Wyclef JeanWith the current auto-tune craze sweeping the music world over the past few years, and Jay-Z’s recent call for the its death, Wyclef Jean has created a funny parody song to poke fun at the robotic sounding effect and how artists use it as a crutch.

In a recent post, via his blog (WyclefJean.wordpress.com), the rapper posted the song called “Mr. Auto-Tune” with the help of Nick Cannon.

“This song is a parody of the current craze sweeping the music world, auto-tune,” wrote Wyclef. “But don’t get it twisted, auto-tune might get you a hit single for the moment, but it can never substitute for raw talent.”


The lyrics of the track is as follows:

Wyclef: SO TONIGHT, YEAH / TELL THE DJ TURN IT LOUD, YEAH / EVERYBODY TO THE DANCE FLOOR / WE GONNA SING ALL NIGHT YEAH

I’M MISTER AUTOTUNE / IF YOU SING OFF KEY /FOR A SMALL FEE I CAN MAKE YOU A CELEBRITY

Nick Cannon: I WANNA MAKE MONEY

Wyclef: THEN ALL YOU GOTTA DO IS PAY ME / AND I WILL TURN THIS THING INTO A KARAOKE PARTY YOU’LL BE A SUPERSTAR

Nick Cannon: I’LL BE A SUPERSTAR

Wyclef: ONCE THEY HEAR YOUR VOICE MAN / YOU’RE GONNA BE A SUPERSTAR

Nick Cannon: NOW I’M A SUPERSTAR,
