yep, autotune, rinky-dink hi-hat cymbal through the whole f#ckin song, maybe a cheap-ass sounding keyboard hook ad nauseam... and just the most lamebrained cocky, vulgar lyrics you could ask for. it's more of a fashion show than anything else... what dumb clothes they're wearing, what dumb haircut they have... it's basically the same as any other top 40. nobody cares about the actual music.
and I dunno... I'm all for rappers being threatening, scary, violent, vulgar, or whatever, but keep the tongue in cheek just a little bit maybe? Wu-Tang, even Big L, were so over the top that it was cool, scary and funny at the same time. all these new guys, though, there's no sense of that. it's just "I'M A HARD NIGGA, #### Y'ALL b###h NIGGAZ" with no substance beyond that.
