Please Bill... Don't use the words 'rap' and 'music' in the same sentence --
especially next to one another.  The two words are mutually exclusive.

Speaking of percussion, Mason Williams (remember him?) wrote a song in which

one of the verses went:

"knock, bang, beep beep, flick,
boom, chucky-yucky-yuck, whirr, tick-tick,
boing, buzz, honk-a, ding-ding,
rump-bump, rick-rack, ring-a-ling-a-ling!"

The preceding is an example of a linguistic formation known as 
"onomatopoeia" (look it up).

ps - Theoretically, one could provide rhythm for dancers merely by speaking.

I don't want to get into the phenomenon of RAP music but . . .
