Almost as good as Kanye West on Twitter — TEDx makes it onto Rap Genius


Rap Genius, cheekily defined as "your guide to the meaning of rap lyrics… and LIFE, is a platform where anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can analyze the lyrics of the hip-hop greats from the Notorious B.I.G. to Jay-Z  to Eazy-E.

Much like Wikipedia, Rap Genius is an open-source encyclopedia, with users analyzing the meaning behind lyrics old and new. But now there’s something new on Rap Genius — only a tad different than Snoop Lion or Ice T — TEDx Talks.

If you’ve ever wanted to add insight to understanding mental illness, finding happiness at work, or — even — the evolution of the human species, you ought to check out the TEDx Talks on the site. 

There are currently 7 talks on the site, but we hope to see more, so pause the Bel Biv Devoe, take a break from your Drake or Frank Ocean or Destiny’s Child, and analyze some TEDx Talks.

The run-down on Rap Genius:

We know what Beyoncé would say to that last one — "Girls."
