The Rickey Smiley Morning Show Disagrees with Fat Joe’s Comments About the Origin of Hip-Hop: African Americans Created Hip-Hop (VIDEO)


    The Rickey Smiley show disagrees with Fat Joe’s comments about the origin of hip-hop. Fat Joe has come under scrutiny for saying that hip-hop was created by Latinos, said Gary With Da Tea. Best known for his early 2000 tracks, Fat Joe, has been a staple in the music industry for decades

    Rickey Smiley wanted to know if the Latinos had a song that came out before “Rapper’s Delight.”  Da Brat said, “not that the world know.” The morning show discussed rap groups that could have put out the first record, such as Menudo or The Jets.

    “If you wanna go way back to the African villages when they was beating on them drums. I mean that was technically hip-hop even before hip-hop,” said the radio DJ.

    Da Brat said the first rapper was Millie Johnson because she would rap and curse you out on the same verse.

    Fat Joe said growing up in the Bronx in New York allowed him to witness different things about music, informed Gary. When hip-hop started, it was created by Latinos and blacks, half and half.  The father of three then spoke about how he got naysayers to disagree with him.

    Da Brat said she wanted the names and dates of the first Latino hip-hop artist because she thought she knew her history. The morning show host said she could understand if Fat Joe would have said Jewish people created hip-hop because they had a lot to do with it.

    The Rapper said she believes that African Americans created hip-hop. The morning show said Fat Joe should contact them to explain his comment further because they wanted to know more information.
