Trap music is a style of rap that’s been popularised by rappers from the city of Atlanta in the US such as Young Jeezy and T.I. (who released an album called Trap Muzik). The ‘trap’ is a term that was used to refer to a “hustle”, which is a way of making a living; or a “hustle spot” where business transactions were done. The trap was also associated with the “fast” and “dirty” money that could easily land one on the wrong side of the law.

If anyone has heard the song “9 Elements”by KRS-ONE off his release, Kristyles; he breaks down the elements of Hip Hop. KRS-ONE makes a profound mention of kids growing up in white suburbia when he says:
“Skaters, BMX bike-riders rock
Don’t you ever stop! You are hip-hop
You doing the same things we did on our block in the suburbs
You know you be packing that black block…”
This quote serves as an ode that hip-hop is now a composite of diverse sounds and welcomes the contribution of white rappers into it. The common infusion of “Rock and Roll” has borne the emergence of “Rap-Rock“, since the inception of acts like The Fat Boys, The Beastie Boys, Kid Rock, Eminem and other similar fair-skinned contributors. It is commonly accepted that the trend started with Run DMC’s collaboration with Aerosmith back in the 1980s.
