Last Night Autotune Saved My Life

 

Updated:  I just figured out that I sound a lot like an autotune vocalist by singing into my Gatorade bottle.  Try it!

Arab Money – Controversy

Bismillah Ulrahman Ulrahim Alhamdullillah rab Ulalamen

No, I didn’t have a BF on my keyboard, those are the Quranic lyrics used in Busta Rhyme’s newest hit Arab Money.  For an Arab and a Muslim it’s prohibited to sing or cite a Quranic verse in combination with music and most Muslims will find this disrespectful. 

Learn the Dance > See that Busta looks like he’s been enjoying the good life > Ask yourself if he also resembles Tracy Jordan just a bit….?
 

I thought the track was borderline offensive the first time I heard it but sometimes a good remix will just make you straddle your moral fence.

Akon – Freedom

Here’s a quick summary of Akon’s new album, Freedom:

akon2

All his ballads about street life and/or love are lame

Isn’t his street cred reputation still suspect anyhow?

There are a few tracks that are OK (Right Now, I’m So Paid, & We Don’t Care)

All together, it’s worth the $4 that Amazon has it discounted for today, but it’s not worth much more (ie. we are in a recession y’all).  If you miss today’s special, hit me up offline and we’ll work something out.

Without Auto-Tune, 2008 Would Have Been….?

No longer used for slight imperfections (Avril) nor able to stop a trainwreck (Kim Zolciak), the Auto-Tune certainly made its debut in 2008. 

Here are the Auto-Tune’s Greatest Hits :

Lil Wayne – Lollipop
Kanye West – Love Lockdown
T-Pain feat Lil Wayne – Can’t Believe It
Ron Brown & Jim Jones ft. Juelz Santana – Pop Champagne
Young Jeezy ft. Kanye West – Put On
Cher – Believe

Of all the aforementioned, I’m most thankful for technology’s contribution to helping Wezzy.
