Jim Morrison was called many things; a singer, songwriter, poet, and the conceptual father of rap and electronic music?  Well, you don't really hear him referred to as the father of rap and electronic music too often.  But, maybe you should!

During an interview in 1970, Jim Morrison correctly predicted the genres of rap / hip-hop and electronic music.

I doubt that he truly understood what these two genres of music would sound like.  But his understanding of music history throughout the 20th century lead him to a very solid prediction.  Jim would die the following year of an overdose.  (Probably after awaking from a vision of the future that included a Lil Wheezy song)
