I think the reality of the answer to this question is there is no first. Rapping, like most things in music, is something that evolved its way into being, not something that sprang into existence fully formed.

Denny Blazin Hazen was ONE of the first lyrical MCs to bless the mic.

That song is by New Edition not The Jackson 5. And it's from 1983, four years after the first hit rap single was put out by The Sugarhill Gang.

Yeah, I was talking about Subterranean Homesick Blues. It's Dylan raging at the establishment with rapidfire delivery and a relatively intricate rhyming scheme. That's hip hop as fuck.

If you can find me something pre-dating Subterranean Homesick Blues that's as hip hop in delivery and aesthetic as Dylan's track, then I'll change my idea of what the world's first rap song was.
