The Rap Map is responsible for "Mapping the Gangsta Terrain of the Planet," -- a difficult task involving listening to numerous songs, watching many movies and doing lots of research. This map has to be the most culturally informative I have ever seen.

The Rap Map can simply be a fun way to lose a couple of hours, taking you from one rapper's childhood home to another rapper's regular stores.

Implications - The crazy thing about the Rap Man is how seeing how many rappers come from a certain area, which explains their rap style, slang and influences. It also hammers home the importance of a strong local rap community in the development of a rapper. And it makes it even MORE impressive when a rapper is able to rise to the top without a strong local community.
