Thought I'd drop this little contemporary gem in here:

Love that fusion of jazz and hip hop.

The Tiny Desk Concert series is great! Thanks for sharing this. I don't know how, but I kinda forgot about it. :oops:

Folks, even if you're not into hip hop, check out the series. It spans a few different genres including indie rock and country. Good stuff.

Such an insane amount of great shows! As you say, in all genres too. Many, many great hip hop acts for sure, and a nice mix of old heroes and new favourites. I mean... Wu-Tang, The Roots, Rakim, GZA, Primo, Masta Ace and many more on the side of heroes...  :o

Interesting to see hip hop spreading to other cultures:

Sorry for not posting this sooner. It is the Beastie Boys' last show back in 2009 and it is only available to watch this weekend. It's hard to believe MCA died just 3 years later. F*** cancer. RIP

Was Bob Dylan the first rapper with Subterranean Homesick Blues on Positively 4th Street? :)
https://www.amazon.com/Positively-4th-Street-Single-Version/dp/B00137O45Q/ref=sr_1_5?crid=1055975V2PO92&dchild=1&keywords=positively+4th+street+bob+dylan&qid=1600479718&sprefix=positively+4%2Caps%2C223&sr=8-5

Bob adopted the Talking Blues style of Woody Guthry and Phil Ochs for many of his protest songs.  While not Rap per se he was definitely rapping.  Another rap type song would be New Speedway Boggie by the Grateful Dead.  The opening line is, "Please don't dominate the rap Jack, if you got nothin new to say".
