    Where do you think rap truly originated from?

    Rap is thought to have been born in the early 70s or late 60s as a form of protest-music on one hand and a way to have a bit of fun on the other. But I have heard that in certain cultures around the world, particularly Scotland and some parts of Africa, it was customary for warriors and disputing people to insult each other in a rhyming poetic fashion, AKA a rap battle since ancient times.
