    He's got a great vocal range, but I subconsciously always get disappointed hearing him on some tracks...might be because of overexposure and the generic fatigue that comes with his music. Like on Waves, I do wish it was someone else

    Yeah, I don't mind him on certain songs (ngl I'm a sucker for that Transformer song he did with Weezy like 10 years ago), but I think fatigue is a good word for it. I can't take much of him without getting bored.

    The man can sing, of course, but I feel like artists who are a lot less gifted in that department do a lot more with their voice and use their shortcomings to their advantage. On a personal level, I'd rather hear someone like Thug, Greedo, Gates, Future, Quavo, Makonnen, Kanye, Chance...anyone with a more unique, non-traditional singing voice over someone like CB pretty much any time. Even Drake falls into this department of "non-traditional" somewhat, I'd say.

    Absolutely, I can think of times where those guys can create a more genuine experience through their perceived lack of classical vocal training, like look at 808's and the use of auto-tune to add that paradoxical emotional weight by sounding more robotic...but it goes both ways, I can't imagine listening to say Radiohead if Thom Yorke's voice wasn't so incredible.

    Very true, but I'd say Yorke's voice isn't so poppy/manufactured-sounding in the same way CB's is.

    Fair enough but I do think he sounds great on Waves. Maybe it's the combo of he & Ye or the beat but CB is the highlight of that song to me
    It sounds like a Chris Brown song. I think if you had someone else on there besides Kanye or even if it was just a CB solo it'd have been a hit

    yeah because t pain wasn't using it perfectly before 2008. This is coming from 808s fan. I love that album even though I cringe to Robocop sometimes but whatever. Kanye has never had a better song than Pain's I'm Sprung in 2005 (comparing autotuned tracks). And I gave that example because it was way before Kanye used autotune...
