That's gotta be Weird Al. I read somewhere where Al asked Eminem if he could do a parody of Lose Yourself, and he was turned down. Al must have done it anyway, and it leaked somehow.

Under some statute, he is allowed to parody the song. Eminem thought that the song world hurry his image and didn't give him permission but he doesn't have to

I think in the past, Weird Al always got permission to do his parodies. I know he asked Michael Jackson and he who loved the idea so much he let Al use the same set he used for the Bad video. Also did Eat It with MJ's approval.

Yeah Weird Al does ask permission, but because he changes the lyrics it's considered enough of a deviation from the original to be its own original composition. Another much more minor parody band that I'm a big fan of has discussed the issue at length on their website
