Who created trap music: Gucci Mane or T.I.?

Gucci Mane and T.I. are rap legends who have contributed to putting trap music on the map, but there is a debate stirring on which rapper created the subgenre. Gucci Mane recently posted a photo on Instagram of himself circa 2005 with a caption that read, "#FBF The day I invented Trap Music." For years, T.I. has claimed he created the sound. Back in 2003, T.I. released his sophomore album, "Trap Muzik." Is T.I. trippin’ or did Gucci forget who really started it all?
