Rap Genius is a website dedicated to the annotation and interpretation of hip-hop music. The site's purpose is "not to translate rap into 'nerdspeak', but rather to critique rap as poetry." The site relies on user-generated content through a Wikipedia-like format of contribution, where contributors earn "Rap IQ" for interesting annotations. The site also includes a blog and a feature called the Rap Map.
