Okay, this site dead. I personally blame Justin Linker.

Have anyone heard of a site called RapGenius.com? Its a pretty huge site. Its forum is like Amazon.com in 2007. Maybe even more buzzing. I mainly post there . No sense staying here and constantly kicking a dead dog. I still got love for this place,though. On Rapgenius people actually respond to your threads. Hey, they actually made me an Editor there. Still dont know what that title means. That site actually has a staff that interviews real rappers

What's your name on there Kev? Mine's the same and same pic. Did you join Jeff? There is def a diff crowd on there, including some douche that loves Lil B but I think it's refreshing to have some new perspectives and topics. This forum is better organized tho, and I like the way this forum has stickies for recurring topics.

I agree with Trotter. Let's take that bitch over. There's a lot of new school lovers over there, like that Lil B clown I mentioned. I just commented on a favorite albums thread and someone actually said Drake's Take Care...holy jeebus.

Yeah we have more than double the record for members we had a year ago... I guess they all think this is a downloading forum or some shit

I was accused of necrophilia after I logged in Sad Thats how dead this place is. But who am I to complain, I don't post so often.

By the way, I think it's funny to post Chief Keef video after saying "real rappers". That doesn't make that forum look good at all, lol.

This has to be sarcasm, right? I don't always get along with Kevin, but I'll be the first to admit he's pretty much the heart & soul of this place lately. The only one putting in work..,

Yeah, Kev is pretty much the only one keeping this site going.

After a few days of RapGenius, I'm already tired of it. I'll probably still post there from time to time but its just too unorganized. There are new threads every day, which could be a good thing, but there are too many overall and too many that are wack. It sucks to have to sift through a long ass list to find the one thread you want to comment on. And fuck email notifications, that gets out of hand. I really don't care about explaining rap lyrics either, which is what the site is really all about. I understand the lyrics so I could give a fuck about other people's explanations.

HH4L needs to wake up, tho!!!

Kev puts in a huge amount of work doing those polls, but the site needs more than the album polls to hold it up... Now that it's gotten past the classic albums/era's, it's died off.

Admittedly, I do not post often enough either. But for Mr Lion King, there are no excuses.

Yeah, Im getting tired of it too. I already lost my editoralship for no reason. One of the mods say that my explanations wasn't good enough. Well, why in the fuck did they make me editor in the first place? And get this....only Editors cans participate in live chat. WTF? Like Live chat is some sort of privilege. RG gimmick is you must explain rap lyrics of songs. In a completely different section they have a lot of songs loaded up and the lyrics print out. You highlight a line then explain what it means...but truthfully you can never really know what a rappers means.

For instance a Killah Priest line "I blow on trees like winter"

Theres so many ways to dicipher this. It could mean Priest is smoking weed. But wait , Priest dont smoke weed--well he never made lrics about weed. It could mean Priest is just so long winded. RapGenius already got slammed for its statement to make you know what lyrics mean.

But lets focus on the forum. Well, I cant get mad at its ability to attract Hip Hop listeners of all types. If this site had a 1000 ACTIVE users best believe were gonna deal with some punk-asses. A lot people at RG are bedroom rappers always posting their shit. We have a lot of aspiring artist posting their shit too. But they never post, same as RG. But RG always have give the dude feedback whether positive or negative. We tend not to give any feedback at all. We need to give these guys feedback. But people need to wack up around here and get some convos going.

Im sorry but Tic is biased as all fuck... He's too anal with his polls (lmao) anyway that 2000 best album shit still gets me heated when I think about it. Maybe I'm emotional but I was on here very often until he decided to take a dump on Soundbombing and Made Men, 2 albums with great reviews which I hold very dear. But it's whatever now... At least we ain't talking about Drake in this bitch lol

He entered the forum, but a nameless bum,
Didn't even make a post, nope, not even one.
A zero contributor, indeed very lame,
Yet here he is spoken of, with some kind of fame.
Some said he's just quiet, a rumour spread that he'd died,
But I saw him last week, at Kentucky Chicken Fried.
Still he remains a mystery, both to lion and man,
With no courage to post, not even a spam.
The movie cover you seen it, The Man Without A Post?
Making money off this forum, when he post less than most.
So enough is enough, this "cat" needs to chill,
Time to sue his ass like Finesse did Mac Mill !!

I regret creating this thread now. From the time I created this thread to now RapGenius has spiraled out of control. Sure the place is popular but its bombarded with trolls. The site just attracts too many fuckin' immature kids. Not to mention its becoming a pop bopper haven. They literally mention the same rappers over and over : OddFuture, Lil B, Kendrick Lamar,Ab-Soul, Emenim ,Mac Miller and maintream tyrants like Kanye. There are some true heads there but I dont see them post as much anymore they got tired of that place too, I hate to see that place in 6 months. yeah, their range of rappers are terrible. One guy started a thread on Billy Woodz and Im the only one that replied. nickey
