RapGuide.com is a digital platform that allows any music video to serve as the foundation for a classroom assignment. Teachers run lessons in private spaces accessible only to their own students, who write their responses as annotations attached to the lyrics. These annotations can be a close-reading, subjective response, or a scientific analysis with references. The site also includes resources for students to create their own informative songs and videos, based on Baba’s signature songwriting workshops.
