The rap trivia start-up website has racked up 4 million responses since launching Thursday
The rap trivia site, which aims to find the world’s biggest rap genius, has racked up more than four million responses to its questions since launching last Thursday.
The Rap Test measures players’ recognition with 15-second audio clips of more than 1,000 songs from popular rappers. It provides multiple choice answers and awards points on a time-elapsed basis.
Danny Friday, the 21-year-old coder behind the website, designed The Rap Test to be fun as well as informative: “Our digital culture is quick to simplify rappers’ bodies of work to their latest tours or albums,” Friday said in a statement. “The Rap Test challenges that, using full discographies to emphasize the origins of each artist’s work.”
Engineered to yield worldwide leader boards in rap knowledge while also culling metrics — such as which songs are most commonly confused — The Rap Test currently boasts quizzes for the following artist lineup: Tupac, Kanye West, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Meek Mill.
