The Watts Prophets are a group of musicians and poets from Watts, California, United States. Like their contemporaries The Last Poets, the group combined elements of jazz music and spoken-word performance, making the trio one that is often seen as a forerunner of contemporary hip-hop music. Formed in 1967, the group comprised Richard Dedeaux, Father Amde Hamilton (born Anthony Hamilton), and Otis O'Solomon (also billed as Otis O'Solomon Smith) (O'Solomon removed the "Smith" from his name in the 1970s).
The Watts Prophets poets and World's longest performing "Rap" group from Watts, Los Angeles, California, were the first Rap artist to publish the common law trademark word "Rappin™" on an album, establishing the global title of the new American art form called "Rap". The rebellion on 1965 was a wake-up call. Using this art form, these individuals from the Watts community depicted the daily struggles of their lives during the time.
