Proof That Country Is To Blame For Rap Music – Brian’s Blog [VIDEO]

Rap music has invaded country. We have the smash hit with Nelly joining FLA/GA Lineon the remix of “Cruise”. Colt Ford has a huge following for his country rap and Jason Aldean topped the charts with the rap/country smash “Dirt Road Anthem”. I have heard many traditionalists complain that THAT ain’t country. How quickly we seem to forget that country has been rapping for years.

I have included many examples of how country music was the first to bring the spoken word mixed with music into the world. Jerry Reed made a career of country rapping. Leroy Van Dyke’s “Auctioneer Song” may be the first rap ever. How about “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” or “A Boy Named Sue”? I have put together a few video’s that show that country and rap aren’t as far apart as you might think.
