Using Old Town Road as one example of what's rap for the kids. They have recently become aware of the concept of musical genres and so are constantly asking after the genre of various songs.

This is a hard conversation for me to have because, like, Queen is "rock" or whatever, but also has wild-ass orchestral bits or choral amazingness. And even Old Town Road is a blend of genres. But the kids want it to be very clear cut. Because kids. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️
