Langston Hughes: The First Rapper?

Was just thinking about this, and was actually reading up on Langston Hughes (I’m a fan of the Harlem Renaissance era, feel their music back than would make great sampling), and I read some of his poems, and could see the rhythm in them that was reminiscent of modern day rapping.

Was Langston Hughes the first rapper before Hip-Hop?
