For sure, in the 1990s the Last Poet, a Harlem-based trio of former jail convicts converted to Islam (led by Jalal Mansur Nuriddin), were using "spiel" (as rap was called in those days) over a jazz background: their political sermons inspired by Malcolm X used the arrangements of jazz producer Alan Douglas on The Last Poets (1970), which became a hit, and This is Madness (1971), and developed into "jazzoetry" on Chastisement (1972) and abstract free-jazz on At Last (1974). They even foreshadowed the fusion of rap and metal with their collaboration with Jimi Hendrix, Doriella du Fontaine (1970). (Translation by/ Tradotto da xxx)
