Trap music is dominating the rap game today, but 15 years ago, T.I. introduced the term with his second album, Trap Muzik.

During an interview on Power 105, TIP declared himself the creator of the rap subgenre.

“We’re just going to make sure that we give everybody the best Tip album that we can give them. I’m going for trap music on this. A lot of people don’t really know that I created trap music. I didn’t think I got that old,” he stated.

“There was no such thing as trap music prior to me,” T.I continued. “No such thing. It didn’t exist. It was Outkast and crunk. It was Organized Noize and crunk.”

What do you think? Can T.I. claim the “creator” title of trap music?
