    Question Was the First Rapper White?

    Was the First Rapper White?

    Posted by Karen De Coster at November 14, 2004 07:39 PM

    Every year, at about this time, I begin to pop in my hand-mixed, homemade Christmas CDs and mini-discs, and every time, I am reminded of what I think to be the first rap song ever recorded. Art Carney, of Honeymooners fame, recorded what I believe to be the world's first rap song in 1954: his version of Twas the Night before Christmas. In this song he definitely "raps," and he surely doesn't sound white. You can hear a sample here. At the same time, in 1954, he recorded Santa and the Doodle-Li-Boop, which charted at #24, while Twas the Night Before Christmas remained rather obscure.

    Traditionally, the rap music industry recognizes its beginning at sometime about 1979, when that kind of music was actually good.

    I thought Blondie (Deborah Harry) was the first rapper.

    Although it is controversial whether a white person "invented" rapping, there is no doubt that the negro culture has adopted this genre of "music" as their own.
