Features looped samples from b-boy funk classic The Champ by The Mohawks and new vocals sung to the tune of Rapture by Blondie - hence the writer credits for Palmer (of The Mohawks) and Stein and Harry (of Blondie). The subtitle is a play on words, combining Rapture with the title of early hiphop hit Rapper's Delight.

Rapture was a very significant track in the history of hiphop. Debbie Harry and Chris Stein of major band Blondie had bought graffiti art by Fab Five Freddy and visited the early Bronx hiphop scene with him where they saw Grandmaster Flash DJing. They later made Rapture featuring a section of spoken vocals which became the first track including rapping to reach number 1 in the US chart and therefore took rap music to a much wider audience. Chris Stein and Fab Five Freddy would go on to collaborate on the soundtrack of the classic hiphop movie Wild Style (which also included Rapture) and Grandmaster Flash used a segment of Rapture (with a namecheck to him) on his seminal 1981 turntable mix: The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel.
