I have dreamed of a product like this existing for years and it's finally here. 21-year-old Danny Friday created The Rap Test to crowdsource the world's biggest rap fans: the site plays snippets of tracks from one artist and users race to identify the title before the clock runs out. The quicker you answer, the more points you get, and the higher you go the more obscure the tracks get. FADER's resident rap nerds got to Level 9 of the Kanye Test and started freezing up when it dipped into B-sides from the Freshman Adjustment mixtapes. It's fun, fast, and highly addictive if you're a rap nerd: test your knowledge of catalogues from Kanye, Jay-Z, Drake, Meek Mill, Eminem & Kendrick Lamar and say goodbye to productivity for the rest of the afternoon.
