    So I've always been on the Shing02 side of the "who is the best rapper?" question. In fact I've always found Wayne's dependance on autotune a form of cheating and I have not been able to take him seriously as an artist...until this.

    Look, I don't listen to the radio so I only just heard this for the first time yesterday, but to me it redefines the path that hiphop is going.
    I had no idea he could play guitar, much less rock and be good at it.
    This is like...rapper meets punk rock, and I believe in my heart of hearts that Lil' Wayne was born to be a screamer in a hardcore punk band.

    As for Nicki Minaj, this only provides more evidence to the fact that she is amazing.

    Knockout is a fucking GREAT song! icon_biggrin.gif It's breaking down genre barriers a little bit more by applying autotune from pop to some good ol rock music. And shit, I just fucking love autotune (don't care if you hate it). The melody of this track is awesome too. Moreover, the social implications are great as it shows Black people (once again) can make some awesome rock music. I just hope Chris Brown doesn't try to copy this style.
