    Beats and melody are completely two seperate things. Do NOT confuse them.
    By 4/4 beats, I mean there is a kickdrum on every beat and a snare on the 2nd and 4th count.
    Previously to this, most hiphop beats were breakbeat.
    ok.
    well, you sound like you know more than me

    Can you hear the difference in both drumbeats? (ignoring the tempo)

    And it's even begin to corrupt artists e.g. from this to this.
    This particular example sprang to mind from your title. I really quite like this track and There Will Be Tears, and I'm not opposed to a change in musical direction, but if his whole album is this autotunious now that Kanye's taken him under his wing, it will be a little depressing.
