Genius (formerly Rap Genius) breaks down text with line-by-line annotations, added and edited by anyone in the world. It's your interactive guide to human culture.
Genius layers annotations over the text itself, enabling you to answer them as you read. Whenever you’re confused by or interested in a passage, you can click it to read an annotation that explains in plain language what you’re reading and why it’s important.
Texts on Genius are living documents. Over time, they transform into definitive guides as people just like you from around the world add bits of knowledge to them.
There is no single genius who writes all the annotations—anyone can contribute. Genius is powered by the community, and that’s what makes it special.
