Jay said nothing on the track? Are people lacking comprehension? These lyrics are flying over your head or something?

That's a damn shame.
no they're just mediocre lyrics. just cause he's talking about something doesn't mean he is reciting it very well. if this was jay z's first song ever, would it really get any acclaim? it is so average on the real. he can spit very well, but on this track his potential is far from evident here

Buddens on "Who" brought this concept up way before J did, but isn't getting his credit...

"Bring it up, and dudes get on some coy s**t, was it T-Pain with that funny voice s**t, was it Lil Wayne with that funny voice s**t, the whole game d**k rode that funny voice s**t..."
thts because budden is superior to jay z on substance, conscious rap. jay is too busy being an american gangster (pure ignorance) where as budden etc is on some more poetic awareness rap. jay z nor anyone else in the game right now can hit a "who k!lled hiphop?" out the park like budden did. jay z should have been pushin grafh and budden whn he had def jam but the f**k only thinks money and pushed jeezy etc... f**k jay z with this redundant s**t and having a position to refocus hip hop and not doing so. I dnt respect jay z any more AT ALL

I chose na, cause jay z is only sayin wht every other dope emcee with half a brain has been sayin. jay was lyrically very underwhelming on it and he contradicte
himself by propping wayne, jeezy, tpain, and kanye who r ruining the idea of pure lyrical skill by imploring gimmicks.

Contradicting himself because he gave a pass to T-Pain, Kanye, and Weezy? Think about it, out of everybody who f**ked with the autotune, these aren't the most successful out of the many who did?

The point of the song is not to call out folks using autotune, he's calling out folks that are not original. After T-Pain ran with it, everybody's following suit. Not just that, but he's also calling out folks dressing gay with the tight jeans, shirts, and featuring bright colors, rapping about their block (including what's left of Dipset).

It's not just the death of the autotune, just the death of all of these fads going on. Not for the sake of Hip-Hop a la Nas, but the integrity of the people making this music and how they're projecting themselves as soft sellouts.

He asks "I'm a multi-millionaire so how am I the hardest n*gga here?"

Medicore lyrics? There's a lot of quoteables in that song that get straight to the point.

"I know we facing a recession
But the music y'all making going make it the great depression"

"You n*ggas' jeans too tight
You colors too bright, your voice too light"

"You n*ggas singing too much
Get back to rap you t-paining too much
I'm a multi-millionaire
So how is it I'm still the hardest here"

"I don't be in the project hallway talking about how I be in the project all day
That sound stupid to me
If you a gangsta this is how you prove it to me"


n*ggas act like true lyricism is supposed to always have a ton of metaphors, similes, and double entendre. The point of all of those writing devices are to either paint a picture or make your point. Something Jay always seems to do correctly. n*ggas look for s**t that shouldn't even be there.

Rappers shouldn't be using those devices to make you not understand where he's coming from. That's a.ss backwards.

But is that s**t really impressive? The delivery of the great depression line made took away from it...

The "too bright, too light" has been said so many times before, it's nothing eye opening.

The "t-paining too much" part didn't even rhyme and sounded corny like f**k, and it also should have been something he says in the beginning of a death of Autotune song, not the end.


The "project hallway" s**t is cool (I guess) but has absolutely nothing to do with the track.

The brilliance of Jay isn't what he actually says, it's the way he says it. This was some straight forward a.ss s**t that is straight lackluster. Only true hot line in the song is the "This is ain't politically correct" line. All the other lines sounded like any other f**kboy spitter just saying s**t. "This is Sinatra at the opera, bring a blonde" wtf...

He doesn't even truly address autotune and why it's wack and why it should be done.

And he also contradicts himself talking about jacking someone then talking about project hallway s**t. Is you a gangsta or not?

This track is actually a f**king fail if it's true title is "death Of Autotune"

I'm gonna go ahead and say that this s**t better not be on the album.

And Luda, I know you listen to Jay for real. Don't even begin to say that this is a quality record from him.

Obviously the lyrics aren't anything special..but how can you hate on the track itself? The live instruments are ridiculous.
