Noun[edit]

boom bap (uncountable)

  1. (music) A style/sub-genre of hip hop characterized by hard-hitting drums, usually containing the kick drum/snare drum/hi-hat combination rather than claps, snaps, TR-808 bass drums, cowbells, shakers, and various other percussion sounds used for rhythm.
    A beat made with the 808 drum kit isn't boom bap!
