I will go on record to say that Rap Genius is the most ridiculous investment ever, and that it will tank with not a dollar in sight within ten years. If this is the type of startup Andreesen Horowitz are backing away from in B2C I would understand, but this is one of the consumer plays they did invest in. And now the message is that they want to invest in solid consumer startups only. Makes no sense to me.

Rap Genius is on fire (in the good way).

Good luck in jail!

Maybe it's a promo investment, this is something journos can get excited to write about, more so than another ERP or middleware solution.

Nope. We don't do those. It's the real deal. One of the fastest growing consumer properties of all time with huge market opportunity.
