    I'd like to make a research about it, in my opinion Travis Scott deserves it. Some people say Gucci Mane but i just don't enjoy his voice and his music.

    TIP may have coined the phrase (I don't think thats 100% true actually but I'd give him the benefit of the doubt), but Gucci is the undisputed godfather. He took to another level

    wait didn't read the title properly lol. In terms of current king, I honestly couldn't say. Its hard to say what trap is anymore, technically almost everything is trap now. if we're talking about the classic definition - ATL/trap house type s--- then its probably Future, with 21 Savage very close behind. I guess Offset could be a contender as well.

    I definitely don't think Travis Scott falls into the classic definition but if we're expanding it that broadly then yeah I guess he'd be up near the top too, off popularity alone. Thats a stretch though.

    If anybody were the godfather of trap, it'll be UGK or Master P.

    As of right now, there isn't a trap king right now. Trap's been so eviscerated that it doesn't even know what it is anymore. Until Jeezy drops, there won't be a king as close to Clifford "the Big Red Dog" Harris.

    It definitely is. Not saying trap is a bad thing btw but honestly I got/get kinda tired of albums that have 12 songs sounding almost exactly the same lol
