Rapping is an interesting combination of speech, prose, poetry and singing and adds a fun element to the performance of the entertainer. Rapping is such an integral ingredient of hip hop music and is also found in alternative rock and Kwaito music.

Rapping has its roots in Africa though today you can find rappers from different races performing all over the world in over a hundred languages!

Rappers began gaining in popularity during the 1970s and from there rapping’s become a staple of Hip Hop music.
