Wikipedia, hit it:

Yankovic has also started to explore digital distribution of his songs. On October 7, 2008, Yankovic released to the iTunes Music Store a parody of “Whatever You Like” from artist T.I., which Yankovic states he came up with two weeks prior. Yankovic stated that the benefit of digital distribution is that “I don’t have to wait around while my songs get old and dated — I can get them out on the Internet almost immediately.”

Whaaaaat? Freaking sweet. New song is up for streaming on his MySpace (how I found it). TI’s original here. The thing that strikes me is that TI repeats the same chorus/versus ad nauseum. Weird Al has too many rhymes to drop that he can’t repeat himself.

Congrats, TI. You’ve finally made it big.
