    based on the analysis I have done it is the Phrygian minor mode if we take the chord progression to be i-bII,
    eg. Em7-Fmaj7, with the scale being E-F-G-A-B-C-D-E

    this is true of 95% of all the trap I have analysed (use search bandcoach trap justice league j.u.s.t.i.c.e. trap to get a handle on chords used in some trap)
