T.I. Reveals The Exact Date That ‘Trap Music’ Was Invented

T.I. Reveals The Exact Date That ‘Trap Music’ Was Invented

In a recent episode People’s Party with Talib Kweli, rapper T.I. has shared his thoughts about ‘trap music’. He explained the exact date that “Trap Music” was invented while “Trap” was a presence in hip-hop in the 80s and 90s, “Trap Music” wasn’t officially invented until 2003.

He said:

“So many people before me have said trap in a record but the words trap and music have never been combined to describe a sound before August 19th, 2003, when my album Trap Muzik was released.”

T.I. admits that this concept has already been used:

“People rapped about drug dealing before but the word Trap and the word Music had never been combined to describe a sound. Not to discredit or diminish any of the contributions from any of the other founding forefathers or any of the other contributors. I think everybody should get their just due, and they’ve earned they respect. I don’t think I by myself could have taken it from where it was when I conceived it to what it is today.”
