In the course of this very long video, Mahbod Moghadam describes Rap Genius in the following ways:

  • "A collective robot, you know?"
  • "The Stalinist Russia of the internet, but in a good way"
  • Facebook's "sister"
  • "The cocaine of apps, the cocaine of websites"
  • "A poem that God has written"
  • "The most important thing is my baby, so we're going have to get the baby to IPO city, so it's going to be a couple of years away and then what's the ticker gonna be? You know, like RAPG, RG, maybe just RAP, that would be pretty good."
  • "Basically a cathedral"
  • "The biggest site, the biggest phenomenon on the entire internet"
