What's up with this whole auto-tuning the hell out of a rapper trying to sing thing? How do they do it live? I liked Lil Wayne better as a rapper... rappers are not singers... Kanye is doing it too. It negates the whole idea of rap and hip-hop. Can someone enlighten me?

I dunno about all that. I was still in eighth grade when Big Things Poppin came out. Whatever You Like came out while I was in ninth grade. That's a whole Summer.

Also, Lil Wayne has had a good amount of songs on MTV. Although not all of them were the biggest songs, they still got there.

You also gotta go by sites nowadays and youtube and whatnot. On youtube the biggest videos are from Rihanna (duh) Chris Brown (a little surprising) and Lil Wayne, though the top video of all time is Avril Lavigne of all people...Then again, we're in a day and age where the record gets broken 3 times a year.

Anyway, I digress....

Lil Wayne didn't sell 4 million albums and wasn't the top selling artist of 2008 for nothing. Not for Lollipop. Lollipop was obviously huge, but then you had Mrs. Officer which is gaining in popularity as well as that b.s. featuring on T-Pain's "Can't Believe It" remix. That was auto-tuning at its worst. I hope the trend dies by the end of 2009. with auto-tune, ANYBODY can "sing" but they all sound basically the same.

That's why I loved the hip-hop from the 90's. Rappers were rappers and R&B guys were R&B guys. Nate Dogg held it down like no other. He was and still is the gold standard for hooks. Shame his life basically fell apart.

Autotune is also not the reason for the Carter 3 selling 4 million. It's probably the fact that he was on every track of 07/08 and it was so long awaited that it sold a million in the first week. It also had a good effect for Wayne's career with people who didn't like him before; I know people who despised him before that said that the Carter 3 lived up to the hype, or that it had a lot of creativity on it, contrary to what they were expecting. Mind you these were pretty picky music listeners too.

That's how I see it, anyway.
