Genius is an online knowledge project that breaks down information with line-by-line annotations, added and edited by anyone in the world. The Genius knowledge project began with Rap Genius, a website for annotating rap lyrics, and eventually expanded to all genres of music, as well as literature, news, history, sports, movies, and technology.
