    What you guys don't understand is that im saying mafioso rap wasn't a term ten years ago

    that's why im trying to figure out when the term was actually first used

    wiki definition of the term to describe rappers like kool g rap was not used to describe the sub genre back when the music had came out

    in my opinion it is a new term with no history like mumble rap

    Mumble rap is a nickname for a subgenre of rap music, originating in the mid-2010s in the United States. Contents. [hide]. 1 Origins; 2 Critiques; 3 See also; 4 References. Origins[edit]. The term mumble rap was first coined by Wiz Khalifa, in June 2016 at a radio interview. Artists commonly referred to as "mumble rappers" ...

    u telling me mumble rap has history too?

    No it doesn't it was started on the internet and wiki ran with it

    it's like urban dictionary

    you got ten definition to 1 word of the urban dictionary

    it's a matter of opinion for those entered their personal definition of the word

    So you telling me mafioso rap was considered a sub genre in the 90's?

    No

    it was a sub genre created by internet geeks who needs to separate it and give it a title

    In my head I think Schooly D was the first 'gangsta rapper', but G Rap was the first to birth the new style of the like 'butter flow' rap along with mafiaso lyrics...

    Just-Ice used the term "gangster" but by today's standards he wasn't a gangster rapper. He cursed on some of his records but that's about it.

    That's why I'm asking for a clear definition of "gangsta rap".

    I really don't give a damn about today's standards to be honest. Also, most of the dudes doing dirt wasn't false flagging on records. Just Ice was also official in the streets though. You might be correct if you are applying the "West Coast" definition of Gangsta Rap. I consider all grimy music Gangsta..

    to me a this is where it gets tricky

    cuz back then if you was hardcore you was considered a gangsta rapper

    even if you were mafioso cuz if im not mistakes even italian mafia was considered gangsters

    so you didn't actually have to be a west coast set claiming gangster from L.A. to be a gangster

    you could a hustler from New York with ties to the mob or just involved into some street type shit

    and you was lumped into the gangster catagory

    it was later on they started separating into different categories like mafioso etc .....

    a gangsta is not the L.A. definition of the term in Houston.

    to be a gangsta in L.A. you gotta live and die by your set and your color red or blue etc.

    In Houston you can bang red or blue you could wear either color,you can go into different hoods and hang out with them

    you can do business with a person wearing red or blue

    you don't have to shoot people based off the color they wear

    but you can basically do some gangsta shit like hustle, bust shotz , jack moves , rob shit gangsta do ...

    yeah you may be in a set but many times you don't have to be part of a particular set

    that's why they will say man that's gangsta

    Ima gangsta but they will have people wearing red in their rap crews even tho they claim blue.

    There are folks not even in gangs and if you ask the gangsta rappers they might say he gangsta

    it's like the term is a lil looser then it is out west

    you aint gotta have all these qualifications
