Gangsta rap is a subgenre of hip- hop that reflects the violent lifestyles of some inner city youths. The genre was first pioneered by Schooly D and Ice T in 1980s that are considered founders of the Gangsta Rap music. In the later 1980s the genre is populated by the group N.W.A. The “golden era” is from 1988 to 1996- 97 when is the death of 2pac and Notorious B.I.G. After that year the gangsta rap slowly started to decay because of the new growing style R&B. The now days rap is called pop rap and it doesn’t got the violent sound of the gangsta rap and also doesn’t sing about political and street issues. Mostly of the new rap productions are with R&B singers. It’s mostly sing about love and the new world.
