-Sense that some of performers suffer from severe severe mental retardation (see Nelly, Ja Rule, 50 Cent, Snoop Dog, Cash Money Records roster)
-Mumbling (in some cases) see Lloyd Banks, I20)
-Heavy use of profanities - in particular, words like "hoe" or "bitch" (female), "nigga" (friendly black male or female) and to lesser extent "cracker"/"white devil" (applied to white males primarily)
-Heavy use of words "aha" and "what?" in the background.
-Poetic lines similar to the ones below
"Well nigga lets get one thing clear, I don't leave the block without my glock.
Is it because i'm standing with your bitch? Or got all these stones on my wrists?
Don't think you're leavin' here with this. I don't leave the block without my glock."
-Stabs at balladry, usually dedicated to Tupac Shakur (who is currently releasing new material, 10 years after being shot) and to lesser extent to Biggie Smalls (who is recording new material after being shot, but not as often as Tupac). However, some ballads are dedicated to other subjects as love and non-violence (see Ja Rule, DMX)
-Almost total absence of females in the genre. The ones that do rap (see Lil Kim, Foxy Brown) tend to talk about material things and their love of thugs. However, there's a large amount of beautiful black ladies who appear in videos, usually in order to satisfy enormous sexual appetites of male performer.
-Heavy use of jewelry and extremely expensive cars in videos, all of which are discussed in lyrics in detail.
No, dude, i'm not into gangsta rap. It sounds dumb to me.
Well, he actually sounded like a horny moron talking on the phone to one of his slutty girls.
Gangsta 2: You are a dumb mother fucker.
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.
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."
A genre of rap that sells out and stereotypes an entire race of people, and rap in general. White people like it because it "raps" about gangs, sex, and drugs, something that middle class America doesn't experience in general. Also, because of gangsta rap, other less violent-tone versions of rap are underappriciated and stereotyped.
White Guy (Bobbin his head): 'Cause gangsta rap is the sound of MAlcom X and MLR Jr. rolling in their graves!! Biatch!!!
