gangster rap is
a form of story telling, much like Quintin Tarrentino movies.
gangster rap is from the Westcoast of America in 1980s. With themes as;

*money
*sexual conquest
*crime
*brotherhood
*anger
*and life in the slums

gangster rap is sadly emulated by brats and kiddies, who need to grow a pair and grow out of it. Useally with funk/backbeat acompany.

A sub-genre of rap people seem to think represents the whole of the rap genre.
Person A: Oh man, I fucking hate rap. It's just about niggas and hoes!

Person B: Yes, If you minus the tons of other rap sub-genres out there, rap is nothing more than niggas and hoes.
