Jay-Z's new song "D.O.A." which stands for Death of Auto-Tune has been dissed by DJ Webstar and Jim Jones. The two young musicians reached out to their Twitters to share what they have in mind regarding the anti Auto-Tune song.
Webstar tweeted, "Who heard old ass Jay Z hating?" Meanwhile, Jones wrote, "A old sucka lol we back and if he kilt outotune then we must be easter the resurection lol shouts to soldier boy tellem he ripped."
The negative response toward Jay-Z's new song does not only come from the young performers but also comes from stand-up comedian Loni Love. "Imma be real about it, Jay-Z really need to keep auto-tune if he want his wife [Beyonce Knowles] to keep workin'!" so she stated.
On the other hand, T-Pain who is well known for his use of Auto-Tune in his songs apparently has no hard feeling despite Jay-Z's lyrics which calls for Auto-Tune death. The Nappy Boy artist recently joined Jay-Z at Summer Jam in New Jersey when the husband of Beyonce raps the new song.
"It was a little awkward, but it was cool," Jay-Z recalled the day he and T-Pain shared stage. "He didn't mean any harm. He's just embracing the record. You shouldn't be confused by the message. I'm not saying Auto-Tune is wack. But leave that for them [T-Pain, Lil Wayne and Kanye West, the artists Jay said used it artistically]; it's not for everybody. That's how you stagnate hip-hop. You listen to the radio, and every single has Auto-Tune. So we have to get rid of that part."
"D.O.A. " is a street single recorded for Jay-Z's new album "Blueprint III". Debuted by Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 on June 5, this song comes from production hands of No I.D. and Kanye West.
