Blondie's single Rapture was not the first rap song recorded. Blondie's single rapture came out in 1981. Both, Sugar Hill Gang's Rappers Delight and Sequence's Funk You Right On Up both came out in 1979. Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five came out in 1980. By the way, all of these predated Blondie's Rapture. Yes, these are all black rappers. They were all black writers. I have nothing against Debbie Harry and Blondie. In fact I am a fan of Blondie. The group Blondie had put out a few songs that I liked. Debbie Harry and Blondie were and still are a very talented music group. I just had to correct you on your facts. Also rapping was happening in New York at Night clubs, block parties, and house parties as early as the mid 1970s by black rappers prior to any rap recordings. This also predates Blondie's 1981 Rapture. Regarding your comments about what Black men in America are credited for. I genuinely feel sorry for you. Why you ask? Because you actually believe what you are saying. It's just sad.
