I just don't think it sounds good

The music I like that emulates the gang life sounds good. And the rappers in question have some sort of personal connection to that lifestyle.

E.g. mobb deep. They are definitely studio gangsters but they also grew up in a gang ridden environment and internalized a lot of the ethos of the criminal lifestyle through their exposure to that environment.

They paint a picture that is at once glorifies the crime life (because of the obvious material draw to such a life) while also painting it in the bleakest, grittiest and most nihilistic way possible. That's basically gangster rap at its finest imo.

Hey, Marie, check this ****.

2pac actually is hip hop through and through

If icp sounded even remotely like 2pac, with even half as much depth of personality, I would bump them

Bro he's corny as ****. He's just in it to ride on the gangsta rap bandwagon and give black people exactly what ICP give white people: cinematic party hits about nihilistic cool bad shit.

Honestly you're out of your realm though

Framing him as just a party rapper is a dead giveaway
