Stepin Fetchit sounding a lot like a rapper. Check out how he uses the phrase "Sock it to me" (which was made popular in the late 60's by Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In). This is a clip from 1945's "Big Timers". The All American Girl Band is also featured.
Stepin Fetchit (born Lincoln Perry), the first black actor to become a millionaire (although he declared bankruptcy in 1947, two years after this particular film was released). He remains one of the most controversial actors in American history to this day.
'When all the Negroes was bleaching their skin, conking their hair and trying to be white, I was sayin' black was beautiful. ME.' -Lincoln Perry
