Apparently Timbaland doesn’t appreciate Jay trying to kill his faux voice steez. Illseed caught a little word about the “drama” that’s unfolding concerning Jigga’s new track:
Jay-Z is supposedly giving the technology (autotune) its official eulogy with the song “Autotune is Dead.” Also, Kanye is supposedly finished with it and will rap again on the next one. I wonder what T-Pain has to say about this. From what I understand or have been told, the person who had the most problem and did the majority of the hating on the Autotune was Timbaland, who had reportedly been cutting records with Jay for a minute. Here’s the kicker that pissed Tim off… all his records with Jay had been autotuned to some extent or another. Apparently, the use of the tool was a bit too noticeable. I heard the song were all tracked in Los Angeles and then mixed in Hawaii, which makes sense. These recordings were supposedly done during Justin Timberlake and Leona Lewis sessions and this is why both Ye and Timb were both there. It looks like the Timbaland songs might be scrapped or redone. Timbaland has had serious crossover success, but his most recent work with the Pussycat Dolls and rocker Chris Cornell haven’t fared as well so this Jay-Z stuff is big for him.
Somebody should have killed that sh*t a long time ago.
