Auto-Rap App Turns Any Dialog Into Rap Performance With A Few Clicks

One of those "I'm sure this has been done but too lazy to check" moments.
  [vote for,

1- Take a recording of anybody talking about anything, grandma telling the boys to dress up warm because it's snowing outside, the weatherman on TV giving the forecast, the man on youtube explaining how to replace a faucet.

2- Take any recording of a beat, riff or instrumental song with a clear rhythm and input it into the program as well.

The app analyzes the music, cuts the words in the sentences up and quantizes them into a rap that fits perfectly with the chosen backup music.

I know this had been done manually, so to be clear, this is all done by the program. You'd input it and hear the original rap for the first time, the placement and length of the words determined by the analysis of the background music.

I'd add a slider that could control where the words fell in the timeline. So for instance it might say "..Put.on..you're boots.andgloves......" (each dot being a 16th note) and slide it to say "Put...on..yourboots.andgloves......".

Could even have it just repeat one line with different arrangements of the words.

And goes without saying, you could just input videos of people talking and these would be cut up, quantized and the segments be moved around and placed in various musical rhythmic patterns.

       There is crappy modern corporate mumble rap, but the folk art that originated from the streets decades ago could be amazing in my opinion.   

       Put a link up of something that I think is very good, if you're open to it start from 3:30.   

       Then for comparison modern corporate mumble rap that celebrates having zero talent yet living the Kardashian lifestyle of hundreds of millions of dollars for basically being an idiot.   

       That being said, one's person's art is another's shart. I like some of the old stuff personally but to each his own obviously.

       Okay, that kind of sucks imo but it's definitely art. There's melody, a story with a narrative, meter, rhyming, and some degree of skill. I'm going to have to change my opinion to MOST rap is not art.

       Fair enough. That being said it’s perfectly fine to hate all rap.   

       I can’t stand most country music and hate all mariachi music. Love my country and Hispanic brothers and sisters, the music just gives me a tummy ache.

       There are ai interfaces in existence that can do this now. See link(s) There are tons more than in the links.

       Not even close. These are glorified sequencers that have been around for decades. The only thing new is they've added a couple of useless algorithms to create an annoyance factor that would take a human years to create. One dead giveaway that there's no similarity between the things in the link and this is that this is a vocal manipulation tool and the stuff in the links doesn't feature any vocals, it's all instrumental.   

       This idea is to take somebody's speaking, most preferably with video, and rhythmically quantize it to a music guide track. (Something that's very commonly done these days by hand, chopping up videos and moving the individual words around to fit into a music track, usually very badly.) Now you can currently use an off the shelf quantization program and just throw it on a vocal track, but it'll sound like a broken record skipping at random, basically turn it into noise.   

       Still might have been done as like I've suggested, just not in that link.
