Trap music is a polarizing style of HipHop originated in UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}, Georgia, that has gained large popularity over 2012 and 2013. Trap music started as an emergent style in southern rap characterized by spare beats, sharp snare hits, deep bass notes and rhymes about the southern trap lifestyle, of which the genre is named for. The "trap" as it were refers to the drug-dealing lifestyle and the "trap" it can lead to if one isn't careful. Since the main appeal is the beat and vibe the song generates, lyrics are often thematic as a result, featuring sexism (misogyny mainly coming from the male rappers), what some view as "glorified violence" (which would then turn the genre towards horrorcore), drug dealing and use, a heavy use of AAVE (as many of the rappers who make trap music are black and from the South and as a result only know how to speak in AAVE) with some detractors viewing the lyrics as having, "loads and loads of grammatical inaccuracies" and countless [[ClusterFBomb Cluster F Bombs]]. Though a lot of trap music is upbeat and can be considered "turn up" or party music, all of this can also create a dark, slightly abrasive, and hedonistic vibe.
