Rap Genius Raises $40m For Move Into Literature And More

Posted at 5:15PM Monday 14 Jul 2014

US startup Rap Genius made its name with a website for hip-hop fans to explain the lyrics of their favourite tracks, before expanding to provide similarly-crowdsourced annotations for poetry, rock songs and news stories.

Now the company has raised $40m in funding to fuel further expansion into pop music, history, literature, sports, television and films, rebranding itself as Genius to match its wider focus.
