Weird Al completely rocks. Here’s Al’s parody of Lose Yourself from Eminem’s 8 Mile album and movie.

One of Weird Al’s better parodies. It would have been better if it had come out like 5 years ago when the song was still relevant, but funny nonetheless.
It is interesting that no one that noticeable has become popular remaking songs in the way that Weird Al has. I did see one called “First Asian Boy”, which was a parody of Kanye West’s “American Boy”, but other than that and a few minor attempts from others, Weird Al appears to have the market share locked up at this time.
Weird Al is most certainly a lyrical genius in addition to his abilities as an actor to mock and mimic the various mannerisms and delivery styles of his victims.
I have always been partial to his early 90′s hit “Amish Paradise”, a remake of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” and would recommend that you check it out if you’re bored.
Have a great weekend,
Damn, I remember when I was crazy about that Eminem song. He hasn’t released anything in a while now, now that I think of it.
The first video is quite funny.
