Graphing H-Town Rap

Inspired by Rob Harvilla’s mathematical dissertation on Mims’s “This Is Why I’m Hot,” and the similar exercises in graphed hip-hop here, I decided to try my hand at graphing some H-Town rap classics. I hope you enjoy them.

"You Don't Know," Paul Wall, with Bun B

"The Game Belongs to Me," UGK

"Mind Playing Tricks on Me," Geto Boys

"Trigga Happy Nigga," Geto Boys

If you want to play, you can make some rudimentary pie charts and bar graphs at this site.

Send them to Keith Plocek as a PDF, and we’ll post them on here. I will send the winner a prize. – John Nova Lomax
