The blending of these two genres is quite prevalent in today’s music scene. However, one common mistake made by many underground rap artists is that they are overly focused on being what they consider “real” or “gangsta.”

It seems that they are more concerned with portraying a tough image than with marketing their records and making money. Consequently, they only use hard-hitting and “gangsta” sounding beats, and their lyrics revolve around themes of violence and crime.

Typically in the UK, we often consider Maplins as a reference for amplifiers and compare them with this Behringer budget option. It would be unfair to make a direct comparison based on those higher-end brands. The Behringer Europower EP1500 is a perfect fit for someone who is on a tight budget but still needs a good amount of power.

Behringer certainly aims to please the discerning ears of skilled musicians. The bass end of the device is well-balanced, delivering just the right amount of vibrations per second. However, it’s the high end that has always been a concern.
