Badd Mann Dann Rapp: The guy loses a bar at about 1:30 and doesn't catch up until 2:55. On King Monkey Rapp, he does it again almost immediately, so gives up, dropping the rhythmic style mid-take for a more 'spoken word' style. Ha Ha. No retakes for *this* freak.

"Badd Mann Dann Rapp"... mmmh, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' "Stagger Lee" (from the Murder Ballads album) anyone?

It's much older than that, and Nick Cave would confirm -- it's a version of the "Ball of the Freaks", which has been around since the beginning of the 20th Century.

"King Monkey Rapp" is a version of the ancient oral-tradition rap "The Signifying Monkey." Rudy Ray Moore's kept it alive over the decades, and Schooly D did a version as "The Signifying Rapper" in the '80s.
