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.

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

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.

(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.
lucienpsinger - 2010-01-07
I love that hip hop has so readily co-opted a production trick basically popularized by Cher.
Syd Midnight - 2010-01-07
I appreciate the fact that an aging Flava Flav paid some undoubtedly semetic producer to make him sound like a white boy.

lucienpsinger - 2010-01-07
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 - 2010-01-07
On YouTube, in the related videos for the goat video, the first one is Lady Gaga.

Agreed. Horrid.

Hey guys, what are these star things above everybody's posts?

Military rank.

Harveyjames - 2010-01-07
'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.

What I really want to know is:

Why the fuck hasn't Chuck D stepped up and stopped this yet?

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.
charmlessman - 2010-01-07
Did he just promise his woman they'd be together until one of them ended up in a Hearse?

Chancho - 2010-01-07
Flav is about 50 years old.
athodyd - 2010-01-07
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.

The world is just amazing.
