Mumble rap

Mumble rap (often referred to as "SoundCloud rap"[6]) is a loosely defined[4] microgenre[7] of hip hop that largely spread on the online audio distribution platform SoundCloud in the 2010s.[8] The term implies a mumbling or unclear vocal delivery by artists, and may generally refer to rappers who do not share the genre's typical emphasis on lyricism.[9]

While the term has been widely criticized as inaccurate or as a derogatory term,[10][11] some artists have reclaimed the term.[12] Some have defended the style as a new phase in the evolution of the genre.[13][14]
