Rap lyrics mapped

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 20, 2010

The Rap Map plots locations mentioned in rap songs on Google Maps. For instance:

Back in the late 90s, Club New York was one of the hottest clubs in the city, even though it sounds like some sort of fictional club in the direct-to-DVD Night at the Roxbury 2

Then, one wintry evening in 1999, Diddy, J-Lo, and Shyne were at the club when all hell broke loose. Guns were pulled, women were shot in the face, and when all the dust settled, Shyne and Diddy were on trial at Manhattan Criminal Court

Diddy was acquitted, while Shyne was sent to prison for 9 years.
