In 2009, after a day spent debating the meaning of a Cam’ron lyric, three Yale undergraduates created Rap Exegesis, a Wikipedia-like site where users could annotate hip hop lyrics.
Today the site is called Rap Genius (it’s easier to spell), attracts more than 10 million unique visitors a month, and features verified users like Nas, RZA, and Common.
It’s also safe to say the site’s founders are unlike anyone else in the startup scene – that’s why we’re breaking with tradition and running our interview with Rap Genius co-founder Mahbod Moghadam in full. Because it’s fantastically insane.
Moghadam talked to Editor Guy Cimbalo on the phone from U.C. Berkeley, where he was about to deliver a talk to students. We suspect you’re going to like this.
