If anyone was stupid enough to suggest that Bob Dylan invented rap... they'd need their head seeing to... SHSB was clearly inspired by Chuck Berry

But back to the original topic. James Brown was an amazing giant of music and creativity and general awesomeness, who inspired genres and countless people who followed... and did it all with an amazing flair.

Nuff said.
