Billboard Hip Hop Chart Visualized 1989-2015

I enjoy a great work of visualization and this interactive data graph by Polygraph charting the top 10 Billboard hip hop hits from 1989-2015 is phenomenal. The number one song in the list plays until it is supplanted by the next number one chart-topping song.

For someone like me who grew up in the 90’s and listened to the golden age of rap music, this graph is a very enjoyable walk down memory lane conjuring up mental images of high school, college and enjoyable times thereafter.  I can pinpoint where I surrendered my knowledge of mainstream hip hop as it ceded to the tastes of a younger generation (around 2011). Enjoy the link:
