"Time to stop texting like a basic b---" is the tagline for a new app. called RapKey. The innovative mobile messaging platform, allows users to send pre-loaded rap lyrics to their friends, instead of ordinary responses.
Just think about all the times, a 2 Chainz' lyric made sense to send to someone you were texting. Now, there's an extensive database of popular hip-hop phrases and lyrics at your fingertips.
Jonah Kaner, a Babson college student, created the app. because he was constantly messaging rap lyrics to his friends and family to lighten up their conversations. Kaner linked with a classmate, Ativ Katel, to get RapKey coded and functional and last month, it hit iTunes' app. store.
Forget about your emojis -- RapKey is compatible with iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Yik Yak and just about any program that utilizes a keyboard. Not only is it currently free, but it's constantly updated and anyone can submit lyrics to use via the website.
Kaner, recently shared with a Boston-based tech website that his favorite lyric to use at the moment is: Kenrick Lamar's "It go Halle Berry or hallelujah.”
