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.
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:
- Ken Jennings at TEDxSeattleU: Watson, Jeopardy and me, the obsolete know-it-all
- David Anderson at TEDxCalTech: Your brain is more than a bag of chemicals
- Leslie Morgan Steiner at TEDxRainier: Why domestic violence victims don’t leave
- Dan Ariely at TEDxRiodelaPlata: What makes us feel good about our work?
- Thomas Insel at TEDxCaltech: Toward a new understanding of mental illness
- Juan Enriquez at TEDxSummit: Will our kids be a different species?
- James B. Glattfelder at TEDxZurich: Who controls the world?
We know what Beyoncé would say to that last one — "Girls."
