• You don't need to annotate every line! Cleanup Contest Rules/Regulations by Rap Genius 13

There are two reasons for this

  • The more obvious one is that some things don’t need to be broken down! Going back to the first point, if you can’t think of something interesting/good to add to a line, don’t annotate it
  • Try to leave some lines open for others to break down, especially if it’s just 3-4 people on that particular song page. It’s not a bad look to have a few open white lines

• Think of it from the reader's perspective Cleanup Contest Rules/Regulations by Rap Genius 13

When annotating, try and make it something you would enjoy reading. Remember to add relevant images! Very importante ;)

This also relates to the general voice of your annotations, be playful with it and take note of your audience. Someone visiting a Lil Durk song page might not enjoy the same type of annotation as someone visiting an Earl Sweatshirt song page

Ludacris Journey Through My Ears by Tomi Fischer 2

I have this memory of being in my Youth Group van on the way to West Virginia for a basketball camp we were going to help run. I was sitting in the back seat with a few of my friends and we were talking about hip hop and at this time I was super ignorant. I still am pretty ignorant, but this was like no level of knowledge of hip hop. So we were talking and I remember saying, “Yeah, Ludacris is the best rapper like ever” and I said it with such confidence and I remember my friend, who I looked up to dearly, looked at me with such an upset look. I remember him saying, “no, you can’t say that at all” and me thinking damn, I know nothing about hip hop. That was like my first lesson of think before you speak, but also to listen and pay more attention.

That friend subsequently introduced me to Common, Kanye, and Lil Wayne.

Childish Gambino Journey Through My Ears by Tomi Fischer 2

Childish Gambino is actually the artist that lead me to Rap Genius. I remember looking up “Freaks and Geeks” and thinking it was a cool song, but that there were things wrong with the annotations (explanations at the time, RIP)

The first time I ever heard Childish, I remember so clearly, was when one of my friends Tom posted a youtube video as his status on Facebook. It was “New Prince (Crown on the Ground)” and I really did not like it initially (though now I do enjoy it). I’ve found that to be true of a lot of the things I like honestly, initially I don’t like it for whatever reason but then it sticks with me.

I’m a huge fan of CG, some of my favorites by him are “Break”, “Rolling in the Deep (Remix)”, and of course basically the entirety of because the internet
