Gangsta rap became ironic when the man who invented it began a movie and television career playing nothing but police officers.
It became ironic when it's most successful producer's biggest asset is a white kid who complains about how terrible his mom is.
It became ironic when it's toughest AK wielding badazz started doing "wife and kids" film and television.
It became ironic when the narcotic of choice went from a plant grown in rugged regions of the world to a beverage made with cough syrup and Jolly Ranchers.
Gangsta rap was once relevant. A long time ago.
