Gangsta rap and drill can be described as a genre of hip hop music in which gritty, tangible lyrics are spit that give an insight into life on the streets. Traditionally they present complex issues such as crime, poverty and sexuality in urban lifestyles – from growing up without financial stability to gang culture. A large proportion of producer pipelines originates in the Bronx, New York and consists of largely atypical risers; often telling stories about drug and gun culture between sections written with finesse. Despite its often dark content, Gangsta rap strips back complex issues within a manner that both shares grievances but brings community spirit by uniting around important topics - asserting collective strength amongst hard times. Therefore although it has been bemused by many for being exploitive and too graphic, it stands strong as one of several primary examples of protests songs throughout historical social progression.
