Procrastination Nation – Rap Map of New York!

24 Aug

I’m a few days late on this one, but it was just too good to let slip through my fingers into blog purgatory. Rap Genius, an interactive site dedicated to deciphering and untangling hip-hop lyrics, has released possibly one of the most brilliant time-wasting tools in the history of the internet: The Rap Map.

This gem of procrastination points out New York landmarks mentioned in rap songs, from Sparks Steakhouse (Cam’ron, “Welcome to New York City”) to the 40 Houses (Nas, “Queens Get the Money”), Bronx to BK, Shaolin, Uptown, Downtown, and Queens.
