I want to know who coined the phrase Trap music. I know T.I. and Jeezy were heavy in the upbringing but who started that name. I'm thinkin it was T.I. but does anybody have any information proving so?

It was this group from Memphis, that moved to Atlanta in the 90s that first used it commercially. Their name is A-dam-shame.

I mean rapper been talking about trapping before ti and jeezy

but Jeezy's trap or die, tm101 was the blueprint of trap music, with that shawty redd sound, and that flow jeezy brought to the game, adlibs and all

ti's trap musik album was cohesive, but not really all that trap like

Jeezy hands down as far as a blueprint but the influences of trap muzik.. heavy synthz's stem from that california g-funk sound but id def say the bay areas Mobb Funk had more influence down south then G Funk.

nice one my dude

While it would be very hard to pinpoint who exactly started it, UGK was talkin about trappin (although not using that term) back in like '91-'92, "Pocket Full of Stones" and "Cocaine In The Back of the Ride".

But like Trizz187 said, todays trap was built off of a bunch of different sounds and merged into one thing.

But modern era trap music imo started with T.I. dropping Trap Muzik back in '03, which started a rough template for the sound. I had never even heard anybody say trap/trappin in music before that tbh .

Then Jeezy came in '04-'05 and evolved it into the more polished sound of Trap or Die/TM 101 and the rest is history.

just cause they say the word trap doesnt make it "trap music"...

What people refer to as "trap music" has its own sound...and like dude said above shawty redd was the pioneer of that sh*t.. the horns, arpeggiators, different pitched 808s, crazy snare rolls he brought that sound to the game wit trap or die.
what people refer to as "trap music" today is different from what people refered to as "trap music" back in 1999.

trap music has evolved to the shawty redd sound.

T.I had an Album called trap muzik that didnt sound like todays trap music. but the music from the 90's that I posted and the music today have the horns, arpeggiators, different pitched 808s, crazy snare rolls, and drug dealing elements.
