began in 1979.

A little tidbit for fun: Mayor of New York City Edward Koch officially declared May 3rd, 1985 "Rap Music Day" due to hip-hop's positive impact in the community.

Wasn't Jamaican dancehall toasting also an early precursor to rap and early dub music a precursor to hip-hop beat sampling?

yes - from my understanding though Louis Armstrong was the first to spit heat on the mic when the break came in -
