Gangsta rap originated here, beginning with 52 Crew, for which Schoolly D rapped. It is pretty much a given that Schoolly D started gangsta rap. See, for ex., Dan DeLuca's column in today's Philadelphia Inquirer, at p. H2. Schoolly D's 1985 single, "P.S.K. What Does it Mean?" stands for "Parkside Killers."
