Ice-T suggested that the furor over the song was an overreaction, telling journalist Chuck Philips " Arnold Schwarzenegger blew away dozens of cops as the Terminator.
But I don't hear anybody complaining about that. But nobody wants a black man to write a record about a cop killer. Ice-T's next album, Home Invasion was postponed as a result of the controversy, and was finally released in While it contained gangsta elements, it was his most political album to date.
After a proposed censoring of the Home Invasion album cover art, he left Warner Bros. Ice-T's subsequent releases went back to straight gangsta-ism, but were never as popular as his earlier releases.
He had alienated his core audience with his involvement in metal, his emphasis on politics and with his uptempo Bomb-Squad style beats during a time when G-funk was popular.
In , former N. A member Dr. The album established the dominance of West Coast gangsta rap and Dre's new post-N. A label, Death Row Records owned by Dr.
The album also began the subgenre of G-funk, a slow, drawled form of hip hop that dominated the rap charts for some time. Extensively sampling P-Funk bands, especially Parliament and Funkadelic , G-funk was multi-layered, yet simple and easy to dance to.
The simple message of its lyrics, that life's problems could be overcome by guns, alcohol, and marijuana, endeared it to a teenage audience. The single " Nuthin' but a "G" Thang " became a crossover hit, with its humorous, House Party -influenced video becoming an MTV staple despite that network's historic orientation towards rock music.
Another success was Ice Cube 's Predator album, released at about the same time as The Chronic in It sold over 5 million copies and was 1 in the charts, propelled by the hit single " It Was a Good Day ", despite the fact that Ice Cube was not a Death Row artist.
Not long afterward, his shocking murder brought gangsta rap into the national headlines and propelled his posthumous The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory album released under the alias "Makaveli" which eerily featured an image of 2Pac being crucified on the front cover to the top of the charts.
Warren G was another G-funk musician along with the now deceased Nate Dogg. Along with the rappers that have ties to G-funk, Vince Staples is part of the new generation of rappers that is influenced by G-funk.
His album, Summertime '06, reflects the "challenges of racism, injustice, and violent fallouts in his childhood neighborhood. Mafioso rap is a hardcore hip hop subgenre founded by Kool G Rap in the late s.
Mafioso rap is characterized by references to famous mobsters and mafiosi , racketeering and organized crime in general but especially the Sicilian Mafia , the Italian-American Mafia , African-American organized crime and Latin American organized crime or drug cartels.
Though a significant amount of mafioso rap was more gritty and street-oriented, focusing on street-level organized crime, other mafioso rap artists frequently focused on lavish, self-indulgent, materialistic and luxurious subject matter associated with crime bosses and high-level mobsters, such as expensive drugs, cars and expensive champagne.
Though the genre died down for several years, it re-emerged in when Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon released his critically acclaimed solo album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx These three albums brought the genre to mainstream recognition, and inspired other East Coast artists, such as Jay-Z , Notorious B.
Though Mafioso rap declined in the mainstream by the late s, it saw somewhat of a revival in the mid s [ citation needed ] with Ghostface Killah 's Fishscale , Jay-Z 's American Gangster , and Raekwon 's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Similarly, in recent years, [ when?
Lil' Kim 's mafioso album La Bella Mafia , released in , was a commercial success, receiving platinum certification.
In , both Nas and The Notorious B. In an interview for The Independent in , the Wu-Tang Clan's GZA commented on the term "gangsta rap" and its association with his group's music and hip hop at the time:.
Our music is not 'gangsta rap'. There's no such thing. The label was created by the media to limit what we can say. We just deliver the truth in a brutal fashion.
The young black male is a target. Snoop Doggy Dogg has gone four times platinum and makes more money than the president.
They don't like that, so you hear 'ban this, ban that'. We attack people's emotions. It's a real live show that brings out the inside in people. Like I said, intense.
Even before the murders, Death Row had begun to unravel, as co-founder Dr. Dre had left earlier in ; in the aftermath of 2Pac's death, label owner Suge Knight was sentenced to prison for a parole violation, and Death Row proceeded to sink quickly as most of its remaining artists, including Snoop Dogg , left.
While Puff Daddy's Bad Boy Entertainment fared better than its West Coast rival, it eventually began to lose popularity and support by the end of the decade, due to its pursuit of a more mainstream sound, as well as challenges from Atlanta and New Orleans-based labels, especially, Master P 's No Limit stable of popular rappers.
After the deaths of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls and the media attention the murders generated,  gangsta rap became an even greater commercial force.
However, most of the industry's major labels were in turmoil, bankrupt, or creatively stagnant, and new labels representing the rap scenes in new locations sprang up.
Master P's No Limit Records label, based out of New Orleans, became quite popular in the late s, though critical success was very scarce, with the exceptions of some later additions like Mystikal Ghetto Fabulous , Cash Money Records , also based out of New Orleans, had enormous commercial success beginning in the late s with a similar musical style but utilized a quality-over-quantity business approach unlike No Limit.
Memphis collective Hypnotize Minds , led by Three 6 Mafia and Project Pat , have taken gangsta rap to some of its darker extremes.
Led by in-house producers DJ Paul and Juicy J , the label became known for its pulsating, menacing beats and uncompromisingly thuggish lyrics.
However, in the mids, the group began attaining more mainstream popularity, eventually culminating in the Three 6 Mafia winning an Academy Award for the song " It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp " from Hustle and Flow.
Midwest gangsta rap originated in the mids and rose to major prominence in the s. However, in the s a new form of gangsta rap known as drill emerged from the Midwest.
Midwest hip hop was originally distinctive for its faster-paced flow. This is evident in the styles of the earliest Midwestern rappers to release albums, Chicago's Twista and Cleveland's Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
Bone Thugs, known for their fast, harmonizing vocals coupled with an ultra-quick rap delivery, would achieve major success with their critically acclaimed album E.
Houston first came on to the national scene in the late s with the violent and disturbing stories told by the Geto Boys , with member Scarface achieving major solo success in the mids.
The Chopped and Screwed genre was developed in Houston , Texas which remains the location most associated with the style. Narco-rap is a music scene, similar to the early underground gangsta rap scene, that emerged in northeastern Mexico and southern Texas.
Its lyrical content, popular among Latino youth, is violent and focuses on the power of drug cartels and the gruesomeness of the drug war in the border region.
Narco-rap emerged in the urban area of Tamaulipas, a turf currently under armed dispute between the Zetas and the Gulf Cartel. Narco-rappers sing about the life of mobsters and the reality of the cities under the cartel's rule.
Before the late s, gangsta rap, while a huge-selling genre, had been regarded as well outside of the pop mainstream, committed to representing the experience of the inner-city and not "selling out" to the pop charts.
The earlier, somewhat controversial crossover success enjoyed by popular gangsta rap songs like " Gin and Juice " gave way to gangsta rap's becoming a widely accepted staple on the pop charts in the late s.
For example, between the release of The Notorious B. Many of the artists who achieved such mainstream success in the s, such as Jay-Z , DMX , then 50 Cent and G-Unit , originated from the gritty s East Coast rap scene and were influenced by hardcore artists such as The Notorious B.
Mase and Cam'ron were typical of a more relaxed, casual flow that became the pop-gangsta norm. By contrast, other rappers like Eminem and DMX enjoyed commercial success in the late s by rapping about ever-more macabre tales of death and violence, maintaining commercial relevance by attempting to be controversial and subversive, growing on the Horrorcore rap style born in the late s.
Gangsta rap's pioneers have met success in other forms of pop culture as well. In , N. The explicit nature of gangsta rap's lyrics has made it heavily controversial.
There is also debate about the causation between gangsta rap and violent behavior. Critics of gangsta rap hold that it glorifies and encourages criminal behavior, and may be at least partially to blame for the problem of street gangs.
Those who are supportive or at least less critical of gangsta rap hold that crime on the street level is for the most part a reaction to poverty and that gangsta rap reflects the reality of lower class life.
Many believe that the blaming of crime on gangsta rap is a form of unwarranted moral panic ; The World Development Report , for instance, confirmed that most street gang members maintain that poverty and unemployment is what drove them to crime; none made reference to music.
Moreover, English scholar Ronald A. Judy has argued that gangsta rap reflects the experience of blackness at the end of political economy, when capital is no longer wholly produced by human labor but in a globalized system of commodities.
Despite this, many who hold that gangsta rap is not responsible for social ills are critical of the way many gangsta rappers intentionally exaggerate their criminal pasts for the sake of street credibility.
Rick Ross  and Slim Jesus  among others have been heavily criticized for this. In , then-U. Vice President Dan Quayle blasted the recording industry for producing rap music he believed led to violence.
Quayle called on Time Warner Inc. Quayle stated, "There is absolutely no reason for a record like this to be published—It has no place in our society.
Howard was driving a stolen vehicle while songs from 2Pacalypse Now were playing on the tape deck when he was stopped by the officer.
The family of Davidson filed a civil suit against Shakur and Interscope Records, claiming the record's violent lyrics incite "imminent lawless action".
Rainey held that Shakur and the record companies did not have the duty to prevent distributing his music when they could not reasonably foresee violence arising from the distribution, nor was there any intent for the usage of the music as a "product for purposes of recovery under a products liability theory.
Politicians such as C. Delores Tucker have cited concerns with sexually explicit and misogynistic lyrics featured in hip-hop tracks. Tucker claimed the explicit lyrics used in hip-hop songs were threatening to the African-American community.
Tucker, who once was the highest-ranking African American woman in the Pennsylvania state government, focused on rap music in , labeling it as "pornographic filth" and claiming it was offensive and demeaning to black women.
Tucker stated, "You can't listen to all that language and filth without it affecting you. She picketed stores that sold the music and handed out petitions.
Contextually and musically, it borrows its influences from the French and US-based gangsta rap and battle rap.
Although there is a certain correlation between street-rap and gangsta-rap, gangsta-rap is not considered as a derivative genre since it is only partially related to street-rap and has contextually little to do with the other subgenre.
Pioneers of the subgenre gangsta-rap, who have since the s still been active, are Kool Savas and Azad. Within the genre, they implemented an incredibly explicit, broken and aggressive text, that originally still had much influence from English text elements.
On the other hand, Savas distanced himself from these vulgar and explicit texts. Germany at the time, however, had few rappers active in this subgenre; allowing certain artists in the Berlin underground-hip-hop scene an opportunity to establish themselves with their lyrics representing a certain hardship acquired through the criminal lifestyle which had previously been popularized.
Another notable rapper and pioneer of gangsta-rap in Germany is Azad. Although he came from the rural Frankfurt am Main , he was a big reason this subgenre became popular in Germany.
In his lyrical text, he thematized the rigid and rough lifestyle of living in the northwest district of Frankfurt.
At the beginning of the year the process of commercialization of this subgenre began. Contrary to popular belief, a variable of the German gangsta-rap became popular before the actual subgenre itself did.
When Sido , a notoriously known rapper from Berlin, released his album Maske which thematized gangs, drugs and violence, this album became the first of its genre to sell , copies.
Following that album Sido released another two named Ich and Ich und meine Maske which both had over , sold copies and emphasized the success of his first album.
Following the success of Sido and his albums, Bushido became the next artist to emerge from the German gangsta-rap scene.
He established himself a career and became the most important representative of German gangsta-rap of his time. Aggro Berlin , the label those two artists were both represented by, stated that this version of rap was the second, more aggressive evolution of German hip-hop.
Following the continuous success of Sido and Bushido came a wave of rappers who were trying, with the help of major-labels, to establish themselves and be recognized by the populace.
This artist did not reach the success of 50 Cent. Gangsta-rap in Germany originated from Queensbridge-rap in the s as well as French gangsta-rap.
Characteristically the necessary ambiance and melody for this type of hip-hop needs to be melancholic, dark and often threatening.
Often, the songs incorporate piano, choir, synthesizers, but also samples from classical and neo-classical arrangements. All complexities such as minimalistic arrangements to vast orchestral symphonic arrangements are used and sampled in this subgenre.
Road rap also known as British gangsta rap or simply UK rap is a genre of music pioneered in South London , primarily in Brixton and Peckham. The road rap scene centres around mixtape releases and YouTube videos with some of the genres more popular acts getting mainstream recognition.
In the early s, the American genre drill began to emerge in the UK, pushed by artists such as , 67 and Section Boyz.

Gangsta rap has been accused of encouraging misogyny due to the objectification of women in rap videos, album covers and lyrics. Many rap artists, including Eminem and N.
Women have also been sexually objectified in gangsta rap lyrics and are often portrayed as only being good for sex. Many gangsta rappers have made records that openly promote and encourage the use of marijuana and other drugs, most famously Dr.
Dre with his iconic album "The Chronic," which itself is a slang term for marijuana. Drug dealing as a means of making a living is also a recurring theme in gangsta rap music.
