Some of yall going by the dialect i.e. who used the terms "trapping", "moving work", etc. while some of yall going by the sound "crazy snares", "different pitched 808s", etc. Which one defines the "trap music" tho?!

Just because a n*gga from early 90s used certain terms to refer to crack houses and cocaine, it doesnt mean the "trap music" as we know today, at least in my understanding.

Like that other n*ggaz posted b4 me, just to use this as a recent example, T.I. calling his album "trap muzik" didnt really produce what we consider as trap music today.

To me trap music is that stove music... Tracks to put that work in in da kitchen to... Not necessarily in terms of describing the ghetto life as Ball & G did, or UGK did, but just that ignant spatula music. It gots to do more with the Sound because it sets the tone for that trap sh*t forreal forreal. The lyrics and word play is secondary to me when it comes to that trap sh*t. So, having all that said, it was Gucci for me. Yea jeezy and shawty redd did they thang on tm101, and i give him for the adlib saturation, which is another critical element of todays trap music, but it was gucci's ignant talk and zaytoven's gritty organs that defined at least what i consider to be trap music.

Again this can always argued otherwise depending on what one considers to be the "true" form of that real trap sh*t [trappaholics drop voice].
This right here is the truth.

I mean ... UGK, Master P & Three 6 Mafia and a bunch of other early southern groups (mentioned in earlier posts) all created the blueprint for what trap is music is today. You can even go farther back and talk about Too Short, E-40, B-Legit and of other Bay Area groups. Trap Music's subject matter is nothing new. These same topics have been covered in Hip-Hop dating back to the 80's.

The reality is when I think about Trap Music Gucci sticks out the most to me personally. He embodies what the Trap is all about more than anyone else imo. It's that ignant, spatula, bassy, gully, 808 heavy high hat sh!t that focuses more on production than on being lyrical. Of course the adlibs are an essential part of the sound. Jeezy, Tip and Gucci were the artists that blew the Trap up before Ross, Waka and Chief Keef stepped in.

At the end of the day alotta different groups, producers and rappers helped spawn this sound. It can't just be pin pointed to just one particular artist or producer.

If I had to crown one 'King of the Trap' i'd have it give it to Gucci.

They repeatedly made drug references in their songs and the bps Mannie and Beats by da Pund used were thrown into the gumbo pot to create the trap sound later on.
