"Without Me" is a hip-hop/rap song by American rapper Eminem. It was released as the lead single from his fourth studio album titled The Eminem Show in 2002, and re-released on his greatest-hits compilation album Curtain Call: The Hits in 2005. "Without Me" is one of Eminem's most successful singles, reaching #2 in the U.S. and #1 in many countries worldwide. The song was Eminem's return after the successful The Marshall Mathers LP, intended as a sequel to "The Real Slim Shady" and essentially saying that he is back to save the world. It also refers to Eminem's role in the music industry and his cultural effects. The song mocks a number of Eminem's critics, including Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne Cheney, the FCC and MTV, Chris Kirkpatrick, Limp Bizkit and Moby, as well as lampooning comparisons of Eminem to Elvis Presley as a white man succeeding commercially in a predominantly African-American art form. A line in the song also attacks his own mother for the lawsuit she filed against him for the lyrics of his debut single "My Name Is". The opening lyric "Two trailer park girls go round the outside" is based on the single "Buffalo Gals" by Malcolm McLaren, while the introduction which is spoken by Obie Trice "Obie Trice, real name no gimmicks." is sampled from his own track "Rap Name". The round the outside lyrics could be considered a subliminal diss to Canibus, who used a similar line in Box Cutta Blade Runna, released on "C! True Hollywood Stories" which makes numerous disses against Eminem. A sample from the track, the phrase "nobody listens to techno", became an underground techno bootleg anthem produced by Deep Dish and Danny Howells under the alias Size DDD (Deep Dish Danny). The song was played by many well-known DJs to satirize the claim. The song was also parodied on All That, a skit show on Nickelodeon, as "Without Meat". It was also parodied on MADtv, a skit show on FOX, as "Whats on TV?". In the second verse a line samples the intro from "The Real Slim Shady". It was also parodied by LittleKuriboh, creator of "Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series", titled "Without Yugi". The background saxophone riff was sampled for Drunkenmunky's 2002 club hit "E" (help·info). Some of the lyrics are altered on the clean version, such as "This is about to get heavy". Also, "Jiggle your hips" is placed to get rid of a sexually explicit remark in the 1st verse. The line I know that you got a job Ms. Cheney/but your husband's heart problem's complicating is a reference to the then Vice-President Dick Cheney's constant and recurring heart problems. Cheney has had four heart attacks since 1976. "Without Me" was Eminem's most successful single at that point. The song reached the number one position in many charts from various countries, including the U.K., Australia and New Zealand for 7 weeks. It also reached the number two spot in the U.S. Hot 100. "Lose Yourself" and "Crack a Bottle" are his only songs to have ever charted higher than "Without Me" on the Hot 100, both of which reached number one. "Without Me" was nominated for Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards of 2003 (losing to Norah Jones' song "Don't Know Why"), being Eminem's first song to receive a Grammy nomination in a major category. It also received a nomination for Best Male Rap Solo Performance but lost that award as well to the song "Hot in Herre" by rapper Nelly. In 2009, the song was honored by Pitchfork Media as the 251st greatest song of the Aughties.

the original song is by Jim Jones - We Fly High Cordazar Calvin Broadus (born October 20, 1971), better known by his stage name Snoop Dogg, is a Grammy Award-nominated American rapper, record producer, and actor. Snoop is best known as an MC in the West Coast hip hop scene, and for being one of producer Dr. Dre's most notable protégés. He popularized the catch phrase suffix -izzle, a slang term or suffix that had been in use for decades, but not nearly to the extent that it currently permeates the pop and hip hop music industry as well as general usage. Snoop Dogg was a Crip gang member while in high school; shortly after graduation, he was arrested for cocaine possession and sentenced to three years in prison, then began his music career in 1992 after his release. He was discovered by Dr. Dre and collaborated on several tracks on Dre's solo debut, The Chronic and on the titular theme song to the film Deep Cover. Snoop's debut album, Doggystyle, was released in 1993 under Death Row Records. Doggystyle went quadruple platinum and spawned several hit singles, including "What's My Name" and "Gin & Juice." In 1996, Snoop Dogg was cleared of charges over his bodyguard's 1993 murder of Philip Woldemariam. His second album, 1996's Tha Doggfather, was his last release for Death Row before he signed with No Limit Records, with which he recorded three albums from 1998 to 2001. Snoop then signed with Priority/Capitol/EMI Records in 2002, which released his album Paid tha Cost to Be da Boss, and then he signed with Geffen Records in 2004 for his next three albums. He also joined forces with his cousin Nate Dogg and emcee Warren G as the supergroup 213 for an album in 2004. In addition to music, Snoop Dogg has also starred in motion pictures and hosted several television shows: Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, and Dogg After Dark. He also coaches a youth football league and high school football team. He has also run into many legal troubles, some of which caused him to be legally banned from the UK and Australia. He is the cousin of emcees Nate Dogg, Daz Dillinger, RBX and Lil' Half Dead and the cousin of R&B singers Brandy and Ray J. Starting September 2009, Snoop was hired by EMI as the chairman of a reactivated Priority Records. His tenth studio album, Malice n Wonderland was released December 8, 2009.

Buy the album 'Euphoria' (Official website) http://assets.umusic.co.uk/polydor/enrique/preorder/ "Tonight (I'm Fuckin' You)," better known as "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)," is a song by Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias. It features American rapper Ludacris and producer DJ Frank E. The song was released to the US radio on November 1, 2010, and it was released digitally on November 22, 2010. The song was included on the French Limited Edition of Euphoria as well as the New Edition of "Euphoria" which was released in 2011. The official remix features American rapper Pitbull. The clean version of this song was also performed at Fuse's Z100 Jingle Ball 2010 on December 16, 2010. Single by Enrique Iglesias featuring Ludacris and DJ Frank E/Luciana from the album Euphoria Released November 22, 2010 Format Digital download Genre Pop, Rap, Dance Length 3:51 Label Universal Republic, Universal Music Latino Writer(s) Enrique Iglesias, Lauren Christy, Christopher Bridges Producer DJ Frank E Critical reception: Matthew Wilkening from Aol Radio Blog said that the song "aims directly for the dance floor with a galloping, club-ready dance beat, along with an insistent, heavily synthesized keyboard zipping all over the place. [...] Enrique's slightly processed vocals drip with confidence, and depending on which version you hear, a healthy dose of profanity as he demands some loving". Erica Y. Lopez from Fox News Latino said "With the star power Iglesias brings to the table and a very danceable beat accompanying the track, it is conceivable that the clean version would be a hit in it's own right -- but add one of the heaviest cuss words in the English language [...] it is basically club ready". Lyrics content: The song was criticized for the "raunchiness" of the content of the lyrics, and when MTV News caught up with Iglesias at a rehearsal for the AMAs, he maintained that "isn't meant to twist up any knickers, but rather is just good, kind-of clean fun. [...] I thought it was a strong statement ... to say in a song, but it's fun," [...] "It's probably what a lot of guys and girls think about at times, but they don't have the guts to say. It's pretty straightforward. Music has become so direct and you can say whatever you want, which is cool. At the end of the day, it's just a song — you don't have to take it seriously. You can have fun with it". A clean version of the song, retitled "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)," is also available and is the more common version of the song.
