WHY THE FUCK IS LIL WAYNE USING AUTO-TUNE EVEN WHEN HE’S NOT ATTEMPTING TO SING (IF THAT’S EVEN WHAT IT SHOULD BE CALLED)? SAME WITH KANYE NOW?!?!
What the hell is going on here? I guess it could help in getting auto-tune to be boring and then have it lose it’s power or not be used again… or it could amplify it’s use and nobody will need to know how to sing, just close enough to get the auto-tune to get to the right note.
Fucking mainstream hip-pop. Not called rap, cuh-rap!
This isn’t hip-hop, it’s hip-pop playing to the teens that don’t know any better.
I, as a music producer, am disappointed that people are buying into this. What are they getting out of it? What is the feeling or whatever it is that is appealing?
I don’t think these hip-pop fans even know what to like in a song anymore. I think they are just settling on something because there is minimal left to like.
Sometimes, the lyrics are hot but now more than ever is it rare to hear great lyrics on a (wannabe) rap/hip-pop song.
The tracks I’m talking about aren’t artistic, they are gimmicks.
The lyrics might as well be “Blah, blah, blah…” through auto-tune on a beat of just an 808 bass drum.
Speaking of that last statement, have you heard the interesting new Kanye track? I don’t know what to think of it yet.
