Though he was a blues player, Bo Diddley contributed to the history of rapping. He did what people used to call "Signifying", a lost art form that pre-dated rap. One notable example of this that Bo Diddley did was the classic jam called "Say Man".Also, along with James Brown, Bo Diddley contributed to the birth of tha funk, which evolved into hip hop. He was the best, he will be missed.
