Miami bass

Miami Bass is a type of Hip-hop music originating in Miami, Florida and becoming popular around the late 80s and early 90s. The use of the Roland TR-808 sustained kick drum, raised dance tempos, and occasional sexually explicit lyrical content differentiate it from other hip-hop sub-genres. 2 Live Crew are credited with popularizing the genre though Miami Bass has never found consistent mainstream acceptance.
