Introduction

There is rap, and then there is alternative rap. It is a subgenre of the once underground musical genre of rap/hip-hop, and it is unique as it encompasses a variety of styles and themes that are usually not found in mainstream music. Alternative rappers refuse to conform to the societal rules and the rules of rap. They do not care about gangsta or party rap, and instead intertwine their music with soul, jazz, reggae, and even folk elements, creating a new genre of music. Alternative rap developed in the late 1980s and is still going on, and some of the most notable acts are Arrested Development and the Fugees.

Alternative Rap Dog Name Considerations

As a fan of alternative rap, you know that the industry is full of amazing musicians who deserve recognition, but probably do not have it due to the uniqueness of their music. Mainstream is not friendly towards experimental artists who mesh various styles and themes together, so these fantastic musicians may never achieve the levels of fame their more mainstream colleagues have. However, as a true fan, you are spreading their music to your surroundings, and one of the ways to do that is to name your pupper after one of the iconic alternative rap artists.

One of the alternative rappers whose name you can give to your dog is K’naan or Keinan Abdi Warsame, a Somali-Canadian poet turned rapper, or Shing02, a Japanese rapper whose real name is Shingo Annen. One alternative hip hop artist who managed to break into the mainstream is an English musician M.I.A, whose real name is Mathangi Arulpragasam. Another famous duo is OutKast, with members André 3000 (Andre Lauren Benjamin) and Big Boi, aka Antwan Andre Patton. Your dog can bear the name of the gangsta rapper Snoop Dogg, or Warren G, or one of the members of the iconic group N.W.A.
