Jay-Z "D.eath O.f A.utotune" Live @ Hot 97 Summer Jam 2009 = Antares© Auto-Tune™ Sound Bwoy Burial ... LOL.

Streaming Audio/Download Link: Jay-Z - D.O.A. (Death Of Autotune)(Dirty)(NO DJ)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Surprise! Surprise! Ever the opportunist, Jay-Z could not allow the maelstrom of instant publicity that his latest record has created to go by without capitalizing on it in a major way. If the premiere of D.eath O.f A.utotune on Hot 97 last Friday was the public viewing, then Jay-Z's performance of almost everbody's current favorite real nigga rallying song during Young Jeezy's set @ yesterday's Hot 97 Summer Jam 2009 was the burial.

Now, for the record, I am of the opinion that Jay-Z is not so much against the creative use of the Antares© Auto-Tune™ program as he is against the no holds barred abuse of this mechanical device. What was once employed as a means to enhance an artist's work and provide their voice with a different, more dynamic textural presence has now become, for many, a way to disguise the fact that they have no talent and no business being within 200 yards of a soundproof booth ... lol. Much like my stance regarding bitch ass Hipsters and their loathsome Retrosexual counterparts, I reserve my disdain for bandwagon hopping followers and hold nothing against those who pioneered this trend as early adopters. Bottom Line: If you're slow Y.O.U. blow motherfucker!

Oh yeah, with all of that said, T-Pain did kind of play himself by standing side-by-side with Jay-Z as he announced the death knell of his beloved Antares© Auto-Tune™ technology ... lol. Only Jay-Z and his unparalleled powers of mind control could make people completely compromise their own self worth for the chance to share a stage and breath the same rarefied air as Marcy Project's finest. Score another 1 for Brooklyn homie! This is Livestyle.
