You might have heard about the website RapGenius when it raised $15 million from Marc Andreessen’s venture firm and thought to yourself that this was a strange investment for the former Netscape founder: a site that allows music fans to annotate rap lyrics. And when the founders announced their intention to launch something called NewsGenius as a way of annotating the news, that probably sounded just as bizarre — especially since the three co-founders enjoy indulging in somewhat sophomoric antics more common to the world of rap.
