The latest and greatest badass thing someone is doing with Google Maps, the interactive NYC Music Map drops pins on alllllll the spots that famous artists have sung/rapped/nasally shout-talked (looking at you, Dylan) about for the better part of the last century.
Started by Constantine Valhouli -- of real estate developing, fake Jack Kerouac folklore pranking, and dudes-whose-names-are-superior-to-yours fame -- the map already has more than 200 pins dropped around the five boroughs, and all of them link you to a YouTube video of the song in question. The coolest part, though? You can suggest your own favorite NYC-name-dropping song just by sending an email with your ideas (HINT: there are only two Nas-related pins at the moment, so get to work).
