Nope. There is a Go-Go subgenre called Bounce Go-Go. It's one of the most distinctive sounds of Go-Go. There's also Mombahton, another Go-Go subgenre (it has some Dancehall influences). A lot of Hip Hop artists here in the DMV incorporate Go-Go into their music but they also heavily incorporate Soul, Trap, Boom Bap, Chillwave, Electronica, Experimental, World, Jazz, etc. into their sounds.

If there was law that banned the profiting of rap music, every one of these rappers you see on the MTVs and BETs would jet. Eventually hip hop will come back to the real as it did in 1993-1994 after Hammer, Snow, and Vanilla Ice damn near destroyed it. Its a bigger problem now because there are more wack artists on the mainstream ticket, so it may take time.
There's a only a handful of mainstream rappers that are legit to me personally. A majority of the great stuff is underground though from a lot of metro areas and regions in the country. Too many to name honestly.

DC was big on chopped and screwed in the early mid 00's. I still drive to it and love the bewildered reaction on the unassuming public while listening to their mainstream music.

Yeah I knew somebody would bring this up. There's the bounce beat of gogo true. But bounce music is straight New Orleans. It's been around longer.

Yep. Btw, doesn't Atlanta have a Bounce music scene that's influenced from the original scene in New Orleans?

Nah. In the 90s, Atlanta made music similar to what you would hear from Florida. Very similar music. Nobody but NO did bounce.
