RapHappy was an online hip-hop community site with social networking aspects that let users record their rap sessions and submit them directly to the website.[1] The site had functionality for collaboration between artists, rating and commenting on submissions, and participating in competitions for the chance to collect cash and other prizes.[1] It was also be used as a self-promotion tool for aspiring musicians, a communication tool for recording private audio messages for friends, or as an artistic medium.[2]

New York City based RapHappy made its debut in September 2007, after winning the MTVu and Cisco sponsored contest 'Digital Incubator'.
