Icelandic / Íslensk hip-hop and rap transcription and translation help!

Halló, I'm looking for people to help transcribe and translate the lyrics to multiple Icelandic hip-hop and rap songs. My friends, siblings and I want to practice the language with them, but I can't find the lyrics, and I've been posting on a number of sites asking for this without success. So if any Icelandic speakers can take some time to just write down the lyrics so others can learn, it would be amazing! Even if hip-hop isn't your type of music, realise many people love it and I think Iceland can excel at it. I'm constantly impressed at how much good music Ísland creates, given it's small population. You can post the lyrics here, send them to me, or post them on this excellent lyrics translation website, and I will share them in other places :
Merci beaucoup, vielen Dank, takk fyrir!!!

Hemmi Gunn - Emmsjé Gauti feat. Blazroca (Icelanders going crazy):

Kinky - Emmsjé Gauti (chill music, pretty music video):

Bara Ég - Emmsjé Gauti (chill hip-hop, the version on his album, also called Bara Ég, is MUCH better):


Inn Og Út - Diddi Fel (sexy hip-hop):

Töfrateppi - Shades of Reykjavík (Mary Jane rap, I need just the translation for this):


Macaulay Culkin - Skuggar Reykjavíkur (creepy rap, pretty good for an amateur song and video):
