I just need to put something on the record, what? I was disappointed to see a poorly-researched article in today's Guardian suggesting that Mr B, the Gentleman Rhymer, is the inventor of the art form known as Chap Hop. One cannot bring into question Mr B's contribution to the form - it has been superlative. He is taking it into the mainstream - and good for him. I believe he did indeed coin the phrase 'Chap Hop.' But the idea that he is the first aristocratic rapper is plain wrong. There was one that pre-dated him by several years. He used to trawl the comedy circuit in the late 1990s, was described as 'viciously inventive' by the Guardian and 'very impressive and very witty' by The Times, and even won some of the new act awards. I know this for a fact, because it was me. Here is the visual evidence of yours truly in his pin-stripes.
