Do you really envision me as the sort of person who would think the first rapper came out in the late 80s?
I have been working a lot recently

I still say Bob Dylan made the world's first rap song.

And before Gil-Scott Heron, what about the Last Poets?

I assume he's talking about "Subterranean Homesick Blues".

I never thought about it like that. He is essentially rapping in the song, but was he the first to use that kind of vocal style?

I doubt it. I'm sure you could find examples of beat poets, jazz singers and blues singers doing similar things earlier if you looked into it a bit.

I think it was Sugarhill Gang. I heard them late 70s when I was in elementary school. Their song was Rapper's Delight

That's an obvious choice if we're talking first hip hop record... But the question is who was the first rapper.
