Our love of opening sentences in literature around here at p3 is a matter of record.
But this kind of takes it to the next level: 18 famous literary first lines paired with rap lyrics, accomplished with the help of a rap lyric rhyming site. (Of course there is such a thing! Why would there not be such a thing?)
I feel it doesn't manage to hurt the literature, although I'm not sure it really helps the rap, either. See what you think.
