Run the trap! Atlanta (aka Hotlanta aka Traplanta) is considered the home of trap music. As a current Atlantan, trap is something that I listen to regularly. Trap music's popularity has increased tremendously in the past few years. It has made its way into the EDM scene, and it has made its way across the world into Asia.
Rap music has never been very popular in Asia. Yet for some reason, Korean and Japanese trap is starting to become trendy internationally.1 As a long time fan of Korean and Japanese rap music, I'm not too sure why it's happening now. Well, that's really a topic for another day. Back on topic, trap music's global influence has reached ridiculous levels. Even Vietnam is getting in on the act.
