IS there a way to remove the autotune so we can just hear his normal horrible voice croaking out the lyrics? I'm reserving my 5th star for that video.

There might be a way to partially recover the original performance via careful formant analysis (to figure out how much the original signal was being pitch-bent) but a performance which gets this severely autotuned probably is all over the place formant-wise to begin with, so it is pretty much a one-way process.

Maybe if you caught him doing this live over a wireless mic you could catch the pre-processed signal.

James Woods
Preemptive five for that inevitable video.

I'm not an expert in digital signal processing, but my guess is that what'd be easier than trying to deconvolve a signal that was processed in a way where the parameters are unknown would be to give the recording engineer a turkey sandwich and sneak on his computer while he's eating it and steal the original track.

every time he sang "deeeeeeeeeep" i thought he was going to say
"daaaaaaaaaym."

i know how what is wrong with that flavor flav house.

there are not nearly enough hand prints on the walls. i dont think they are working hard enough to recreate his natural environment.

Watching this ridiculous little boglin reminds me of something: Why do hip hop artists always dress like M&Ms in their videos lately? Like in one scene, all yellow, in the next scene, all green, the next, all red. Somewhere there is a wardrobe van just filled with Yankees hats, every color of the candy rainbow.

FASHION

(next year everyone will dress in scottish kilts and tablecloth capes)

Why not just have a trumpet play it and have him endorse the song or something?

That satisfaction for a producer to somehow make money off of this must greatly surpass both the potential money they may make and their desires for aesthetically pleasing music.

This is like a perfect storm of suck. Wow.

I love that hip hop has so readily co-opted a production trick basically popularized by Cher.
Syd Midnight
I appreciate the fact that an aging Flava Flav paid some undoubtedly semetic producer to make him sound like a white boy.

lucienpsinger
It's overdone or it's getting that way, but I can't resist myself:

That goat must be the pitchfork used to autotune the autotuners.

pastorofmuppets
On YouTube, in the related videos for the goat video, the first one is Lady Gaga.

'Yo Flav, we ever going to sell out?'
'I know that if we do we get the hell out!'

I think it's time he made good on that promise.

So members of the NOI could turn traitor collude with the FBI to murder Malcolm X in cold blood, but no one in the S1Ws could muster enough outrage to mount a plot against Flava before this happened?

Extremely disappointing work by the First World Security force.

Did he just promise his woman they'd be together until one of them ended up in a Hearse?

Classy.

Flav is about 50 years old.

At this point is it even legally considered music? He is basically a fairly sophisticated text-to-speech engine.

Somebody should auto tune a speak and spell singing a song.
