Album: 808s & Heartbreak
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam
No I.D.: “I had the music this time, and it was sounding good, and then Kanye came in and added certain aspects. Kanye wanted to put Wayne on it, so it was like the battle of the Auto-Tunes. Truthfully, I was never into Auto-Tune, but I knew with Kanye, he was going to take it somewhere else from a creative standpoint.
I felt it would be different than just beats and Auto-Tune—there was a real purpose with the sound. It was emotional outlet for him—it was much better than just an Auto-Tune album. And it’s held up really well.”
