Word up

The Rap Dictionary, "the oldest and ultimate resource for looking up hip-hop slang," has gone wik-wik-Wiki! Kinda slow-loading right now, so when only the background was up I thought Wikipedia had commandeered my browser.

This is cool. I don't usually listen to rap, but since I've been playing GTA: San Andreas, I've been exposed to quite a bit more of it and so this thesaurus of rap is very helpful.

(A thesaurus to a librarian is more like a controlled vocabulary. Quoth OED: A classified list of terms, esp. key-words, in a particular field, for use in indexing and information retrieval.)

I thought 187 was the police code for murder, but now I see that it's the California penal code section for murder. Very interesting.
