Bossip also reports that the museum will showcase major MCs in the "trap" subgenre of rap, its origins and impact on pop culture as a whole.
Unless you have been under a rock when it comes to hip-hop music, trap music has shaped the music industry from the early 90s to the present.
Now, trap music has a very distinctive sound but it has been vastly popular and successful amongst listeners.

The museum in Atlanta will not only highlight artists that have paved the way but also the current artist that are helping to keep the genre alive.
Artists such as 21 Savage, Rick Ross, Future, and Gucci Mane will also have their work showcased within the museum.
