Welcome.

The Rap Almanac Database is a “big data” cultural research platform built around the cataloging, transcription and linguistic analysis of approximately 1,000,000 rap songs. The database provides sophisticated critical analysis tools that allow users to discover and track the emergence, distribution and circulation of ideas, references and concepts as they appear in rap lyrics from 1979 to today.

The Rap Almanac Database is a project of the Rap Research Lab, a community-based creative technology studio that uses a Hiphop framework to develop new ways for people to engage with music, data and culture. For more information visit us here
