Satirical hip hop is a genre of hip hop done in a sarcastic, parodic or tongue in cheek way.

Satirical hip hop has been around since at least the mid 1990s.

Well known satirical rappers of the 2010s include Odd Future and Tyler the Creator, Lil B, Yung Lean , Riff Raff, Lil Dicky, Mix-Master Ketchup, 3Pac and Riffi Rack.

Characteristics

Satirical hip hop in many ways is a parody and a criticism of the gangsta rap that dominated music throughout the 1990s and 2000s. Tyler the Creator's song "Come Through Looking Clean", released as a joke under the name Young Nigga, is a parody of the glam rap popular during the latter decade.
