Trap Music isn’t just the name of rapper T.I’s 2003 sophomore release. This musical genre traces its roots to early nineties southern hip hop. Cities like Atlanta and Memphis nurtured the style, eventually having it transcend regional boundaries. Artists like UGK, Three 6 Mafia and Master P were the category’s pioneers. Over the last few years the style really became known for its heavy emphasis on dance elements from the snare, to synthesizers and hi-hats, the style forged a path along with EDM.
