Datamining Hip-Hop’s History
BY DUNCAN GEERE 02.20.11

An artist named Tahir Hemphill wants to datamine 30 years of hip-hop lyrics to provide a searchable index of the genre’s lexicon.

The project analyzes the lyrics of over 40,000 songs for metaphors, similes, cultural references, phrases, memes and socio-political ideas.

The idea is so that important questions can be answered, like who was the first to mention “haters,” or which is the most popular champagne/sneakers/porn star to rap about? The database can also be used to determine the answers to more complex questions, such as which rapper has the smartest songs, or which city spawns the most monosyllabic rap?


BACK IN THE DAY |12/20/69| James Brown’s Funky Drummer was recorded. The Clyde Stubblefield break is the most sampled break in hip hop. 

Who would have thought Sinead O’ Connor sampled it? A fantastic chart here.

We’ve all had them and they are easy to deal with. Just deliver the final product on the second meeting with a massive logo, the copy in comic sans and its all sweet.
