Rapalytics

Text mining can be applied on rap lyrics.

Today I attended an event organized by Data Science MD Meetup Group, a talk titled “Lose Yourself in Rapalytics,” by Abhay, a PhD student in University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). Rapalytics is an online tool analyzing raps.

It is another task of text mining and natural language processing. He mentioned a few common tools. However, he also specifically looked at rhymes (as rhyme is an important element of rap lyrics), and profanity (as rap music is commonly, or stereotypically, dirty).
