1. East coast: this refers to New York; some of the notable singers were Rakim, Big Daddy and Run-D.M.C. As a result of there efforts east coast became popular nation wide.

2. West Coast: in the mid 1980s west coast got its popularity against East Coast rap. Some of there notable singers were Too Short and Ice Tea.

3. Ghetto Mafia was partly responsible for influencing rap in the south. This came after both the west and east coasts had their success.

4. Gangsta Rap: there is a little bit of confusion about the singer who brought gangsta rap on a national level. Some people think that it was Ice Tea while others say it was N.W.A who took this rap on a national level.

There are other types of rap music like Pop Rap, Jazz Rap, Christian Rap, Electro Hip hop and Conscious Rap. They all have emerged after 1980s and till now they have became popular all around the US.
