Some have criticized the term as inaccurate or as a pejorative used to degrade younger rappers,   although some artists have reclaimed the term.

Some have claimed that artists such as Das EFX and Fu-Schnickens rapped in a similar style years before the term was created.

Eventually Lil Pump roused himself and sneaked out the back door. When he finally made it to the stage — joining Smokepurpp, who had been scheduled to go on after him — he was received full-throatedly, rowdily, sweatily. Soon, the front of the room was a royal rumble, sending combatants from the stage to the floor, and some on the floor running for the doors.
