"Ironic rap is a genre pioneered by the likes of Why?, El-P and MF DOOM, that emerged in the early 2000s but has not become mainstream until the late 00s.

Meme Rap is a form of ironic rap and is a sub-genre of hip hop music, characterized by ironic and joke lyrics, unconvetional beats, weird and ironic sampling (see: SGP), and funny catchphrases. MF DOOM is often considered the godfather of meme rap with his often called "forever alone" style of rapping. Others argue that Lil B is the one who "officially" started meme rap. In the dawn of 2010 meme rap was seeing radio play and mainstream attention with many meme rappers influenced by MF DOOM and Lil B. Death Grips, a fellow meme rap outfit well known for their "we are legion" lyrics were considered the best band of 2012.

Basically, if one of the artists got BNM, is white, is surrounded by tumblr imagery, uses a voice deepener (whatever you call it), makes carefree music (Lil B, Chance, Das Racist) and parodies other rap music (Lil Ugly Mane, Yung Lean) it's meme rap. It's just all those artists which are very different in an ironic way, use the internet a lot, don't take their music seriously or they do but are enjoyed ironically.

A lot of meme rap is hip hop that's intended to be serious but is listened to ironically. Ironic rap is similar, but never is intended to be taken seriously. The intention of the artist is very important here.

Take for example Lil Ugly Mane, he is ironically rapping about things he doesn't understand and acts like a black person on his mixtapes."

"Semi-conscious meme rap refers to ironic/meme rap delivered in a more serious fashion. It draws influences from conscious rap but the two don't have much in common. Semi-conscious meme rap tackles serious themes in an ironic tone, so it still manages to maintain its meme rap sensibilities."

">all these white boys mad because their whiteboy rap is being called out for what it is"

"Lmfao, enjoy your meme rap pitchfork trustfund kiddies"
