    Love Lockdown sucks because of the Autotone and dude singing (none)

  2. Smitty Says:

    I’m not sure I can say the Kanye joint is wack, because I couldnt hear the words.

    But i can say this: very anticlimactic. VERY.

  3. eskay Says:

    >>Love Lockdown sucks because of the Autotone and dude singing (none)

    I don’t know, I gotta hear a studio version. the autotune didn’t sound too bad to me, but maybe that’s ’cause it was live.

  4. that guy Says:

    thank JAYhova for DVR…step ya cable service game up eskay

  5. Big Homie Says:

    I didnt know the joint was him singing it all the way through, but it’s really not that bad. I think the song will get hate because of the autotune. Autotune gets mad hate. I have to hear cdq version.

  6. that guy Says:

    Dear kanye, wayne, and fellow rappers

    Get off my dick and biting my style.

    Sincerly,
    T-Pain

    I agree.

    Wayne looked like he was in good charlotte.
    katy perry>
    T-wayne > lil wayne or t-pain by themselves.

    Am I the only one feeling Love Lockdown? Dude continues to push the envelope.

  9. eskay Says:

    >>thank JAYhova for DVR…step ya cable service game up eskay

    oh I DVR’d it, watching from the beginning now. NOBODY can touch my DVR game patna.

    Sounded dope to me…

  12. Rey Says:

    Pff… If one of you guys was in a studio, one of you would say, “Lemme try that autotune shit”, and then you’d do it and think it sounded cool, and then you’d do a whole song and think it was cool. The whining about Autotune is really, really annoying. Some people can do it well (Pain, Wayne, Kanye), and some can’t (everyone else but them, Teddy Riley, and Roger Troutman). Get. Over. It.

    Looks like it’s back to avoiding leaks and previews of new Kanye until the album drops. *sigh*

    I like what I heard from “love lockdown”. I bet this album is gonna be more somber and heartfelt, ala some of the stuff on “late registration”, except more person and less social commentary.

  13. k-rob Says:

    do these kids even know that wearing your pants like that is soooo gay?
    them jeans only mean easy acces, no man should have his ass on display.we dont need to see that.the nigga cant even walk properly.am disgusted with this generation right now, puttin this guy on a pedistal.the man kisses men on the lips and wear his pant with his ass exposed.
    this rap shit is all fucked up, i respect he correction officer more than this gay ass shit.but i guess am old school.

    kanye shit was WACK

    Yeah you’re right….I guess I’ll have to wait for the CDQ which shouldn’t take long for you to get right?

  16. RiZE Says:

    @ Rey

    Roger & Zapp didn’t use autotune. It was called a talkbox. Much different. Requires talent, and sounds much better.

    And wayne and kanye sound TERRIBLE with the autotune. They leave ripples in their voice and it doesn’t sound good. T-Pain should be the only one rocking it, and even he shouldn’t be looked at as the end-all be-all of urban music.

    This shit has gone too far.

  17. All Day Every Day Says:

    Eskay let me save u some time…skip to the first performance u saw which was the last…show suxs

    bet 2008>vmas

    ozone>vmas..lol

  18. Rey Says:

    Also, I wonder if this is the Kanye album that people make up their minds to hate on before it even comes out, ala Kingdom Come (underrated), Idlewild (underrated) etc etc.. It might be. You fickle fuckers are fuckin’ fickle.

  19. biz Says:

    i upset the jawn only had two drums (maybe,couldn’t hear) on it. (love lockdown i mean)

  20. Paperstacker Says:

    Just for the record. That Kanye Song was fucking garbage imo.

    No it wasn’t because it was something different…

    Not it wasn’t because I’m not open minded and don’t like listening to so called “innovative shit”

    I listen to every almost genre when I want to listen to singing I listen to people that actually that can actually sing.

    GTFOH with that autotune shit fam. smh, any non-singer can sing into the shit in the studio and sound decent.

    Yo, but wait till niggas come out the woodwork and say Kanye did some innovative shit because he sang some bullshit into the autotune and called it a song.

    And you know the nigga thought he had done something unheard of, when he sang a whole song minus any rap. Shit is an insult to listeners.

    But still apart from this Kanye is one of the best to do it and of course he always drop heat but this shit doesn’t get a pass.

  21. Fidel Cashflow Says:

    I dont even think kanye is a rapper anymore…

    song didnt sound that bad though…

  22. eskay Says:

    because every rapper and 75% of niggas on the street don’t parade around with their asses hangin out. [ll]

    I can’t condone the tightness of them pants though under any circumstances.

    but at the same time, I’m not going to sit here and dwell on the fit of another man’s clothing.

    k-rob’s just mad because Dwayne took Curtis’ spot as the biggest rapper on the planet.

  23. NotU Says:

    The whining about Autotune is really, really annoying.

  25. E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA Says:

    both these songs suck

  26. Paperstacker Says:

    *almost every genre*

  27. Tijuana Felix Says:

    *uncovers from a year of lurking*

    people shouldnt make a big deal about kanye singing….whenever he previews his new songs he always sings the samples or the chorus…he even sang bittersweet on def poetry jam. after graduation i guess his success let him get away with actually making a whole song of what he has been itching to do all along

  28. RiZE Says:

    the host was corny too. I’m pretty sure those laughs were digitally inserted.

    Jonah Hill shouldve just hosted

  29. Tijuana Felix Says:

    russell brand is a legend rize you dont even know

  30. bxconnect Says:

    Love Lockdown sucks because of the Autotone and dude singing (none)

    i dont know i gotta hear it in the whip.it takes a good 3 listens for me to feel joints anyway.i wasnt feeling “swagger like us”the first few times until i heard it on the radio a few times.

    oh yeah the vma awards shows sucked.

  31. biz Says:

    Love Lockdown

    (C) frontin’- pharrell

    no hate just a possibility
    nah mean….

  32. Goods Says:

    RiZE,
    Russell Brand is hilarious. Plus, he’s a great writer — peep his columns in the Guardian.

  33. Big Homie Says:

    Rihanna opening the show and Kanye closing the show were the only parts I saw. Other than that, just drank beer and watched Sunday Night Football. So the sVMAs were that bad huh?

    lol

  34. Tijuana Felix Says:

    andd peep his weekly podcast courtesy of bbc2

  35. Fever Says:

    Talk about a wack show…that whole show was ass 4real. MTV wants rock and pop back on top. I never even heard that Brittney Spears song she kept winning for. WTF is up with songs being nominated thats only like two months old and Im not a fan of khaled but damn anybody see him grt nominated cuz i sure do hear him all the damn time All the rap songs except for millie required a singing hook…WTF…I like Rihannas thighs thats it. FUCK MTV!!!!

  36. NotU Says:

    oh yeah the vma awards shows sucked.

    ^
    Co-sign

  37. RiZE Says:

    I’m sure Brand might be funny, but he didn’t connect with the audience (who was dead as hell during the performances too)

  38. biz Says:

    the other songs sounds more hip-hop. heartless i think its called……
    In the mean time lets get that audio rip poppin.

  39. JoMoses Says:

    I cant wait to hear niggas excuse for this not being wack..

    “Oh its just something new”
    “He’s Pushing the envelope”
    “Nobody else is doing it”

    …fuck that, that shit was ass, and im a ye fan. It sound like Ray Charles meets T-Pain…which should never happen…

  44. Darth Cipher Says:

    Kanye is gonna release another version of the song, since it definitely won’t get the response he’s going for… back to the drawing board Ye, you fucked up!!!

  45. SDP Says:

    WEEZY F. BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. Big Homie Says:

    Love Lockdown is not wack. Its something new. He’s pushing the envelope and besides, nobody else is doing it. It reminds me of Ray Charles meeting T-Pain.

  47. Ty Says:

    “Louie Rag” would have been a better look for TIP not that gay ass shit “Whateva u like”…

  48. jdiaz Says:

    hate on kanye but on tha low yall stans. do ya think kanye. btw that song was epic!!

  49. eskay Says:

    lol, not saying they didn’t (watching ’em now), but I can’t imagine what MTV would have to do for ya’ll to come on here and say the awards didn’t suck.

    it’s a fucking award show, get over it.

  50. nation Says:

    in other news that katy perry broad is bad

  59. Big Homie Says:

    I’m amazed that you guys actually watched the show in it’s entirety knowing the show was going to be some trash.

    Glad the Colts lost though *sips Corona*

  60. nation Says:

    it’s kinda wack that Ye doesn’t do interviews anymore. last time all the radio shit really set the tone for what was Graduation. and not those shitty interviews that only happen when people are dropping records (c) The Game, Jeezy etcs

    they’re just gonna rush out his 4th album, probably in the same way they will BP3 and then hop on over to Roc Nation to chase that tour money

    LF: how did Heart of the City gross more than Glow In The Dark… that’s so gay. it’s like 50’s 400 million dollar myth from last summer resurfacing in his adlibs
