We were never really sure if 50 was using Auto-Tune because he thought it was dope, or because he thought it would be dope to poke fun at it by using it himself, or because he was desperate to connect with an audience that no longer seemed to be interested in him and his cohorts. Whatever it was, the results were surprisingly effective. In retrospect, the real ironic part of the song is when Young Buck spits, "Even if 50 dropped me I still wouldn't sign." LOL.
