DID T.I. INVENT TRAP MUSIC ?
GET ALL THE DETAILS HERE!
The King of The South took to Instagram to address the true origins of Trap Music.
The Internet has been debating whether or not Gucci Mane or T.I. should be to thank for the creative music style that originated in the early 2000’s.
T.I. has remained adamant about his self-proclaimed title of originator of trap music. Still, over the last few months, his claim has been met with his resistance — and after Gucci Mane took the honor of anointing himself as the inventor in an Instagram post on Saturday (April 7), T.I. refuted his claims on Monday (April 9).
“Ok,so…. AGAIN for the slow ones in the back…August 19th,2003 Birth of Trap Muzik & Only fools dispute facts!!!, “T.I. captioned his post, which included a picture of his sophomore album Trap Muzik. “FOH wit that Christopher Columbus ass…Look what I discovered,even though they was already here” ass shit!!!! WITCHO GOOD CAPPIN ASS.”
On Saturday, Gucci Mane posted a picture on Instagram with the post reading, “The Day I Invented Trap Music #Guwop aka #TheEvilGenius#1017Ceo.”
Last April, T.I. first dished out his candid thoughts as to who he deemed as the originator of trap music.
“We’re just gonna make sure we give everybody the best Tip album we can give them,” he said during his interview with Martinez.
“I’m going for Trap Muzik on this, ’cause a lot of people don’t really know that I created trap music, like I got that old”
Both rappers feel they deserve the title. T.I. decided to drop some facts about the trap music history crediting himself back in 2001. A fan addressed the subject and he continued to lay out his version of the timeline of historical events that created “trap music”.
