For a brief moment with these old threads, I am pleased to see the old members posting... then I wonder where they went.

Others may have been first, but I think the Aerosmith/Run DMC remake was what literally broke the walls down between two genres and helped rap be more mainstream.

I'm not sure about first song- but probably something by DJ Kool Herc- generally known as the grandfather/creator of Hip-Hop.
Rappers Delight definitely was the first song that "sold out". But I doubt it was the first "rap" song.

Nobody has any idea which post you're replying to, but chances are, the person has not only graduated from high school since this thread was started, but is well through college, as well.

I strongly disagree you had Ice-T way before that and you also have Too $hort whos been rapping about selling drugs and pimping bitches sinces the early 80s. But before all that we had Rappers Delight.
