What Does Gnat Mean In Rap? (EXPLAINED)

Gnats are insects often flying in swarms. While not directly dangerous, gnats are considered to be harmful and pests to common folks. However, what does it mean in rap?

Gnat was made popular by Eminem very recently with his single “Gnat.” It is a popular rap song that topped many charts. It discusses the pandemic and COVID-19 virus.

“Have you heard Eminem’s Gnat? It is straight-up legit!”

However, gnat may also be used to describe something that is very much annoying and persistent but no matter what you try, you can’t kill it. It is derogatory because you are comparing something to an insect that just won’t let you be. 

“Mr. Cole is a gnat. He won’t let me go for something that happened a long time ago.”
