Country rap or Country hip hop is a fusion genre of popular music blasting country music with hip hop -style rapping. The lyric "From L. Rutt heard a performance of the minstrel song " Old Aunt Jemima " The song " Rappin' Duke " is a parody of western film star John Wayne : "Two hundred punks, well, what you gonna do? The song also contains a reference to " Old Folks at Home " UGK became pioneer of the hardcore Southern rap style that emerged after the success of the Geto Boys , which they started to call "country rap". At the end of "Let Me See It", Pimp C raps: "This ain't no muthafuckin' hip-hop records, these country rap tunes", originally a response to Northern hip hop artists who had criticized Southern rap for not being "real hip-hop". Country rap in its modern form can be traced back to Kid Rock 's " Cowboy " which reflects a cross-section of Kid Rock's country music , Southern rock and hip hop influences,  even quoting a piano riff from the Doors song " L. Woman ". The blend of country and trap caught the attention of producer Jimmy Iovine who re-released the album on Interscope.

Country music and hip-hop have long vacillated between looking to each other for inspiration and staring at each other warily. Here are 29 examples that run the gamut: Billboard chart-toppers and anthems from insular microscenes; shiny, opportunistic pop collaborations and mud-soaked obscurities; novelty records and sincere simpatico style unions. Each one, in its own way, shifted the idea of what country-rap comity could sound like. Little surprise that the first time country music directly nodded at hip-hop was with a lightly arched eyebrow. The hip-hop cowboy gold standard from a Harlem hip-hop originator who took a song about around-the-way squabbles and, via a video filmed at a Western theme park in New Jersey and enough cowboy hats for the whole crew, remade it as an ominous outlaw fantasy. He stumbles upon Thug Queen, a horse-stealing, sheriff-killing vagabond, and they team up for adventures out beyond the margins of the law.
And it has been extremely popular on TikTok, the social-video sharing app. In the casual video, the two dance side by side in a parking lot, Wilson taking her cues from Brown, sashaying and spinning and doing the butterfly just a split second behind him. There is, however, one twist to this feel-good story.
The song, which quickly became a meme , is over the top and hilarious but it also slaps. There've been some missteps, sure, but there are also quite a few examples of the two genres coming together seamlessly. Below, I've compiled a somewhat comprehensive list of some of the best "country" rap tunes out there on the internet.
