The trick here is to find a set if speakers that won't take up much space...but the bass must be suitable for rap music.
You're just not going to find this. If you want big bass, you need big speakers (large driver for moving air and and large box/bent for low octave bass.
The best I can recommend for speakers without subwoofer are the Yamaha HS8 studio monitors. If he's willing to spend more, the Adam A8x might be a good choice. Both have large vented woofers for lower bass (but they still will not equal a subwoofer). They are larger speakers. You are just not going to get a small speaker that has "club levels of bass".
I've guided him to the M-Audio BX4 4.5
He doesn't care about Bluetooth anymore.
There are knobs on the back of the active speaker for High - Low frequency control (-6 db to + 6db). Based on previous listening tests I've had with M-Audio speakers, I find them to be fairly linear sounding and sometimes warm (in a good way.) Overall, a brand that can offer a solid value to folks who don't want to spend too much.
Ok, to blend a cheap solution and an expensive one together. He's a kid so , get a Klipsch pro media pretty damn good for $120 comes with a 3.5 jack you can pipe in a feed via a dragonfly DAC $50 -$100-$300 they have three to choose from there all ok , I have the $300 cobalt its OK specialy for what your doing. Set that up first then call SVS and get the biggest sub you can afford with the money you have left out of the outlet bargain section, they have warranty and a trade up program. you will need an apple pigtail im assuming he has an apple devise $30 and a 3.5 to 3.5 couple bucks , and the pro media comes with a power sub to and its ok but the svs will get you there pb2000 im thinking should do it.
i have the pro media with the cobalt in my Mac Pro going into my mac pro and stream my Tidal right in I wanted a cheap solution with big sound.you can also look into the SVS computer speakers $600 its a step up then you dont get any sub and need a dedicated one anyway. im happy with my cpu setup I have a main system if I want to get blown away
