Trap music uses synthesized drums and is characterized by complex hi-hat patterns, tuned kick drums with a long decay (originally from the Roland TR-808 drum machine), and lyrical content that often focuses on drug use and urban violence.
To be clear, rap is the delivery used in hip-hop music and trap is a sub-genre of hip-hop music. Therefore, out of the two, only trap is a genre. Trap derives from hip-hop, an urban-based genre from New York City.
Scott's ability to create two-part songs shines throughout "Way Back." The first part is a more uptempo trap vibe that slowly transitions into a melodic flow. With assisted vocals from Kid Cudi, it's hard skipping this track when it comes up.
The snares and claps are usually less rhythmic than the hats, playing straighter parts. Fast-trap listeners and many producers think of the snare on beat 3 of the bar; slow-feel people hear it on beat 2. One of the reasons that trap works so well for rappers is that it leaves plenty of space in the middle of the mix.
