Sprechstimme is Caucasian Rap

Johannah King-Sluztky, citing Schoenberg and Weill, sort of argues that Sprechstimme is white people rap:

Rap-talk-singing is as white as it gets, but it doesn't have to ironize or foil blackness. White people rap-talk-singing pre-dates hip hop by seventy years, with roots in German opera and melodrama. The proper name for rap-talk-singing is sprechstimme, sometimes used interchangeably with sprechgesang, the latter of which is a little more melodic.
