Funkmaster Flex x Mister Cee x Jay-Z

New York City was in a frenzy last night over this record. Funkmaster Flex and Mister Cee premiered Hov's new single off the Blueprint 3 last night on Hot 97. Pandaemonium. Jay goes in on this record about the abuse and misuse of auto-tune (what T-Pain does to his voice in all of his radio hits) in the music industry. I'll admit it, I thoroughly enjoy the T-Pain, Kanye West, Akon, Weezy auto-tune club bangers, but Jay comes correct in this single. He clearly draws the line between ringtone rap and that realness. Hip Hop is evolving, but the simplicity and eloquence of the boom bap is unequivocally timeless.
