We didn’t even explain anything to him, Annotating Human Culture: An interview with the creators of Rap Genius by Aaron Z. Lewis (Ft. Dan Berger, Mahbod Moghadam & Tom Lehman)

The irony of starting off by NOT explaining, to your very 1st investor, the dynamics of a start-up that’s all about Explaining Text, is the GENIUS strategy that has catapulted RapGenius into the realm of unlimited possibilities and attract avant-garde daredevils such as the Supreme Knowledge Of RapGenius (sk.oRG). _ƨҟ↻འġ™ (score)

I was running out of money and I had been fired. Annotating Human Culture: An interview with the creators of Rap Genius by Aaron Z. Lewis (Ft. Dan Berger, Mahbod Moghadam & Tom Lehman)

I remember a very pivotal phone conversation between myself and Mahbod (ika Maboo), where he suggested I get a job and take a 6 month hiatus from RG. Well, the result of that convo was acquiring this job, and getting fired from this job for being on RapGenius on my mobile phone during work hours, lol. Now I’m still here 1 year & 6 more months later trying to make a dollar out of 15 lines. #LinesOfWork
