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.
