I've heard from many older people that artists "rapped" on old songs decades ago. So jluke is not telling a story.
Rapping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Rapping can be traced back to its African roots. Centuries before hip hop music existed, the griots of West Africa were delivering stories rhythmically, over drums and sparse instrumentation. Such connections have been acknowledged by many modern artists, modern day "griots", spoken word artists, mainstream news sources, and academics.
Blues music, rooted in the work songs and spirituals of slavery and influenced greatly by West African musical traditions, was first played by blacks (and some whites) in the Mississippi Delta region of the United States around the time of the Emancipation Proclamation. Grammy-winning blues musician/historian Elijah Wald and others have argued that the blues were being rapped as early as the 1920s. Wald went so far as to call hip hop "the living blues."Jazz, which developed from the blues and other African-American and European musical traditions and originated around the beginning of the 20th century, has also influenced hip hop and has been cited as a precursor of hip hop. Not just jazz music and lyrics but also Jazz poetry. According to John Sobol, the jazz musician and poet who wrote Digitopia Blues, rap "bears a striking resemblance to the evolution of jazz both stylistically and formally."
Before anyone goes off and say, "that's wiki." They gave you links in addition to the article. The musical part of the hip hop is influenced by Jazz and Blues. Is all of it influenced, probably not. But the entire culture of hip hop is straight New York. We're just talking about parts of the musical elements.

OK, your right. Hip Hop wasn't influenced by no type of music, it just appeared out of nowhere in the 1970s in the Northeast.

I heard Marshan's came from the sky in the late seventies and taught the New York black and Hispanic youth to come and rule over the land using the ancient rhythms and their language to spread all over Earth.They left Afrika Bambaataa to rule over the hip hop kingdom and spread to their ways.

My god,no ,matter how many texts and references put before you,you sill want to act like Hip Hop has never used any other music at its beginning that describe what hip hop is,you.STILL you guys want to focus on Hip hop being created in NYC ,having absolutely NO influences from ANYWHERE.Where do you think funk came from?Oh... my rides outside were are gonna hang out on Venus
