Wack Lyric of the Day, 11-18-08

Ron Browz

Today isn’t even a wack lyric, it’s just Ron Browz in general.  Now I’ve heard dude is mad cool, and so are his people, but seriously, all of his recent appearances make my ears bleed.  As a producer, he’s fine, though I’ve always thought his two ‘classics’, “Ether” and “Ebonics,” were carried by Nas and Big L, definitely not the beats.

However, all this off-key vocoder singing just needs to stop.  From “Pop Champagne” to “Arab Money” to the new Noreaga track, “Rotate,” WOW. Seriously, it’s awful.  People are really ok with this?

Dude makes T-Pain sound like Marvin.

    People are going to look back on the year 2008 at some point down the road and just shake their heads when it comes to (mainstream) hip hop. We finally moved out of the Lil Jon era and into the Autotune era. Incredibly, it’s a step backwards.

    Hahah, I feel you man. I dunno, theoretically, I’d take a decent auto-tune melody over Lil’ Jon’s yelling…just cause that crunk ish is too much for my relaxed self. But when these ‘singers’ are making such awful sounds, it’s physically painful to listen to.
