Boom Bap

Boom bap is a music production style that was prominent in East Coast hip hop music during the 1990's.[1]

The term "boom bap" is an onomatopoeia that represents the sounds used for the bass (kick) drum and snare drum, respectively. The style is usually recognized by a main drum loop that uses a hard-hitting, acoustic bass drum sample on the downbeats, a snappy acoustic snare drum sample on the upbeats, and an "in your face" audio mix emphasizing the drum loop, and the kick-snare combination in particular.

Prominent hip hop artists that incorporated "boom bap" in their music include Nas, Mobb Deep, Boot Camp Clik, Wu-Tang Clan and DJ Premier.
