A lot is getting accomplished on the Hip-Hop Word Count – an ethnographic database built from 30 years of Hip-Hop content. Most has been on the hush but I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the development in order to get your feedback on my prototyping.

This video is the result of converting rapper geographical data (City/State/County/Country) into their respective geo coordinates and using those as input for Google Earth.

Trying to disprove the hypothesis that living in higher altitudes creates a natural inclination for gangster rap – a joke
