The "rap map" helps teachers and students to map out the residences of hip-hop/ rappers that have come out of the New York City area. This is not a complete map of all hip-hop artist from NYC, but it is a great start. Maybe you and your students can make a map that represents your city and state's development of hip-hop...
If you want to learn more about the terrain of hip-hop you should take a moment to create a list of hip-hop artist from your area and plot them out on a map of your area. Post and share with us, and we will give you credit. The Rap Map, created by rap lyric explanation website Rap Genius.
