Snoop Dogg calls A.I. generated music ‘Outta Hand’ after hearing Michael Jackson cover

As A.I. generated music gains momentum, Snoop Dogg joins the ranks of artists voicing their apprehension over the emerging technology.

In a world where algorithms reign supreme, and the lines between man and machine become increasingly blurred, the rise of AI-generated music has been both a fascination and a fear for artists and listeners alike. From Michael Jackson to JAY-Z, AI-generated tunes have been cropping up all over the internet, garnering millions of streams and igniting a heated debate in the music industry.

Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg is the latest to chime in on the trend, and it’s safe to say he’s not a fan. In an Instagram post featuring an AI-generated cover of C-Murder’s “Down 4 My N’s” by an AI-generated Michael Jackson, Snoop wrote, “This shit is outta hand. I’ve done a lot of things in my life I’m not proud of. But I ain’t done nothing bad enough to deserve hearing this.” Ouch. Snoop’s not pulling any punches, and we love him for it.

Snoop Dogg is not alone in his discomfort with the idea of AI-generated music. Thomas Bangalter, one half of the iconic electronic duo Daft Punk, recently shared his concerns about the rise of artificial intelligence and why he doesn’t want to be a robot in today’s world. Bangalter’s concerns go beyond music, and he questions the obsolescence of man in the face of technology. “The last thing I would want to be, in the world we live in, in 2023, is a robot,” he said.

But not all artists are shying away from the possibilities of AI-generated music. JoJo recently praised the technology, while Grimes has encouraged fans to use her voice for their own AI-generated tunes, as long as she gets a cut of the profits. It’s a divisive issue, and one that is sure to only become more relevant in the coming years.

As we continue to grapple with the implications of AI-generated music, one thing is certain: it’s not going away anytime soon. And while Snoop Dogg may see it as “outta hand,” others see it as a new frontier in the ever-evolving landscape of music. Whatever your stance may be, one thing is for sure: we’ll be keeping a close eye on the robots and their musical creations, whether we like it or not.
