Exactly why Jay is the GOAT
ps Bitch ass nas NEVER shut down some1′s shit like this hahahaha
Just cause jay-z siad “no more autotune” doesn’t mean stop, only bitchmade rappers listen to jay-z, auto tune still gets play on the radio everyday, Jay-z failed with that movement and he made autotune sells increase, dude stay tryna kill trends but he stay on the young niggas dick(wayne,drake, kudi) thats the only way he stay relevent
The funny thing is Jay-Z never said stop using..it… simply does every single record must be auto-tuned- for crying out loud? I’m glad Ghostface never released that shit…lol…c’mon ghost don’t get lazy on us…get creative we know u can release a nice single w/o auto-tune…u’ve done it all ur freaking career….so why take the easy route now?
We need to get back to rapping people..seriously..is good to have those radio friendly records…but when the corporation dictates what we ought to be listening to…because they ear fuck us with Ron Brownz whack ass Champagne song then we have a serious problem…we are the music….we are the ones making these execs rich…
THIS IS DEATH OF AUTO-TUNE MOMENT OF SILENCE LOL…
btw – co sign with Foot prints on u niggas! hehe.
this shit is hilarious … lol
PRETTY TONE IS MY BOY BUT EVEN IF HOV DIDNT DROP D.O.A. THAT WASNT GONNA WORK. SO EVERYTHING DO HAPPEN 4 A REASON.
smh and LMAO @ G-Roc.. saying:
“…Jay-z failed with that movement and he made autotune sells increase, dude stay tryna kill trends”
Do you have prove showing how autotune sells increased? no seriously do you?
and “…dude stay trynna kill trends”…hehe…the funny thing is he does kill trends and makes them as well…
4.0′s remember those? land rover actually released how their 4.0s were no longer selling…coincidentally it was after that album dropped…no truth as to if it was Jay-Z…but is very coincidental
Ice berg remember that? Jay-Z increased their sales back in 1998…that’s a fact -dont’ believe me look it up..lol. Yankee hats remember those? increased sales – ask George Steimbrunner. Rocawear how about that? So let me guess 80 million in 18 months…due to who? Damon Dash wearing it right? lol smh (smh at u) Button ups, recall those? Throw backs, remember those? yeah he threw’em back….ask Fabolous if he remembers…hehe… Reebok – not even AI in his prime or Shaq in Orlando…in 1992 had the fastest selling sneaker…..Jay-Z a none athelete holds the record for the fastest selling reebok sneaker in history…don’t believe me? uh? don’t believe me? hehe…lol..look it up..hahaha you don’t have to believe me..just look it up..that’s all….I don’t care if you believe me or not….just look it up….
Is like me saying do u believe Michael Jordan was in the chicago bulls…by me saying it…? No you don’t believe me? lol fine don’t – - -just look it up..hehe…
next time young fella stay in ya lane…before you make such idiotic statements.
Oh well, “legends” shouldn’t be following trends anyway. Jay did him a favor.
G-Roc you just got owned big time.
Autotune is like spinnin rims. When they first came out everybody was like “oh thats hot”. Now you see somebody with spinnin rims and its like “you still rockin those?”
ACTUALLY,SALES OF THE ANTARES AUTOTUNE PLUGIN HAVE INDEED INCREASED SINCE JAY-ZS SONG CAME OUT.FIGURES ARE A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO COME BY DUE TO THE MAJORITY OF SALES COMING FROM ONLINE PURCHASES ACROSS MULTIPLE VENDORS.
A JAY-Z SONG ACTUALLY HAD A REVERSE EFFECT THIS TIME.I THINK THERE ARE 2 FUNDAMENTAL REASONS WHY:
1.AUTOTUNE IS BEING USED/IS AVAILABLE IN VIRTUALLY EVERY MAJOR STUDIO NOW.I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FORGETTING THAT AUTOTUNE IS AN ACTUAL PROGRAM AND NOT THE ACTUAL EFFECT THAT IS POPULAR RIGHT NOW.
2.TEENAGERS,ADOLESCENTS,AND YOUNG ADULTS(13-25)ARE THE ONES WHO FIND AUTOTUNE PLEASANT.IT’S PRETTY CLEAR AT THIS POINT THAT JAY-Z DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER ANYMORE TO INFLUENCE THIS DEMOGRAPHIC(AS WITNESSED BY THE MAJORITY OF THE ONLINE RESPONSE TO HIS LATEST WORK).
AS FOR GHOSTFACE AND HIS SINGLE,THE SONG IS UNDERWHELMING TO BEGIN WITH,JAY-Z DECLARING DEATH ON AUTOTUNE WASN’T THE SOLE REASON WHY HIS SONG FAILED.
HERE’S A LINK FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES TALKING ABOUT D.O.A AND AUTOTUNE,VP OF MARKETING AT ANTARES CONFIRMS SALES HAVE EXPERIENCED A RECENT BOOST THANKS TO D.O.A AND OTHER STUFF
track sounded kinda hot
prolly only becuz it was ghostface haha
“G-Roc” is should rename himself as “Son Doulah”.
Hov is what he is. There is no denying his influence when another rapper blatantly states that a next mans song smashed his song.
hot my nigga ghost2!! caz this is thriller!! thriller niiight!!
Ghostface owes major KUDOS to Jay-Z for that.
“Baby” is a MUCH better record! (More in the mood of the album, I’m hoping)
@PIGGY ROSS™ clearly…and again clearly you didn’t understand the article.
The article says that due to the song: “The Jay-Z controversy is great,” said Marco Alpert, vice president of marketing at Antares. “We couldn’t buy P.R. like this.”
Although Mr. Alpert declined to give specifics, he did say the company had seen a boost in business amid the flurry of recent attention.
Jay-Z gave it attention and PR.. however, the boost in business is not due to the Jay-Z song..is due to the artists that were using the tool PRIOR TO THE SONG and how it then followed by fast food commercials using the product.
As you continue reading the next line: Mr. Alpert said Auto-Tune’s move from music studios to viral videos and fast food commercials had been an interesting evolution.
SMH at the attempt to try to own me…nice try.
well Mo, I think Piggy Ross answered one of your points concerning the AutoTune lol but yeah Jay has set a number of trends that people have rocked but I do believe he is losing some of his trendsetting ability…
who went out and started wearing those big ass ’87 Gazelle glasses he was rockin for a while?? what young people started rockin the big ass Gold Ropes again (see that Katrina song video he did)? And he tried BAPE way way way after it was played out?? (thank god BAPE is gone, I really wasn’t feelin the Clipse trying to make it look like that was a VA thing)
I hope he is not trying to get cats to start rockin’ peezy ass lookin hair like he had in the D.O.A. video, when me and my girl watched it she goes “is that the new trend??” lol but who knows he is influential to a number of people who don’t know how to be themselves so it might catch on.
Rep Seven City !!
btw that’s why Mr. Alpert doesn’t give specifics…hehe…
no Mo, I think you read that wrong bruh, Yes Jay gave it attention with a song but he was trying to give it very negative attention and kill it off. If the product evolves and expands thats not killing it off. Now Jay did a good job making his followers stop drinking Cristal well at least in not mentioning that they drink it in songs.
All Jay-Z did was give attention to the tool with the record…..that’s all he did…sort of how Nas when he said hip hop is dead….
I’m not going to sit here and say…Jay-Z has the same influence he did back then…of course he doesn’t…however, you must admit he took time off…and in the course of that a void was gone…and people (fans) are flaky..and go with what’s hot..at the moment….tigh tjeans, chain wearing…colorful clothes..etc…Jay-Z never has followed trends he kind of makes them….when all of that was going on..all u saw Jay-Z wore was black and his nappy ass ‘fro…..NO? lol…
As far as him trying to give it a negative attention and he just created more attention I give u that…and again HOWEVER, lol..
count the number of Autotune singles since the DOA track has come out…lol…?
Exactly my point.
FUCK AUTOTUNE FUCK AUTOTUNE FUCK AUTOTUNE
Mo you’re making some good points but stop with the “hehe” and “lol” at the end of every thought. Makes you sound like you dot your “i”s with hearts or something.
Cosign Mo on this debate.
He killed my single too Ghost haha u stupid f***
the WU dont need auto-tune we make clasics!!!!!
That song is crazk, TS is fire, I woulda bumped to it!!
Im a request the shit the next club I go to, and Im a say, “yeah i know a lot of DJs are sucking Jayz’s dick, but i know you got that Ghostface and trey songz joint right”
just to make him feel bad..lol
lol @ SP’s comment
FIRST OF ALL,THERE WAS NO ATTEMPT TO ‘OWN’ ANYONE.YOUR ARGUMENT WAS AUTOTUNE SALES DIDN’T INCREASE AFTER D.O.A,AND QUITE FRANKLY,YOU’RE WRONG.
NOW,LIKE I SAID IN MY FOLLOWUP POST,THE VP STATES SALES HAVE INCREASED THANKS TO JAY-Zs SONG AND OTHER STUFF-THIS ‘STUFF’ IS WHAT YOU LISTED;WENDYs COMMERCIALS,VIRAL VIDEOS SUCH AS AUTOTUNE THE NEWS,ETC ETC. D.O.A HAD A REVERSE EFFECT;INSTEAD OF KILLING INTEREST IN THE PRODUCT,IT ACTUALLY RAISED IT.
FURTHERMORE,NO ONE IS SAYING JAY-Z HASN’T HAD THE ABILITY TO INFLUENCE THE HIPHOP CULTURE IN THE PAST.WHAT WE’RE SAYING IS D.O.A FAILED TO DO SO.AS FOR THE REASONS WHY IT FAILED?I ALREADY LISTED SOME IN MY FIRST POST,YOU CAN FIND MORE OF THE REASONS IN MY OTHER POST HERE [realtalkny.uproxx.com]
AND ONE LAST THING,ABOUT THE RANGE ROVER 4.0 SALES;YOU’RE OUT OF YOUR F*CKING MIND IF YOU THINK JAY-Z WAS THE REASON FOR THE DECLINE IN SALES.AS A MATTER OF FACT,NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC HAS 1 ARTIST ALONE CONVINCED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO CEASE ADOPTION OF A POPULAR PRODUCT PRODUCED BY A MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR CORPORATION.NEVER.
This nigga ghost is dressed like its 1992 n shit. lol
WTF, he better drop this as a club track, then if it grows spin a single from this shit. better than some of the shit out. Not my type of song, but I def see women on the floor to this shit.
From the sounds of that shit , I’m glad the homey Ghost didn’t put that garbage out there! No offense to him, but that shit sounds too much like “Pop Champagne”. Enough of these used condom rap, lets open up a new pack and come with some new shit. Stop recycling.
But, for the record, I’m a major Ghost fan, TOP 5 DOA….. 5)Ghostface 4)Pun 3)AZ 2)BIGGIE 1)JAY/NAS But I wouldn’t have let what another man said stop me from doing my thing. We all know, some niggas were gonna do MORE autotune shit just outta spite, and there’s still a market for that crap. Sadly, crap sells, and I’m pretty sure Tony could of used a little bit of that radio/106 & Park/Ringtone money.
Hey Hey Hey< lets not forget Jay-Z said, He had 3 auto~tune tracks. so he fucked with it too! Ghostface sounds like a bitch right know! LMAO
yeah he’s dressed circa 1992 but by the way…that look is fuckin classic
@ Piggy Ross: Playa, people don’t take you serious when you type in all caps. You just come off more as a douche bag with your lame ass attempt to say J is not the shit while dudes you follow are not even passin’ gas (to borrow a phrase Joell Ortiz).
wow ghostface i dont even no wat to say to this being 1 of ur biggest fans..wat killed that song was having ron browz on ur track..notice how that stopped after arab money came out..ur single was outdated the second it was recorded
Why would someone be on here trying to say Auto-Tune is not an Effect it’s a program. That is plain ignorant. Auto Tune is an effect applied to vocals to keep them on key, but to get the full Auto-Tune effect like T-Pain you have to try and sing poorly. It is an effect you add to vocals. You can purchase a prog. that does this but that does not mean auto tune is not a program. You can do it in Reason 4.0 if you know what you are doing. Reason is a program. As for Jay-Z ruining Ghostface’s song…hahahahaha……….Neva blame someone else for you making shitty muzik.
Well end of the Day Jay-z Is the reason lil wayne and drake and all these young niggas started wearing the blues bothers glasses and Dressing in all black….. If jay was a dick rider he would of put on those colorful ass gay cloths.. Skinny ass gay jeans……and would of kiss birdman – Cause thats wats poppin Right ????? Kissing niggas,singing,tight girl cloths,Lil B,cheetah leggings,,, But if you niggas want to come out the closet… Then Let us real niggas know your gay before you start talking some extreme bullshit ya probably the same niggas that got offended when EM dissed Lady gaga RIGHT? lmfao…..How you a thug and bump auto tune like this shit go H.A.M? Fuck off the stage t-pain ass niggas…sensitive thugs y’all need hugs lmfao ( jay-z Voice )
Oh I forgot Trends you really want to talk ok lets see : Snap backs, all black clothing, The shades,Ace of spades , He made crystal poppin and killed it ,Wrist watches in general C’mon son on ”we off that”….thats song alone made majority of niggas stop wearing tims and switched to polos quick…QUICK! niggas dont rock jerseys now unless theres a actual game on. Song ( Hustlin) My Louis slippers, Polo top Linen shorts so my balls don’t get hot ha? like how is he coping i’m confused son ( On to the Next one ) – All the sudden every artist wanted to be Illuminati or have black videos and do strange wannabe devil shit like the video 6’7…Niggas was not that creative before jays video hand down no argument . I put a mill up that ok auto tune sold maybe for some …. But niggas iz sellin crazy records NOW not just a itune hit we actully buy the album NOW! But now Like allot of artist say in there interviews NOW HIP HOP IS IN IT”S BEST STATE! Jay saved it niggas gotta give props
