    There is no "standard" tempo, but it helps to think in "half-time." That means that the backbeat you create at 180 bpm works out to be more like 90 bpm practically.

    Its true.

    Its simple math bro.

    70BPM and 140BPM is the same thing.
    You will have to use 16th notes on 70BPM
    instead of 8th notes in 140BPM to get the same sound.

    This doesn't apply to trap music much but when you're using Swing it may matter to you,
    but it also depends on the software you are using.

    Its all numbers tho

    Generally around 140bpm, but it varies a lot. Trap has spiraled into a million subgenres and it really depends, just go with whatever feels right.
