Phonte of Little Brother calls Kanye’s new album “an act of cowardice”

phonte This article brought a great deal of content to my day not only because Phonte Coleman is the man, but because he totally dissed Ye’s new album. When asked about 808’s and Heartbreaks, He apparently said: “I didn’t like it, I was just like get the fuck out of here”, He also said that “I honestly think that it’s an act of cowardice” he continued “I think if you’re gonna make the creative leap to sing, then really sing. Let your voice come out, and let the people hear all the eccentricities and idiosyncrasies in your voice. That’s what makes you uniquely you… Imagine if Arethra Franklin used Autotune on Respect”. Phonte also said that he considered Kanye to be “biting” T-Pain.

I found this article to be absolutely hilarious. Phonte just confirmed what I’ve been feeling about this guy for the last 5 months. Autotune is for people that can’t sing or idiots. Phonte is one of those cats that a lot of people tend to listen to and I am anticipating the reaction in the rest of the Hip-Hop community.
