So, as we’re all aware, there was a large movement a couple of years ago where every rapper and his mother were using autotune on their tracks. As previously stated, T-Pain (who essentially originated it) and Kanye West are the only ones that used it correctly. Apparently, Lil Wayne never got the message that NO ONE LIKES AUTOTUNED TRACKS ANYMORE. But I guess those phone calls he’s allotted that are meant for contact with the outside world, are made to those who are completely oblivious to it (I’m looking at you Young Money Family). Now I’m of the school of thought that there is something to be said for persistence. Take a stroll through West Virginia- people STILL have mullets, or “West Virginia Waterfalls,” as they’re so affectionately called. Now I would imagine that it takes perseverance, and conviction in your beliefs to endure all of the hecklers and naysayers, and that I can respect, but it doesn’t make mullets acceptable, much in the same fashion that autotune (unless T-Pain or Kanye does it) is no longer acceptable. It can’t mask everything. Like the fact that you’re an ex-gangster from Hollygrove. I don’t understand- every time Wayne hops on a track with Baby, it’s bandanas in right pocket and bringing home the money via getting your ‘by any means on’. But on tracks by himself it’s skinny jeans and vans, and hideous autotuned screeching over guitar riffs. So you can imagine how disheartening for me it is to hear that Wayne is going to have another heavily autotuned LP called “I Am Not A Human Being” (and you are, because interplanetary space travel is still in the works considering that we still use a space shuttle that was modeled in the 80s), just like that skidmark on the underpants of rock album inaptly named “Rebirth.” Forget about it. And you can keep that stupid mixtape with mediocre tracks and DJ Drama tagging all over it. I hope jail made you step your bars up, Wayne, because the Carter IV is going to have to be ALMIGHTY work.
