Today at a popular beach, a friend of mine had an intellectual brainstorm. He supports the idea that Homer was the first rapper ever to be.
Rapsody – RAPsody – RAP(=the rhythmic spoken delivery of rhymes, wordplay, and poetry, one of the elements of hip-hop music and culture)
“Ἰππους δ’ εἰς Ἰθάκην οὐκ ἄξομαι, ἀλλὰ σοὶ αὐτῷ ἐνθάδε λείψω ἄγαλμα” (Οδύσσεια). Sung in an aggressive tone, with heavy hip-hop beats layered underneath it. Imagine that!
