This is a series of playlists produced by our @EDITORS_OFFICIAL. Including three sub-genres of rap: classic; gangsta and trap. These get updated on the app weekly so stay tuned to see any new additions or if your track made the list!
Classic hip-hop originates from the 80s, pushing through the 90s and early 2000s.
The flow is normally more simple and often has a slower tempo.
Trap music developed during the period of the 90s to 2000s, typically in the south of the US. It is usually recognised by
the beat involving hi-hats,
bass drum and synthesisers. Lyrically, themes involve typical violence, club life, drug culture and street life.
Gangsta rap evolved during the mid-80s from hardcore rap, mainly defined by
the lyrical content about gangsta lifestyle usually based on crime and violence.
