FILED UNDER: The Genius of Rap Genius
If you haven’t heard of Rap Genius yet, take notice, because this site, run by a group of young foul-mouthed Yale graduates, is definitely on the brink of exploding. And now with a $15 million investment from Andreessen Horowitz the boys are perfectly positioned to bring their vision of annotating the web to reality. The site lets you search rap lyrics and decipher the meaning behind obscure references and metaphors, and soon there are plans to expand that content beyond hip hop and into everything from the Bible to the Declaration of Independence. We are as excited about their expansion as we are about their crazy outfits and antics.
