in reality, gangsta rappers either talk about
a) activity that gang members often do but doesn't require being a gang member to do
b) being a member of a gang, when it's obvious that if they actually did anything or were anybody of any importance in a gang, they would actually be in jail
c) complete bullshit to sell records
basically, rappers are so much more rapper tahn gangster, it doesn't matter
Guy 2: Oh that...I just took a gangsta rap...
This new genre derived from hip hop and rap in the late 80's and 90's. At first, rap was made for minorities to express their difficulties of a hypocritical society. They used rap as away to increase attention on the sufferings that minorities faced everyday but as rap became more and more famous corporations began to take over rap slowly and instead of rapping about "Adidas" and on how the streets of the city are driving minorities 'to the edge" rap soon began a way to show how African-Americans are "thugs" that are violent, sexist, and constant drug users when in reality they are just people like everyone else.
Forget gangsta rap, I only listen to old school rap and underground rap.
