Eminem is paying his full respects to a master of hip-hop.
In the wake of Nate Dogg's untimely death today, the real Slim Shady praised the late MC for a career that influenced a generation of artists.
Here's what he had to say:
"Nate's voice in music will never be replaced. He helped create the blueprint for West Coast hip-hop, and I was one of the lucky people who had the privilege to work with him and the honor to have him as a friend.
Avril Lavigne's long-awaited Goodbye Lullaby debuts at #4.
Sometimes the hardest, bumpiest rides are the ones that get you to the sweetest destination. That's the lesson Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco is basking in this week as he celebrates the #1 debut of his third album, Lasers.
After a difficult, oft-delayed birth, the record will make its mark on the Billboard 200 next week when it takes over the top spot thanks to sales of more than 204,000, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan. That's more than enough to end the two-week #1 reign of British soul singer Adele, whose 21 drops a spot to #2 as sales dipped to 133,000, giving her an impressive three-week total of more than 653,000.
Contestants will sing songs released in their birth years on Wednesday's show.
