Understand Rap was created to help people understand rap lyrics.

Some lyrics and explanations on the site may seem obvious, but many people do not understand some of the references to culture, history, people, and events that others take for granted. Since music is an art form, lyrics are open to interpretation. Therefore, multiple explanations for lyrics from different perspectives are encouraged. With a greater understanding of lyrics, the genre as a whole can grow and be appreciated and accepted by people all over the world who like the music they hear but are confused or curious because they just don't understand rap.

Anyone can add an artist, album, song, or lyric to Understand Rap, but only people who sign up can add explanations. If you don't want to add anything, you can still look around at explanations other people have added for confusing rap lyrics. You can browse the newest explanations for lyrics, or you can see lyrics that need explanations. You can support Understand Rap by adding us on Facebook, or following us on Twitter. You can also help us out by using the contact form to let us know about a problem or to give us a suggestion.
