Rhythm, Rhyme, Results, LLC was founded in 2006 and is located in Cambridge, MA.

When combined with music, lyrics embed themselves into our memory in a fundamentally different—and sometimes more enduring—manner than text alone. Our contemporary twist helps students remember important concepts by transforming them into memorable rap lyrics and combining them with thumping hip-hop tracks. We value the ability of music, specifically hip-hop music, to transcend social contexts.
