So I found this website (http://www.translation-telephone.com/)through reddit that lets you enter a word or phrase in english, then it uses google translate to translate the phrase 20 times in different languages and then back to english….the rap lyrics get quite lost in translation.  Since it’s 20 random languages, the translation is different every time.  Here are some of the best results for some famous rap lyrics
