It seems there are barely a few bastions that Artificial Intelligence (AI) has not breached. The all-permeating technology has entered disciplines hitherto thought unreachable as a non-human entity. Perhaps that’s why even ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ got edgy when he heard an AI-generated song. It had legends like his friend Tupac, Biggie, and 50 Cents. Mike Tyson couldn’t believe his ears when the guest on his show introduced him to such an advanced setup.

Another user termed it plain Jane, “Bullshit!” 

An user probably never liked either Tupac or Biggie. But, he said, “He’s right. They were both fucking idiots.

Perhaps another detractor in the queue, according to one user, both the musicians talked too much and, as a result, paid a heavy price, “Fact is…they both ran their mouth & got smoked.

A fan was so perturbed by Yayo’s talking that he wished he could remain quiet to allow others to listen to the music, “YAYO, SHUTUP SO I CAN HEAR THE SONG DAMN LLS.” 

Reportedly, Artificial Intelligence uses algorithms that learn from pre-existing music and produce new music with a high degree of likeness. For example, an AI music generator makes an entirely new song, reworks an old piece, and, if required, provides instrumental backing to a live band.
