What is Rapping?
Rapping has several different strands, but the main ones are rhyming, spitting, emceeing (also known as MCing - the MC is originally from "Master of Ceremonies', or toast master). Today it's a form of speech delivery or presentation, usually over a musical background, or perhaps over rythmic percussion (drumming).
The vocal delivery often includes rhyme and street invarioably lots of vernacular", which is usually chanted in a variety of ways
The components of rap are (a) the content - the actual owrds that are being spoken, (b) the "flow" (rhythm, rhyme), and (c) the "delivery" which might vary as cadence or tone).
Although a lot of rap comprises the delivery of couplets with rhyming, rap differs from spoken-word poetry in that rap is usually performed in time to an instrumental track and with care to match or fit with the music. Rap sits somewhere in the middle of oarting, singinging, poetry and presentation.
Hip Hop Music
Rap is often associated with and indeed, is one of the main compnents of hip-hop music, but the origins of rap predate hip-hop culture. Rap has been used by 'jive -talking' disc jockeys, especially in presentation of upbeat black music, since the 1950s. Jamaican toasters area variation who MCed blues parties.
Rap was first heard in pop music in the late 1980s - New York punk band BLONDIE featured Debbie Harry, who was already an accomplished rapper. They even released a song which helped rap get into the mainstream RAPTURE. The earliest known use of rapping is the West African griot tradition, in which "oral historians" often known as "praise-singers" would spread news and old stories as sales techniques or advertising.
