Meek Mill Reacts To Deceased Father’s Voice Used In AI Song

The Philly rapper is just the latest to be shocked by what AI is doing to hip-hop.

Meek Mill is learning the strangeness of AI in real time as someone used his deceased father’s voice in a rap song.

On Wednesday (May 10), the Philly rapper took to Twitter to react to the song, which incorporates Robert Parker’s voice rapping over an instrumental of Snoop Dogg’s 1999 Dr. Dre-produced track “B***h Please.”

"A.I. wrote a rap about my dad and this what he said WTF," Meek captioned a snippet of the AI-generated song.

On the fake song, Meek’s dad raps: “I died in a shootout, just tryin’ to feed my fam / But death couldn’t stop me, I’m back in the lab / My son Meek Mill, he’s the light of my life / Gotta watch over him, I’m back from the afterlife / I’m Big Robbie and I’m back with a plan / I’m comin’ back to life to see my fam / My soul’s come alive, I’m gonna make it right / Back from the grave, I’m gonna fight the fight.

The incident is just the latest involving artificial intelligence and music. Previously, fans had been initially tricked by an AI-generated song by Drake and The Weeknd called “Heart on My Sleeve” and created by TikTok user Ghostwriter977. Frank Ocean’s fans were also recent targets of a scam involving AI-generated songs.
