Ah, Gangsta Rap: probably one of the most controversial genres of music to ever hit the mainstream. Many accuse the genre (and Hip-Hop in general) of [[ClusterFBomb gratuitous]] [[NWordPrivileges profanity]], glorification of violence, glorification of drug dealing and usage, homophobia, misogyny [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and grammatical inaccuracy]], while others saw the sub genre as a form of [[CatharsisFactor catharsis]].

Ah, Gangsta Rap: probably one of the most controversial genres of music to ever hit the mainstream. A lot of MoralGuardians accused the genre (and Hip-Hop in general) of homophobia, and misogyny, while others saw the sub genre as a form of [[CatharsisFactor catharsis]], and just pure entertainment.

The term Gangsta Rap actually came from the media not the artists themselves, though some have called the genre "Reality Rap", or ''prime time news'' in the form of rap music. The genre even has shades of ConsciousHipHop, and PoliticalRap (at least in the beginning when the first wave of the genre was quasi-sociopolitical, this is rarely if ever brought up by the genre's detractors). There's also a lot of issues with mislabeling. Quite a few rappers who didn't fall into the Alt rap, or indie scene were automatically placed under the umbrella term Gangsta rap. Usually cynically and unfairly. There's also debate going on about whether the genre is still alive and well in the mainstream, or is it [[DeadHorseGenre deader than a horse]]. Some proponents feels that it died a long time ago, while opponents (usually alt/indie rap fans) think a watered down version is still very much active, and continuing the UncleTomFoolery, and the dumbing down of the genre.

* Tweety Bird Loc: Hardcore. However, a lot of his songs are comical in nature more than about violence.

-->''"Mama I aint going to school today wearing these same old clothes, Do you remember the look in her eye when she made you a meal and you didn't eat it, and all them tears she shed beside your bed over things that you needed, I still remember the way that I felt when I picked up a gun, I still remember the tears that I shed when my cousin was blasted with one, Do you remember the way that you felt when you walked out of prison, Or do you remember the pain that you felt from them sending you back for no reason"''
