Trap music is a music genre that originated in the early 2000s from Southern hip hop and crunk in the Southern United States. It is typified by its lyrical content and trademark sound, which incorporates 808 sub-bass kick drums, double-time, triple-time and other faster time division hi-hats, layered synthesizers, and "cinematic" strings.

Person 1: Hey man how come these beats don't have any lyrics?? They are too good to not have lyrics!
Person 2: That's the purpose of Trap. It is more focused around beat production for the sake of good sound instead of being covered by someone's voice.
Person 1: I don't get it.
Person 2: Go with me to a trap festival and you'll understand.
A phrase that came about in 2012 when Trap (music genre) started incorporating it into hit trap songs. Real Trap Sh*t is used by people who are very familiar with the genre and have learned to distinguish between real trap and mainstream commercial beats.

RTS is an initialism for Real Trap Sh*t. It is used as a hashtag, #RTS, when describing a track that is significantly more crunk than modern day hip-hop beats. It is also used to make the distinction in separating really good trap tracks from generic and poorly produced trap tracks.
These young money instrumentals aren't cutting it. Time for some #RTS.
