Why does just about every rapper alive feel like they need to use vocoders to sell records? They make themselves sound like butt, but everyone (pretty much) is doing it!

F*ck T-Pain for starting this miserable trend!

Yes.

This is the sham that started it all:
YouTube - T-Pain Featuring Yung Joc - Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin')

The latest violence:
YouTube - Kanye West - Heartless [NEW FULL] 2008 HQ Video Song

I have to agree. The sad truth is if we stripped todays "artists" of their technology they would not even make it through the auditions of American Idol.

Very Very true...I always ask my friends what music from today will be playing in 20 years...And these people go to perform and all they do is lip sing. What the hell is that about..
