My raps don’t have melodies
Refers to his statement that it is necessary to understand melodies to use AutoTune correctly, or you shouldn’t at all.
“T-Pain, he does great melodies. If you listen to Kanye, great melodies. If you listen to [West’s] ‘Say You Will’ or ‘Heartless,’ great melodies. [Lil Wayne and T-Pain’s] ‘Lollipop’ was a fantastic melody. Everybody can’t do it. Let them guys do it. They got their little niche, let’s move on.”
However, Jay’s raps don’t even have melody it’s all raw, so no melodies need to be understood. This is one of the reasons he won’t use it.
