Rap Map: Mapping Lyrical Content
The project from Rap Genius chronicles who said what about where in the often hyper-local world of hip-hop.
The Rap Map is a Google Map powered website brought to us by the people behind the Rap Genius Blog. It’s premise is to analyse the lyrics of hip-hop and then map notable places and locations contained therein. The project is in it’s nascent stages and as a result many notable cities with proud heritage within the genre such as Baltimore and Washington (at the time of writing) are not represented.
