Shoreline Mafia Share Their Definition of 'Trap' at Hot 100 Fest: Watch

Shoreline Mafia sat down with Billboard backstage at the Hot 100 Festival over the weekend to discuss trap music and their future plans.

After their performance, the guys talked about their Traplantic documentary and what trap means to them. "Trap has become the word for hustling. That's what trap has become. It's not about a sound of music or a drum sound; it's a lifestyle."

While the guys made it clear they they do not condone "fake trappin'," those who are truly trapping have earned their salute. When asked about the roots behind their name, crew member Master Kato pointed to the beach and said, "You see this? You see the ocean? That's us."
