Ursa Maja – Moving to the Moon (Prod. Jared Robinson) [Audio]
Moose Jaw, SK – C.J.E.’s own Ursa Maja just hit us with his latest single titled “Moving to the Moon” (produced by Jared Robinson). This track is hilarious. Ursa throws some serious shade at a lot of rap cats in the game – namely, those who are using autotune in an attempt to make themselves better artists.
And the idea rolls a little deeper than that. Ursa is calling out any artist who attempts to improve his or her natural craft with some sort of technology: “I sound really good in my head/ But from the looks on all your faces right now I can tell I’m singing out of tune/ But at least I don’t use autotune.” Which is a hilarious commentary on those who think that autotune is a tool for artistic improvement. Because it’s not. Auto tune is really just a fancy special effect. It can’t make anyone a better singer. Check it out via YouTube after the jump.
So let’s be real, here: honing skills requires actual hustle and practise. Sure, you could speed up your own flow on an audio-editting program. But then you might find yourself caught in a street cypher spitting one-bar-per-minute. And the other rap cats with devour you for lyrical dinner.
Ursa doesn’t call anyone out by name. But you catch the drift – dude really doesn’t like autotune, and stuff. And he wants everyone to move to the moon because there’s no autotune there.
