Neal McCoy's 'Hillbilly Rap' (1996)
This was a capital "n" Novelty even among country novelty songs. "Hillbilly Rap" kicked off, curiously enough, with a couple of calypso-lite lines from Harry Belafonte's "Banana Boat Song." From there, it veered into a Beastie Boys-ish, rock guitar riff, over which McCoy rapped "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" (stuttering "b-b-b-bubblin' crude," no less), before finally arriving at a direct quote of the Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight." When performing it live, McCoy still makes a big show of trading his cowboy hat for a sideways ball cap and doing an energetic caricature of hip-hop dance moves.
