Here’s a project I wish I thought of first. (Actually, I did around the time that I dreamed up this site a few years back but not to this extent.) Here’s the premise, they take song lyrics and analyze them by date, region content and a whole lot of other things. Then you can find out things such as who was the first artist to product place a shoe or how long did it take for the word shorty (showdy or showdee depending on where you are from) to be used across the coast.
It’s has a lot of promise and I hope that it exceeds its funding or if it doesn’t continue to look for funding because I really like this project. It’s good to see a creative way of using Hip Hop that isn’t being utilized anywhere else. I’m sure there will be others that will come along and still this idea and use it in other forms of music but I hope it’s this project that spins off into other genres.
Pledge you support today as there are only a few more days left to donate. There are incentives depending on how much you donate from chocolates to beta or lifetime access to the site. I’ll be pledging my support because every dollar counts!
