Studio Version of New Kanye Single Mercifully Features Auto-Tune

Arr! 'Twas a fine show.

Speaking of rappers of dubious singing ability, blogger-musician Kanye West has posted the studio version of "Love Lockdown" on his Website. As we mentioned before, it’s supposedly the lead single off his new album 808’s & Heartbreak, tentatively slotted for a December 16 release date. It’s an atypical affair – Kanye doesn’t rap at all, choosing rather to bare his soul via the T-Pain machine. But also somewhat standard for the hardest working man in showbiz, in that it is awesome.
