The Evolution Of Gangsta Rap [1985 - 2019]

Hip-Hop Evolution Of Gangsta Rap, Best Rap Songs Of Each Year, Most Popular Rap Songs Of 2019, Best Hip-Hop Songs 2019.

Gangsta rap or Gangster rap is a style of hip hop characterized by themes and lyrics that generally emphasize the "gangsta" lifestyle. The genre evolved from hard rap into a distinct form, pioneered in the mid-1980s by rappers such as Schoolly D and Ice-T, and was popularized in the later part of the 1980s by groups like N.W.A. After the national attention that Ice-T and N.W.A attracted in the late 1980s and early 1990s, gangsta rap became the most commercially lucrative subgenre of hip hop. Many (if not most) gangsta rap artists openly boast of their associations with various active street gangs as part of their artistic image, with the Bloods and Crips being the most commonly represented. Gangsta rap parallels other indigenous gang and crime-oriented forms of music, such as the narcocorrido genre of northern Mexico.

Hip-hop has arguably been the best genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. Hip-hop has two phases, old school and new school each of which give off a different vibe.

Old School “Hip-Hop” has music based prevalently on African American culture. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E often rap about the struggles of growing up in a racialized environment and the work they put in to get where they are today.

In popular songs such as “Changes” by Tupac and “Juicy” by Biggie Smalls, the artists explain how they went from “negative to positive” as Biggie put it.

Old school hip-hop is still popular today and is regarded as “classic” by many hip-hop fans.

“New school” hip-hop has different types of lyrics. Rappers from today’s generation sing typically about girls, money, and cars they have. Some even sing about how they do drugs, drink alcohol, and party which sets a bad example for some listeners. Some of these rappers today did not have it as hard as rappers back in the old days. Also Hip-hop artists now are racially diverse, so African American culture is not necessarily found in music today.

People who grew up listening to Tupac, Biggie, Eazy-E, and so on typically do not enjoy hip-hop in today’s era. Songs written when rap was introduced were lyrically better because rappers were able to tell a story using words that rhyme and flow.

Some songs are also more appealing to fans because they can relate to the struggles their favorite rappers faced.

People of this generation are used to listening to new school hip-hop which is the most played genre on the radio. These same fans reject old school Hip-Hop as a part of the music genre. There are even rappers who know nothing about the most influential Hip-Hop artists.

Growing up listening to Eminem has caused me to fall in love with him as an artist. He introduced me to Hip-Hop. But I noticed a change in the music industry. Artists wanted to be part of the mainstream industry and they had to change their music to fit into the mainstream category.

Because of new artists in hip-hop, many lessen known artists are rarely noticed. These artists are said to be “underground.” Underground rappers usually do not make it big because they have music related to the messages embodied by old school hip-hop artists would say.

Some people think old school Hip-Hop is better than new school Hip-Hop. And there are many people who prefer underground Hip-Hop to mainstream Hip-Hop. What do you think?

Bien qu'il se dit rappeur pacifiste, il fait du pure Gangsta Rap version Québec. Parlant d'Argent, de violence, de cul, anti-police, anti-église, anti-gouvernement, dénoncant le racisme, l'injustice et parlant de la vie des minorités à Montréal... avec des coups de feu, beaucoup de coups de feu. Un album digne du Gangsta Rap Américain de l'époque 1995-1996.

KC L.M.N.O.P.  Ta Yeul encore. #PMRC

Son nom KC L.M.N.O.P. veut dire Londres Montréal New York Ou Paris ou encore KC Look My Nigga Overcomes Politics pour ensuite devenir ZOOYORKY NARUTO THEREELROCK.

Métis, mi-noir mi-blanc, KC L.M.N.O.P., de son vrai nom, Joseph Claude-François Simard, vient de la Rive-Sud de Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Avant d'être un rappeur, KC L.M.N.O.P. était l'animateur de l'émission Rap Cité à Musique Plus.

KC LMNOP animateur de l'émission Rap Cité à Musique Plus. #PMRC
Look and attitude, KC L.M.N.O.P. alors qu'il animait l'émission 'Rap City' à Musique Plus.

Mais sa carrière de rappeur a pris fin après un incident qui, aux États-Unis, aurait propulsé sa carrière plutôt que la détruire.

La plaignante de 19 ans prétends que le 12 décembre 1995, KC LMNOP l'a ammené dans sa résidence à Mont Saint-Hilaire. Sur place, l'accusé aurait exhibé des armes et tiré des coups de feu dans le mur du sous-sol pour impressionner la jeune fille. Pour ensuite lui dire: "Tu as trois solutions: la première, je te tire une balle dans la tête. La deuxième: je te mets dehors en sous-vêtements et je te tire une balle dans la tête après. La troisième: tu passes dans le lit et après tu vas faire de la prostitution sur Sainte-Catherine pour moi."

Gunshots and pimpin'!!! Y a pas plus Gangsta que ca!

Plus de deux ans plus tard, en février 1998, KC LMNOP est reconnu coupable d'agression sexuelle armée et d'incitation à la prostitution. Il est important de mentionné que le juge a tenu compte des paroles de son album pour rendre son verdict de culpabilité.

Alors agé de 29 ans, KC LMNOP purgera une peine de 4.5 ans de prison. Ouch!

Street cred in the USA, but not good in Quebec!


Après sa sortie de prison et d'autres démêlés avec la justice, le tout premier Gangsta Rapper du Québec, KC LMNOP, est dorénavant un Don Quichotte qui vit 25 ans en arrière toujours en gué-guerre contre Pierre Marchand qui l'a mis dehord de Musique Plus il y a 25 ans hi ha et contre le juge qui l'a envoyé en prison il y a presque 25 ans. 

Voici sa chaîne YouTube qui lui sert a cracher son amertume et a poursuivre son combat contre le passé...

J'aimerais beaucoup avoir les commentaires de KC LMNOP, le gangsta rappeur articulé et charismatique, au bas de mon article. Francois Simard, le "prisonnier politique" ne m'intéresse pas.
