Ben Horowitz of a16z just invested in Rap Genius

a16z is cool venture capital company that invests in 150 portfolio companies. They had invested in a couple of my favorite sites, such as Pinterest, Quirky and Fab also invested in this site as well). But the latest site, Rap Genius, is what I am interested in. I am interested in two folds, partly for the feature of annotations, and relations to law studies (statute and case law):

Check out this Yale University Press published book, The Anthology of Rap. I just bought a copy myself for an awesome project.

I picked up this book at the NYPL Live event when I was fortunate enough to see Def Jam present this book. I even had it autographed... Woot! Woot! If you like Beastie Boys and Public Enemy, read this book. Check out some of the cover albums and screenshots of videos:

Def Jam Recordings: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label
by Def Jam, Bill Adler, Dan Charnas and Rick Rubin (Oct 11, 2011)

One of my favorite rap artists is Eminem, check him out on VEVO:

This video is cute, Eminem is going back to high school:

Check out this cool song by Taylor Swift reappropriate Eminem's "Lose Yourself:"

If you like a jazzier rap, check out: Kendrick Lamar - Poetic Justice (Live on SNL). This looks pretty interesting, anything with Saturday Night Live (SNL) is awesome, also on VEVO:
