It's not like it's just people on internet forums discussing them, they're getting love from a mainstream audience too.
The term meme rap started getting used on /mu/ as a way to troll hip hop fans and disrupt hip hop discussion. Kinda like how the term fedoracore made it impossible to talk about trip hop or anything jazzy without being made fun of.

I'd say meme rap isn't a bad description for stuff like Lil B, Riff Raff, Yung Lean, Kitty Pryde, etc. and to a lesser extent A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown, and Odd Future.
