What is scam rap?
Scam rap is a subgenre of hip hop where rappers detail their past and present committing fraud, scams, and other crimes to grow their pockets. This subgenre became popular thanks to the song Dark Web by Teejayx6, where the artist explains in detail how to commit fraud with the help of the dark web. Want to read about another scam rapper?

Unlike many of his contemporaries in the Chicago rap scene, Bandman Kevo does not make drill music. With a criminal history including financial crimes, and songs that detail frauds including hacking ATMs, it is hard to take Bandman Kevo’s legitimate businesses seriously.

What we do know is that he makes good music. Tune in to Bandman Kevo’s discography on Spotify or wherever you stream music.
