Snoop Dogg is speaking on the trend A.I.-generated music aka Artificial Intelligence.
Snoop Weighs In On Tupac & Biggie’s A.I. Album Collaboration
Snoop Dogg reacts to proposed A.I. album collaboration from Pac & Biggie.
In case you missed it, Ghostwriters used AI to create vocal realistic clips that sound like artists such as Drake, Kanye West, Jay-Z, and The Weeknd to create the song.
During a recent interview with Baller Alert on Wednesday (April 19), The Long Beach mogul answers if he want to hear A.I. generated joint collaboration. Between the two legendary rappers Tupac and Biggie using artificial intelligence.
Snoop Dogg seemingly has mixed feelings towards an AI-generated album featuring his late Death Row Records friend and the King of New York.
“I don’t really know about that, with the AI,” he said. “Because, that’s kinda like, computerized voices. You know? [But] I think if they can find some old tracks with their vocals, and put them together, that sounds better to me.”
AI is a hot topic in so many industries right now, but in music or the arts in general, it’s an especially sensitive conversation. Some people fear that they’ll lose their jobs, others worry that the value of human creativity is going to be diminished even more than it already has been, and many are concerned that they’ll be left behind as technology once again makes entire business models obsolete.
Artists themselves have also spoken out against such use of AI. Producer and engineer Young Guru, for example, has publicly expressed concern on multiple occasions, most recently in response to a fake AI-generated Jay-Z verse.
“People should not be able to take your Name, Image and Likeness without permission,” Guru said in March. “We have to add the voice to this law. We have to learn from past mistakes.”
So, where does the music industry go from here? Will it resist generative AI, or will it become a lucrative tool for artists and labels?
