Study Claims Hip-Hop Has The Broadest Vocabulary In Music

Science has suggested that hip-hop might be the most literate music genre. A study conducted by lab.mixmatch surveyed over 15 thousand songs by the most popular artists making heavy metal, folk, country, rock, indie, pop, hip-hop and—yes—electronic music. Out of some 3 million words, researchers concluded that the genre making the most of its lexical skills is hip-hop, closely followed by metal. Electronic music came in last, but there’s nothing wrong with being beyond words. Check out the comprehensive findings here.
