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."

bullshit marketing scheme that suburban middle-school fags think is real

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
There is no such thing as gangsta rap.

An utterly ridiculous form of music made by complete morons…The only themes it can draw on are always of the lowest common denominator… In many ways it’s actually really conservative, bigoted and right wing…Also it can bear some (though not all) responsibility for the continual socio/economic failures of black urban youth in the USA and the UK…
Gangsta rap innit blud

A subgenre of rap music where the lyrics focus mainly on organised crime, prostitutes (referred to in gangsta rap as "hoes"), drugs and life in the slums of the United states.

a form of rap made famous by former gang members and convicted felons. lyrics involve raping white bitches slappin nigga hoes, drinkin ma juice? shooting rival gang members and rival record c.e.o. selling crack and playin hoops. terminology involves bitches(women) nigga(a friend) crib(house)ride(car)deala(corporate affairs manager) the average gangsta rapper makes so much money from one single they could buy a small country. all videos must have by law at least 80 women at a slo-mo party the main gangsta must be seated in a white vest with a gold tipped walking stick drinking champange and holding keys to a fleet of mercedes cars. but genuine gangsta rap should not be confused with trash rap such as eminem who is as street as an emo with a library book. a good cheap way for white wanabees to emulate such stars as eminem and 50 cent on the cheap, is to put a sticking plaster on their face wear nba gear break your ankle so you have a nice limp and stick spinach between your teeth which you can suck on for that genuine teeth suckie noise.

Gangsta Rap(ping)-(noun, verb): A subgenre of Hip-Hop music depicting the life of violent inner-city youths, marked by large scale profanity, sex, homophobia, racism, promiscuity, misogyny, rape, street gangs, drive-by shootings, vandalism, thievery, drug dealing, alcohol abuse, substance abuse and materialism. The genre was pioneered in the mid-1980s by gangsta rappers such as Schoolly D and Ice-T, and was popularized in the later part of the 1980s by groups like N.W.A. Gangsta rap became the most commercially lucrative subgenre of hip hop
Yo, this gangsta rap music by Ice-T is really bumpin'!

Gangsta rap is the outcome of white corporations taking over a type of music in order to make money by commercialize sex, violence, and misogyny as a thing that only "black" or Hispanics do while caucasian people do the same exact things.

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.
Gangsta rap is racist. Why do they even play that on the radio?

Forget gangsta rap, I only listen to old school rap and underground rap.
