‘Rap Genius’ Changed Its Website Name

The controversial hip-hop lyric and annotation site Rap Genius, who just signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell, has changed its name to Genius,the website announced today.

“Welcome to, the brand-new hub for all the Genius communities (Rap Genius, Rock Genius, Lit Genius, everything),” the site says. “Starting today, ‘Genius’ is the new name of the grand project, born from rap’s rib, to annotate the world.”

Rap Genius is still a part of the company just not the main hub. The change represents the company’s massive growth from hip-hop to other genres of music and literature. The company has grown exponentially since receiving a $15 million venture investment in 2012 and has become a popular stop for rappers when they venture to New York City.
