Chamillionaire praises new Weird Al parody

Remember the infamous "Coolio incident" that happened in 1996? Well, looks like that is not going to be happening to "Weird Al" Yankovic this time because Chamillionaire has nothing but praise about Yankovic's new parody "White and Nerdy" (which if you're reading this post around the time I'm making it, you're now listening to it)...
The multi-platinum artist is happy to hear the new version, and holds no grudges towards Al. Cham said, "He's actually rapping pretty good on it, it's crazy...He's Grammy-nominated, man. He goes platinum. It's really an honor when he does that. I remember when he redid Michael Jackson's 'Bad.' Weird Al is not gonna do a parody of your song if you're not doing it big. You gotta be a big dog. He shot the video, and people will see it pretty soon. It's crazy."

Weird Al is highly regarded for his ability to closely mirror the original song, something impressed Chamillionaire as well.

"He's spittin' just like Krayzie Bone on the second verse...It's actually very funny if you listen to what he's saying. The way Krayzie is harmonizing, he does the same thing. It surprised me. I didn't know he could rap like that."

Now we know what Chamillionaire things about having Al parody his work. I can't wait to hear "Do I Creep You Out" and see what Taylor Hicks thinks about that one :-)

YES I'm crazy about Weird Al! I'm one of his old-school fans, from way back when he was doing "Eat It". The spinning head graphic can be found here. Enjoy :-)
