Damn.. technology be crazy. All credit to this youtuber I stumbled upon. I am assuming he provided the beats and wrote the lyrics.. made a song that Tupac himself would prob be proud of.
A Tupac and Nipsey collaboration would be insane.
I don't know how I feel about this though.. how advanced technology is getting, and how we can literally make new songs using AI voice filters of dead people.
Anyways just thought I'd share because I know most of ya'll grew up on Tupac.
Clicked on the thread, ready to hate it, but this is the best rap song I've heard in about 20 years. 2pac was enough and then to send it over the top a NATE DOGG hook?! hip hop has been trash for a while. I'll take AI pac over any 21st century crap. _________________ http://chickhearn.ytmnd.com/
As someone who idolized Pac as a young man growing up in the 90s, I love his music, but am not sure how I feel about the idea of AI generated music.
90s was the golden age of rap, I don't really enjoy much of today's rap offering, think the substance just isn't there in the music these days (with a few exceptions of course). _________________ Lakers, Chargers, Dodgers, Arsenal FC.
Absolutely, the estate should get royalties. There were some other AI songs that were shut down earlier this year for infringement. Google, Universal Music and Warner Music have been negotiating to create some royalty agreements and for something to allow artists to opt in to AI tools.
When this does get all settled, I do think it's a little weird for an artist's estate to allow creation of new stuff they never intended. But I think as long as it's labeled so you know this is a "what if" kind of deal or a parody that seems okay. But picture someone with entirely different politics than the artist creating some art they would never say or get behind. Is that a problem? I'm all for "what ifs" as they can be thought provoking. But it does feel like you need to be careful where you go with it.
