Template:Infobox music genre Shadow rap is similar to Cloud rap (in the sense of having a catchy, ambient and physedelic feel), but meant to be a darker and/or more evil version of it.
Along with the sinister sound made by repetitive notes (with reeverb) and hard hitting 808 subs (like trap), the lyrics are mostly agressive, crazy, and/or sinful.
Shadow rapTemplate:Not in source is made up of the actual rap lyrics and tone that range from being phychotic and agressive to apathetic and/or tedious. Rappers express being lethargic about life, unsympathetically hostile, malicious, vengeful, and/or straight savage; and speak about drugs, violence, money, fucking bitches, and/or doing craziness along with the nice instrumentals and hard hitting 808s in the beats, which make them unique enough to fall into this new upcoming genre.
