I used a new free and open-source data visualization application called Protovis to make interactive parallel coordinate graphs of the entire catalogs of 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Biggie & Nas through the Hip-Hop Word Count analysis. Jay-Z’s is posted here.

Jazmyn. This visualization shows Year, Word Count, Syllable Count, Poly Syllabic Word Count, Sentence Count, Flesch Scores & SMOG Scores for all of Jay-Z’s songs. Flesch & SMOG are readability algorithms that estimate what education level is needed to understand each song.
