T.I. Doubles Down On His Trap Music Claims!
(AllHipHop Rumors) T.I. is not letting this Trap Music thing go, no matter how many MLK marches he does. He wants his just credit for creating the subgenre of rap called "Trap Music." I am not sure what the hub-bub is all about. He coined the term! WE know the music existed in some form or another, but JUST like Hip-Hop it didn't have a name. Shout out to the late Love Bug Starski who gave Hip-Hop a name even before it had a name! Kool Herc "invented" but it still was nameless. Anyway, it is a similar thing with Trap Music.
T.I. seems to be deliberately not mentioning Gucci Mane's name even though Gucci is the one that says HE INVENTED IT. On IG, he said: troubleman31This shits obviously goin over y’all heads...so.... i guess I’m gon take the High Road & Just let y’all carry on in the ignorance of fake news... but for those who care for statistics & Facts... this is 2001. I’m serious. “Dope Boyz & The Trap Ni66az”
Y’all stay classy....✌🏽
