Boom Boom, Pow Pow: Rappers Making Gun Sounds

Rappers and gun sounds have a long history. While a simple “bang bang” does the trick, rappers have been getting creative with it for decades, and some have even turned their gun sounds into famous (or infamous) ad-libs. While indicative of rap’s violent nature, it’s even more indicative of the creativity rappers tap into while telling their stories. Sure, they might all be getting across the same thing, but they’ve come up with dozens of different ways to do it. We decided to take a closer look.
