Off Key 808s

YouTube - Baby ft Clipse what happened to that boy instrumental

^Is it just me, or is the song in the Key of F Sharp, yet the 808 in the key of E (two notes below F Sharp)? The strange thing is that it ACTUALLY SOUNDS GOOD...whenever I try to do this on my own beats, it sounds terrible. Does anyone have an idea of why/how this works?

Another thing I noticed...if you listen to alot of old Miami Bass (2 Live Crew etc), the 808s glide down about 50 cents towards the end of the tail...what's up with that? Was that done intentionally?
