Ever wonder who the best rapper ever is? Who used the phrase 'On Fleek' first? Who rap's favorite basketball player is? Which sneaker is more hip-hop: Adidas or Nike?
The Rap Research Lab is a studio for teens to explore art, data visualization graphic design and the stats behind Beats, Rhymes & Life in a creative environment.
No previous art or technology experience needed!
