Google Maps Introduces “Hip Hop Lyrics”

For those of you who may not be aware of Google Maps, it is a free web based app that offers its users the accessibility to find street maps and route planners for travelling by foot, car and public transport. But now Google Maps has introduced a new web app “Google Places” that allows the user to find a certain place, for example, restaurant, bar, museum, attractions and ATM’s, anything in fact, and the app will pinpoint your chosen destination by puttng placemarks down. Along with this the placemarks are mentioned in hip hop lyrics.

According to Samuel Axon at Mashable, features alongside the new hip hop lyrics include an inside story behind each place and the song that named it. Its called the “The Rap Map”, and surprisingly it seems to be making a name for itself in New York City, one of the birthplaces of hip hop.

Will this start a new trend with its competitors? For now, we will have to wait and see.
