"Rap" is not a new idea that sprung up in the music industry in the 80's and 90's. In fact, it has been evolving for decades. Rap's roots can be traced to the following influences:

Cab Calloway.
Known for his signature "Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho" chant from "Minnie the Moocher". Starting back in the 1940's, Calloway used a call and response format with his audience, which is one of the foundations of rap. (You "The Blues Brothers")
