Rap Genius is one of those website where visitors either find it to be useful, or have an extreme deep disdain for it. In their attempt to become the Wikipedia of Cliff’s Notes, their affinity for open-sourcing has led to many a wrecked interpretation of various song lyrics. In its earlier days, the annotations were so off that one couldn’t even tell if they were talking about the actual subject at hand.
Like Ice Cube before him, T.I. was invited to the Genius offices to respond to some of the footnotes left behind on some of his popular songs: “Whatever You Like,” “Project Steps” (from his recent release Da Nic), “Why You Wanna, “Swagga Like Us,” “About The Money” and others Tip’s in full #TICoding mode (any time he wears glasses that seems to happen), while expounding upon lyrics on “Swagga Like Us…”
… “Why You Wanna…”
… “About The Money…”
… and “Whatever You Like.”
They should’ve never gave you people Internet access.
