What is trap music?
I’ll start by telling you what trap music is. After that, I’ll tell you why you should listen to it. The genre gets its name from the Atlanta slang word “trap”, a house used exclusively to sell drugs. In trap music, lyrical themes must revolve around the general life and culture in the “trap” or in the actual southern “trap house” where narcotics are being sold. The term “trap” refers to places where drug deals take place. Other topics also include street life, acquiring wealth, violence, American vehicles, and life experiences that artists have faced in their southern American surroundings. By definition, if the “trap” is not discussed in the song, it is not “trap” music.
Trap may use a range of tempos.
From 50 BPM (programmed at 100 BPM to achieve finer hi-hat subdivision) to 88 (176) BPM. But the tempo of a typical trap beat is around 70 (140) BPM. The quickly timed and constantly changing rhythm hi hat patterns followed. during this change, the instrumentation started to abandon traditional hip hop stylings, and move towards a less sample based, more instrument based production. The producers started relying heavily on strings and brass to create this new heavy sound. Eventually, each producer would find their own sound, making trap a very diverse genre. Over time, trap has become very experimental, leading to the many different styles we see today.
