Hip-Hop Word Count: What If You Could Search the Lyrics of 40,000 Hip Hop Songs?

A sample entry.

Tahir Hemphill has launched a Kickstarter fundraising drive for an interesting new project he's working on. It's called the Hip-Hop Word Count, and its aim is to allow you to search through the lyrics of over 40,000 hip-hop songs released between 1979 and the present. But more than just allowing you to find out which artist said what, it will also allow you to synthesize and visualize data according to the era, location, frequency, and types of lyrics used.
