Lol! I’m already a Trey Songz fan….but I love that he straight names names on his version of “Death of Autotune”….I’m sure Jay-Z will get a kick out of it too. Now obviously, this isnt like picking a fight with Kellz at his height, but its still very interesting. Especially because I hear R.Kelly is working on his “comeback.” *ick*

Trey Songz “Death of Autotune” (R.Kelly diss)

(thanks to Mr. X)

UPDATE: Trey Songz blogged about his unexpected diss track. Personally I think its great. And on point. I hope Trey doesnt feel like he has to backtrack because we all agree with him. All the rational people that is.

“…..The R. Kelly we all grew to love was innovative, witty, & trendsetting. If you were to say that R. Kelly has excited you musically as of late, I would question your ears. When I heard JayZ’s “Death of Autotune” my first thought was when will R. Kelly stop using it; The King of R&B with a autotune filled mixtape (not to mention a auto tuned “Double Up” album) disappoints me. If throwing rocks at the throne wakes up the King, consider them thrown.”

The complete blog statement after the jump….including all the nicey nice soften the blow parts, lol…

“First off, anyone who is familiar with my history knows I’m a HUGE R. Kelly fan & have been inspired by him since my early beginnings musically. So while some may take this as disrespect, those who truly listen to the lyrics will understand my urging him to go harder. I’ve been compared to R. Kelly since my career began while we all can recall R. Kelly stepping on the scene sounding AND looking JUST like Aaron Hall. He demolished his sound and then went on to build his own which was a mixture of many others. We all are familiar with his signature adlib “Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh” which he grabbed from Lenny Williams & let’s not forget the “Bump & Grind” remix which started his Isley Brother’s Vibe. Soon enough he assisted Ron Isley in becoming Mr. Biggs & while keeping Ronald close he kept him on his toes. The R. Kelly we all grew to love was innovative, witty, & trendsetting. If you were to say that R. Kelly has excited you musically as of late, I would question your ears. When I heard JayZ’s “Death of Autotune” my first thought was when will R.
