There are many different types of music out there and so many different ways to express oneself, but when we have something popular, that means that a lot of people like what you’re doing; they see that it is different and that it is engaging and so many times that is enough to make something popular.

Take U2, for example, their music may not be the best in the world, but most people enjoy it because it’s unique.

  • What is trap music?
  • What are some of the features of trap music?
  • What makes it different from other genres?
  • Why is it so popular?

Well, those are just a few of the questions that will be covered in this article.

What is trap music?

Trap music is a genre of music that consists of the use of rhythm and percussion. For those who don’t know, rhythm and percussion are an important part of hip hop.

What makes it unique is that it combines these two things and creates a new way to rap that is catchy and somewhat unique. Why is it catchy?

Well, it’s obvious in the fact that there are a lot of different voices that are constantly going back and forth. The drums always seem to be there; even if it’s not the main beat, it’s an important part of the music.

There are often instrumental tracks that use a lot of drums and other sounds that make the track very catchy. Why is it unique?

Well, the biggest thing about trap music is that it’s different. The beats are very catchy, and it’s straightforward to dance to them.

Another thing that makes it different is that many vocals are not your normal rap vocals; they sound more like rappers from the ’90s. The people in this subgenre of hip hop are also known for their collaborations, making them even more different from any other subgenre of hip hop.

The fact that the people making this music are all different makes the music unique; it’s not cookie cutter or the same thing everyone is doing. They are not some guy that another artist influenced, and now he’s making a different-sounding song.

Many reasons are behind why trap music is so popular. The biggest reason trap music is popular is that it is different, it’s catchy, it’s exciting, and it’s not the same thing that everyone is doing.

Now that we know what trap music is, how it’s different and why it’s popular, it’s time to get to the good stuff! Let’s get into the origins of trap music and see how it came to be and how it affected Hip Hop’s evolution and the rest of the music that is out there today.

As I stated earlier, for something to be classified as a sub-genre of Hip-Hop, it needs to be created in conjunction with another music genre. Just some guy in the Bronx did not create trap music.

Trap music was created and brought to life through a combination of two very different types of music.


R&B music has been around for a long time and has been created in conjunction with much other music and other musical sounds. You have the traditional R&B music of the past, and you have the rap music of today.

Rap music is typically made by artists who use rhythm and rap and rhyming as an important part of their music. These two styles of music combined to make what is referred to as R&B Trap Music.

Traditional R&B music was created around the beginning of the 20th century and was used by George Gershwin and Count Basie’s likes. These artists also created a subgenre of their music called Jazz.

Jazz had been around for many years and is a musical genre that dates back to the early 1900s. Traditional R&B music has its own sounds and riffs to the music.

It’s also famous for using the rhythms of traditional R&B music and incorporating Jazz’s melodies into the sound of traditional R&B music. The “Blues” was also a sub-genre of this music.

The Blues music style dates back to the early 20th century. It influences traditional Jazz, R&B, Classical, Blues, Folk, and many other music styles.

The Blues music is usually very simple and sad sounding. You can find many great recordings of the Blues on YouTube.

Some of these recordings you’ll see are hilarious; they’ll be hilarious just because of how the Blues music is made. Some of these recordings of Blues are also beautiful.

These recordings are real, they have recorded life, and they’re called “live Blues.”

At one point in the mid-20th century and after, rap music started to form.

In the 1950s and 1960s, there was music called Rap. Artists made rap in the ghetto who used the rhythmic and rhyming skills from traditional R&B music along with hip hop sounds to make what is considered “rap music.”

Rappers will make rhymes and sing about their problems, violence, and lyrics that reflect their lifestyles. Rappers will also make up a lot of their own language and sound when they rap.

Some rappers will rap about topics that you would not normally hear or see on the radio. In the 1980s, this rap music style took over and became the dominant style of music for the “gangsta” lifestyle in urban neighborhoods.

In the 1970s, R&B had a huge influence on rap music, and they would often be mistaken for the same genre of music. R&B is R&B, and rap is rap.

Rap is also just a style of music combined with other styles and music styles to create what is today known as trap music.

Many different rappers have also tried to claim that they invented the term “rap music.” To see who actually invented the term, click here. A lot of people will say that Tupac invented the term. Tupac was a very successful rapper and even more successful as an actor.

I have no doubts that Tupac is an early pioneer in the field of Rap music. Others have disputed this claim, and many have also said that Snoop Dogg invented the term “rap music” and that Snoop invented the term “gangsta.”

Rapper Eminem has a following of over 43 Million people on YouTube.
