No, Trap came from "TRAP" music. Mostly southern rap stuff like Young Jeezy, Ross, Gucci Mane. The genre was created to mimic the same drum patterns and sounds such as the 808 subs, claps, snare rolls but with a electronic music twist.
The thing with dubstep is that it's gone so mainstream, it's become watered down. It's almost a joke now. I mean, Justin Beiber's new album is full of dubstep based beats. A lot of artists which started out as dubstep producers are now incorporating more and more trap in their sets.
