The term "Hip Hop" appears here in the lyrics of "Monkey Workout" in clear refutation of the Wikipedia article that claims it was coined in 1978 by Keith Wiggins. This is no surprise, however, given the overall racist tenor of the article which claims Hip-Hop "is a Black subcultural movement that originated solely among African American youth during the late 1970s..." Not only were many Latin-Americans originally involved, but even the original Rocksteady Crew had a 'white' member, 'Mr. Freeze.' http://www.oldschoolhiphop.com/artists/bboys/rocksteadycrew.htm
