Jay-Z Drops Bold New Track

Apologies for the lack of posts over the last few days. Summer is proving to be more difficult than I thought it would be as far as posting goes. I am headed to Bonnaroo tomorrow and then on to Peru so it may be July before I really get to some solid posts. Once again, apologies for that. I did however feel obligated to share Jay-Z's newest release which I heard on the radio a few days back.
Jay-Z's "D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)" is really more of a declaration to the rap world rather than a new track to send to MTV and 99 jamz (for those of you in Jackson, MS). In it Jay-Z goes after rap's current trend of autotuned dance jams and raps, "You rapper's singin too much, get back to rappin, you're T-Painin' too much." He goes after Young Jeezy and lil Wayne for basically adding a verse to every song that is being produced these days. It's also interesting to note that this track is produced by Kanye West, whose last effort 808s and Heartbreaks, was essentially an autotune album. Check it out below, it has the hip-hop world buzzing.
