Off lyrics alone I'm a legend  
But I can't take credit, the English language was not my invention  
It's the way I put it together  
The incorrect English editor  
Can't nobody ever do it better

The Wikipedia of hip-hop lyrics. Listeners contribute and may be edited by other users if errors are found. Grammar is not always excellent, but no other source has this many lyrics from such a wide variety of artists. A definite first look if you want to figure out what the heck Ghostface is saying.


Unedited lyrics to primarily “new school” songs. Preference is given to Da Brat, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Ja Rule, Kris Kross, the Notorious B.I.G., Puff Daddy, Will Smith, and 2Pac. However, Nas, the Roots, Wu-Tang Clan, OutKast, RUN-DMC, Common, Ice Cube, and N.W.A. are each represented by one tune. Songs in alphabetical order by title. Writing credits given at beginning of each song. Choruses and each artist’s individual verses (if songs with multiple ones) are clearly labeled. A good recent source if you do not trust or other internet sites.

A better representation of old school lyrics. Listed in alphabetical order by artist. Groups with multiple artists are not properly identified within each song. Big Daddy Kane, Boogie Down Productions, De La Soul, and Public Enemy get respect.
