What exactly makes that "boom bap" style in hip hop? I think I have an idea of it but I dont know how to explain it. I do know when I hear the drums in that style it just so addicting to listen to and inspires me to incorporate that kind of style into drumming because its got a lot of groove. But yeah any examples though, and also would these be consider as boom bap style?

I wasn't even aware such a style existed.

The bass drum then the snare.

Just listened to the tracks. Bass then snare.

A style of hip hop signified by a hard bass drum and snapping snare that is often EQed to the forefront of the beat. Definition of Boom bap.

It could be a drum machine. You just hit the kick and snare right after. Usually the snare comes right after the bass kicks.

Crab Core> Boom Bap

where the hell do these Sub-Genres get their names? honestly

Boom bap isn't a sub genre. It's a style.

I was thinking since probably most of the "boom bap" style used drum machines, would play on a actual drum set sound a lot better especially for hard kick drum and snares?

The first link sounded like really slow breaks (boom chat-boom, boom-chat). It's a hella catchy dance beat used in breaks and DnB, mostly, though everything uses it some.

Where the top line is snare, bottom is bass..... It's pretty easy to put in a drum beat and to variate from.

So, I was thinking since probably most of the "boom bap" style used drum machines, would play on a actual drum set sound a lot better especially for hard sounding kick drums and snares? And yeah SteveHouse that kinda beat is real catchy!
