DMX is inspired by Bill Withers audio for the song aint no sunshine. Bill sings his version saying aint no sunshine when she is gone, its not warm when she’s away, she’s always gone too long anytime, when she is away. DMX version of the song is aint no sunshine in this song, only darkness everyday. DMX used samples of the song to record the soundtrack for the movie Exit Wounds. It fits in with Ferguson’s video’s because it shows how music that is played today have been remixed from orignial versions. They listen to the original and put certain lyrics in their own words and remix the sound.
The Original by Bill Withers
The Sample by DMX
