Rap as a genre began at block parties in New York City in the early 1970s. It has gotten better over the years with people in it like. Tupac snoop dogg and ice cube have made rapping better over the years. The first rap song was actually a commercial which is weird to think about. The people in 2020 made rapping better. These people are lil uzi vert king von xxtentaction, da baby, rich the kid, lil wayne and more .Who invented rap. DJ Kool Herc is widely credited by making the genre. His pirates that he went to go back in the days is where he got the idea, where he used his two record turntables to create loops, repeating the same beat over again, and making the instrumental portion of a song longer.
