RapGenius named “Most Innovative Company” in 2013, annotate the King James Bible

By ,

Lyric annotation website, RapGenius have been named the “Most Innovative Company” in music in Fast Company‘s 2013 list of forward-thinking companies.

The site, which allows bloggers to post specific meanings to specific lines of songs, beat Spotify to the top spot (who came runner-up in second place).

Somewhat more bizarrely, RapGenius have also announced that they are beginning to annotate the whole of the 1611 King James Bible.

The hip-hop website posted the following message in a blog post about the project:

??? BC: World created

??? BC: Adam and Eve get saucy

??? BC: Jacob beefs with an angel

??? BC: Great Flood

??? BC: Great Flood ends. God: “You know it’s all about the love, I don’t know why I’m being this aggressive”

0 AD: JESUUUUUS

1517 AD: Martin Luther nails diss track to a church door

2012 AD: Pusha T releases “Exodus 23:1″

2013 AD: THE RAP GENIUS BIBLE
