    I think it was Big Bad John by Jimmy Dean. Thats right, Jimmy dean the sausage dude. The lyrics for that song fits right into the Gangstas Paradise.

    I agree that Rapper's Delight is generally considered the beginning of the genre. Anyone hear ever heard the complete track? I've heard it's rather long.

    Big Bad John was done in the late 50's/early 60's. It may not have been called rap then, but it was definitely rap.

    I'd have to agree with Rapper's Delight, it was the very original

    First Rap Song

    Would you believe the first time rap was ever done was on a
    series of the 3 stooges...???
    They were doing a skit where they were selling fish and they
    did a rap melody to do so.. Actually they did really good.
