About

This is a dictionary of hip-hop language.

Word meanings (or senses) are defined & illustrated with examples from rap lyrics. These are ordered chronologically, & below them are maps of the artists' origins.

Artist names, song titles, & map locations are linked. Where I've been able to find them, the lyrics also link to internal rhymes & named entities.
