Well, gangsta rap has an edgy, noisy sound and evolved out of hardcore rap.Lyrically, it's just as abrasive, as the rappers spun profane, gritty tales about urban crime. Sometimes the lyrics were an accurate reflection of reality; other times, they were exaggerated comic book stories. While I wouldn't consider Anghellic gangsta rap and I don't know about Killer, Absolute Power and Vintage Tech are most definitely gangsta rap and anyone who disagrees is deaf.

Gangsta rap is a term originated by the mainstream media to describe a certain subgenre of hip hop music which developed during the late 1980s. It is a genre of hip hop that reflects the violent lifestyles of some inner-city youths. ~ Google


I would like you to point out how Tech N9ne represents inner-city violence

You're missing the point of my post.

For him to be gangsta rap, that would need to be a majority of his catalog.

I don't see how going to a strip club, and the strippers ending up being vampires is "Gangsta" Rap

Gunz Will Bust is the only song that comes close to Gangsta Rap, and that's mainly because it has Skatterman & Snug Brim.


I still say he's underground. That's all.

Great.



This has been the most exciting night of your life, hasn't it?

Also, gangsta rap lyrics from "Slacker":

I stay rid of you lames (yaw ***) and play
Video games (all day) what Kansas City, MO brangs
Is gritty slow gain we ditty bop wit really no change (yaw pay)
And people holla how you do that there
Why your pants hangin' low and why you grew that hair
Lightin' a bleezle with my people
Ridin' a regal always in trouble wit coppers cause we drivin' illegal
