“Jay-Z may have killed autotune, but AmpLive wasn’t ready to let it go without giving it a proper eulogy. Amp bids farewell to 2009’s warm old safety blanket (Snuggy?) on the lead single from his upcoming 2010 solo debut Murder at the Discotek. The song features Bay Area emcee/ producer Trackademicks and Mr. Micro.”

“Gary is a Robot” is a video about, well, a robot named Gary. Created by mad scientist Dr. AmpLive in his California laboratory, Gary was conceived of equal parts swag, autotune, and duplication. Gary is a masterpiece to the ladies but his tendency to bite the swag of others rubs dudes the wrong way. This tendency to jock others’ style is to be his downfall. Trackademicks, whose verse serves as the centerpiece of the song, says, “It’s about the originality that’s attached to everything. It’s great when someone comes up with a novel idea, but it’s their idea.” In short, “You can only do you.”
