Rap: It's from Scotland

No, actually it isn't, but Professor Ferenc Szasz suggests that old Caledonian Flyting battles are a little bit like rap battles.

Szasz suggests there is "a clear link" between the two:

According to the theory, Scottish slave owners took the tradition with them to the United States, where it was adopted and developed by slaves, emerging many years later as rap.

He has uncovered a previously overlooked version of Tupac, Where's Your Troosers by Puff Daddy which he insists proves his point.

I was going to finish this by suggesting that it's only at Christmas that the Sunday Telegraph would stoop to publishing this sort of made-up guff, but I'm not confident that's the case any more.

Yes because rap battles aren't just... oh I don't know... public arguments? That's not something that's been around since that first day when a caveman said to another caveman (in the common vernacular of the day) "By jove old chap wouldn't it be awfully clever if you were to move from the immediate vicinity of this cave dwelling as it is mine" to which the other replied "Oh no it isn't". No it was us Scots who invented that. For our next trick we'll prove how we also invented fire.
