Which artist were the 1st to record and publish a Rap Song or Album? As a person who loves the Hip Hop Culture and the music and the history of it, I find myself wondering if there's a true account of the history of Hip Hop in Buffalo. As I began to do research on this topic I reflected on those I remembered. I then used Google and YouTube to get a sense of which artist were recorded and documented in time. This is in no way a complete list of artist nor an intent to leave credit worthy artist out. Look at this as a rough outline of artist who have released on major labels and begin to recreate "The History of Rap and R&B in Buffalo".
