No Words...



Now, it should be noted that I find the two primary people involved to be the most obnoxious figures in pop music but this video is too awesome for words. It's like a Pen & Pixel cover come magically to life. I'm speechless.

Of course, the song sucks and maybe the worst thing to happen to existence ever but the video is so utterly ill-conceived that it transcends the shitty, shitty CGI and becomes one of most hypnotic train wrecks ever put onto celluloid (or in this case, probably miniDV tape but still...).

Note To These Clowns Handlers: Do not let these men make an album under any circumstance! It may destroy the fabric of existence if it's actually released to the general public. Their collaborations only serve to highlight what everybody finds so irritating about these men in the first place! For the love of God, this cannot happen!

The Out Here Grindin video is the one that's like a Pen and Pixel cover come to life. And it's way funnier.

"Out Here Grindin" reminds of me of a much shittier version of "Triumph."

I think the video for that song just should be the video of Khaled forcing Kanye West and Consequence to watch him lip sync the entire song. i could watch that clip... all... day... long...

This auto-tune trend is insane. First off, the reason T-Pain uses the effect is because his pitch is shit. That fact would be only mildly irritating if rappers en masse weren't falling all over themselves to use the effect in a desperate attempt to sound more like singers.

That being said, the video is awesome. It just needs some bears in Ric Flair robes smoking cigars and drinking champagne.

i dunno, sure it could/would be a trainwreck but i'd check out a T-Pain/T-Wayne album. think Wayne, 'Ye and Snoop have figured out how to manipulate the autotune in a way T-Pain hasn't, with Wayne it just makes his ridiculous persona seem even more ridiculous. a good thing in my book. that "I Like It" song where he first started using autotune on that one mixtape cracked me up the first time i heard it

Cosign to the fullest.

Have you heard the Nas song from We Global, I'm On?? It goes hard (no homo)

And Camron's Crime Pays is coming this November. I demand a review when the time comes

honestly, an album by these two would be miles ahead of "best of both worlds" and would entertaining as hell.

Holy shit. I can't even make it past the first 30 seconds. The hellish intensity of the foolishness is just too much to handle.

Also, seriously, enough with the Auto-Tune, and that goes for EVERYONE, not just T-Pain. It's like everyone wants to be Roger & Zapp, but with way shittier music and no "Computer Love."

This was a science experiment gone horribly wrong - Michael Jackson and Tom Petty placed in the same transporter machine that mixed the DNA of Jeff Goldblum and the fly.

You're developing a nuts, Brandon Soderberg-equse comment count these days.

Maybe you shouldn't count out getting Breihan's old job after all.

Also, um, as someone who enjoyed 7 songs on Epiphany, this tepid, garish bullshit doesn't bode well for what I though could legitimately be one of the best pop albums of recent memory.

He's no Danity Kane, that's for damn sure.

I think I could tolerate Lil' Wayne a bit more if I never had to see him, again. Is this possible? I will not complain about his music anymore if anybody can make it possible that I never have to see his visage in my life again. It'll be compromise.

This is quite a good song—until Weezy shows up.

Foreshadowing of the grand T-Wayne album....

I can put you in a mansion somewhere in Wiscansin was all it took for me to stop listening...
Video is sick as hell though.

Ha ha, that line's pretty funny though you gotta admit.
