A genre a music that glorifies murder, drug use, robbery, abuse of women, and gang life, to name a few things. Not to mention, rappers cannot sing. Their voices make Jesus cry. The fact that people who listen to this genre have been proven to be more violent and more likely to use drugs, and all these worthless rappers haven't been dragged to the edge of a cliff and thrown off is beyond me. Urban black youth don't have any other role models other than these stupid fucks to look up to. And you wonder why the black youth today are in such a shitty state. If you want proof of why this genre is horrid, read any of the definitions in favor of it. "YEA SUN MEH N' MUH NIGGAZ B LISNIN 2 DIZ SHIZ WEN WE GO KILLN N GANGBANGN N SHIZZ IT B OFF DA HOOK SON." Worthless.
50 Cent, an "artist" of the gangsta rap genre, got shot 9 times. Too bad none of them were fatal.
Gangsta rap was formed...i think it was '87 maybe earlier by N.w.A., the niggas wit attitude. people often get rap and gantsa rap confused when they say all rap glorifies rape, murder, women as sex objects, guns, etc...however when you hear these lyrics you are listening to gantsta rap, not just normal rap. gangsta rap is credited as the reason why hip hop music is so controversial. lately, gangsta rap has become much more tame (although it is still pretty hardcore, look at DMX) then the days of NWA.
If you hate hip hop and think it is all about bad shit, look at some other rappers that are not in gangsta rap, for example chamillionaire, paul wall, mos def, etc
Subgenre of rap
which became very popular in the late 80s and early 90s due to popularity of performers like Ice T and N.W.A. Originally was used to describe harsh realities of life for a modern black male living in poor areas of US. Later, however, the genre expanded and included downright vile messages of violence and hatred against white people, females and so-called "haters" (people who dislike the genre or particular performer).
-Sense that some of performers suffer from severe severe mental retardation (see Nelly
, Ja Rule
, 50 Cent
, Snoop Dog
, Cash Money Records roster)
-Mumbling (in some cases) see Lloyd Banks
-Heavy use of profanities - in particular, words like "hoe" or "bitch" (female), "nigga" (friendly black male or female) and to lesser extent "cracker"/"white devil" (applied to white males primarily)
-Heavy use of words "aha" and "what?" in the background.
-Poetic lines similar to the ones below
"Well nigga lets get one thing clear, I don't leave the block without my glock.
Is it because i'm standing with your bitch? Or got all these stones on my wrists?
Don't think you're leavin' here with this. ...
The worst sub-genre of rap there is. It condones violence, use of recreational drugs, racism and other prejudices, objectification of women, and hatred, just to name a few things. What's worse is that because most mainstream rap is gangsta rap, many people seem to think that it's the epitome of rap and that it reflects the entire genre. Because of these overgeneralizations, many people miss out on the great music that is alternative rap
. Gangsta rappers set a bad example for young and impressionable black kids everywhere. They don't even realize how negatively influencial their "music" is. Gangsta rap- not music, but a desecration of the respectable genre of rap.
50 Cent and Mike Jones are both gangsta rappers. However, they are niether gangstas nor rappers.
An oxymoron. The #1 rule of being a gangsta is to keep you law breakings quite, but #1 rule of being a rapper is to tell everyone about what you did.
Gangsta 1: Im such a gangsta rapper! I just shot that dude and now I'm gonna tell the whole world.
Gangsta 2: You are a dumb mother fucker.
1)A hypocritical musical genre in which its authors glorify violence, drug dealing, murder, and sex. When the author's are asked about it's influence over the youth they commonly respond by saying "I'm not glorifying im just telling what I've seen growing up"..... However when you listen closely in the music 9 outta 10 times this is not the case.
2)The reason alot of these young nigga's is dyin.
3) A perversion of true Hip-Hop.
4) A contributory factor in the genocide of African American's in which greedy mogul's such as Jay-Z, Puffy, 50 cent etc.. know, yet they don't care cause it sales.
5) Just another reason for white folks to call black folks ignorant.
1)Yo son word on the street is the number one cause of death for black youth is murder, but I aint hearin that cause I got my headphones on listening to my mentors in this gangsta rap song.
2)Racist: "We don't gotta hang'm no more all you gotta do is lettem play dat der gangsta rap and letem kill themselves."
Gangsta Rap(noun)- a sub-genre of rap which is an evolved form of Hip-Hop whos agressive lyrics express a violent attitued that typically glorifies violence and drugs.
Gangsta Rap sadly and ironically competes against the original form of Rap which is a branch of Hip-Hop which was/is aimed towards seizing gang violence.
White man's favorite type of music because its the sound of an entire race of people losing all self respect they ever had.
A genre of rap that sells out and stereotypes an entire race of people, and rap in general. White people like it because it "raps" about gangs, sex, and drugs, something that middle class America doesn't experience in general. Also, because of gangsta rap, other less violent-tone versions of rap are underappriciated and stereotyped.
Non-White Person: Why you so happy about 50 Cent's new "hit"?
White Guy (Bobbin his head): 'Cause gangsta rap is the sound of MAlcom X and MLR Jr. rolling in their graves!! Biatch!!!
