besides, it's closer to one-note singing than rapping.
by this logic i could add variform (the original one) or planet potion too because there is lengthy spoken-word speech synthesis. different stuff.

to 2c in on kusma suggestion, it is quite clear that in world domination there are several rhythmically spoken word verses (what i would qualify as rap) whereas in variform (the original one) or planet potion it is just a speech sample

besides in autotune world, isn't modern rapping in general close to one-note "singing" these days anyway :P

but with that logic, the greets in 1995 are also 'rap' ;)

if there was a proper dub/dancehall demotrack with ragga in it, it would also qualify as rap given the list's description, it's rhythmic and all... but still just isn't there :)

It's not a speech-synthesizer, it's a vocoder. And no, it's not singing; it's rapping (it's even credited to mc vocODD). Besides No Ambition is included, which is both more singing- and synthesizer-like, so it seems inconsistent.

'no ambition' is definitely not tuned, just heavily processed by a multitude of fx :)

Who was talking about Autotuning? That's not what's done in World Domination either, so it's completely unrelated.

Funny that vocoder-effected rap would not be allowed, seeing as that was a huge thing back when hip hop was still in its infancy (ever heard of "electro"?). Btw, shouldn't other effects (delay, reverb, etc) on the audio then also be disqualified? :)

just re-listened World Domination. to me this is still more sung than rapped, sorry.

if you still have strong feelings about this, make a "Rapping in demos - the good list". with blackjack. and hookers! ;)
