    Several years ago, like around the time of Magna Carta, Kendricks first 2 albums, so on & so forth, Rap Genius was a staple. They rarely had lyrical errors or misheard lyrics and they had lyrics up before anybody.

    Now, you go on there and it's kinda trash. Even seems like some of the older lyrics annotations & explanations have been removed:what:. On top of that, the new songs often have error and very few annotations. Like someone who is doing them doesn't speak English as a first language.

    It used to be a really fun tool just for reading what other interpretations other hip hop fans had for lyrics other than your own.
