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.

A form of traditionally African American speech accompanied by music which is often stolen from other more talented musicians. This form of music has recently been adopted by urbanite middle-class Caucasians who see the tough image portrayed by traditional black artists as best reflecting who they are under their pasty white skin. The music is often violent towards everyone and everything still drawing oxygen into their lungs.

Many words have been added to the English language thanks to Gangsta Rap. Words like "tha" or "da" instead of "the". Phrases like "buss a cap in dat ass" roughly translates into "I will shoot him."
Dis Rap is da bomb! Beatch!

Gangsta Rap a type of rap music sub genre thatis generally viewed as music that condones violence, sex, murder, crime, cursing, and more controversalmethods to entertain listeners. Yet, even though the majority of gangsta rap artists have beenusing those types of ways to express their feelings about the gangster lifestyle is a misconception that Gangsta Rap is primarily a definition of violence and adult themes. Eazy E has stated in a 1993 interview that it is up to the individual on how they do their music. There are many ways to do Gangsta Rap with out the use of controversal standards such as expressing the ghetto enviroment, rapping without cursing in a non unethical manner about being a gangster, and many other things that can contribute to the formation of Gangsta Rap it is not limited to just sex and violence
Mitchy Slick is a San Diego native of Lincoln Park in Bay Vista. Even though sometimes he does express his gangsta rap persona in a threatening manner . There are many songs on which he is civilized and talks about the gangster life with out such horrific description. In songs like "I Know" he raps about how people are still not getting record deals when they deserve it and how they are still in the streets looking for a way out and yet they still represent where they are from

As every intelligented person knows, msuic MUST consist of the following things
1: Talent (Rap has none)
2: Melodies and notes (Rap has none)
3: Instruments (Samplers and Turntables aren't instruments. Guitars, Pianos, Saxes, Drums Trumpets ect. are...and by the way, Rap has none)

Anyone who sings (is that singing?) gangsta rap is not even "gangsta". They'd be dead in a second if they went to 'da hood'.

straight from

"Gangsta rap developed in the late '80s. Evolving out of hardcore rap, gangsta rap had an edgy, noisy sound. Lyrically, it was just as abrasive, as the rappers spun profane, gritty tales about urban crime. Sometimes the lyrics were an accurate reflection of reality; other times, they were exaggerated comic book stories. Either way, it became the most commercially successful form of hip-hop in the late '80s and early '90s. In the process, gangsta rap caused considerable controversy, as conservative organizations tried to get the albums banned. Even when the activist groups forced certain bands off major labels, the groups continued to make their music uncensored."
I like gangsta rap (mainly Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, to me they're the cream of the crop) and I don't really see a problem with listening to it, and I'm white and I live in a suburb, as well as play an instrument (electric guitar). I also type correctly (as you can see), and I don't act "gangsta". sometimes I'll joke around with a friend and act like that, but for the most part people just take the genre WAY too seriously... people forget that music is about expression, whether it be positive or negative, and most people can't handle realities other than their own, which is why most middle-class conservatives have backlashed against it. it's just mainly for entertainment purposes, as with all forms of music, and sometimes for spreading awareness and opening people's eyes to the world around them. life isn't one big happy fucking party.

Check Yo Self, a fine gangsta rap tune by Ice Cube. Theres beat, rhyming and lyrics. Where the hell do you fine that in Rock and hard core metal. Wouldnt you rather listen to NWA rapping about the ghetto life instead of a hard core rock muthafucka screaming into a microphone. That is bullshit. This is the urban dictionary, since when do you see a homie listening to hard core rock in a pimped car... NEVER. Did Ice Cube ever scream in his life, my god. And all of you rock listeners voting thumbs down, why the fuck is you here? Rap has every thing a song needs. Yo, all you G's i know you will vote thumbs up on this on.
Yo, man did you see that Escalade with the loud gangsta rap song coming out of the speakers?
