© Test Test, 1963
In 1963, before taking the crown from Sonny Liston, future World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Muhammad Ali was making headlines under his birth name, Cassius Clay. Already a media icon beloved by the nation's newscasters and talk show hosts, Cassius Clay was renowned for witty self-aggrandizing rhyming couplets which often foretold, with uncanny accuracy, the outcomes of future bouts. Clay's rhymes presaged modern rap music in form and content, skillfully combining an authentic sense of black pride with personal boasts and hilarious narratives. He recorded an album of his comedic riffs and rhymes in front of a live audience in 1963 and this photographer was on-hand to capture the Champ at the lectern as he took questions from the audience for inclusion on the record.
