E-Tabs

26 years of hip-hop in a dataviz

As you may have noticed we love great data visualization! We’re also rather fond of music. So naturally a dataviz that combines the two is going to catch our eye…

And this dataviz does just that!

Using Billboard’s hot rap songs chart, Polygraph visualises the top 10 hip-hop songs from 1989 to 2015. Not only does it visualise, it’s also a treat for the ears as it plays every hip-hop number one through the years.

Choose the date from the timeline at the bottom, or start from the beginning, each song will play for a length of time depending how long it was number one for.  Or you can search for an artist to see / hear their chart success.
