None Tonight Plus is an enhanced CD single that acts as an album sampler for the 2000 album Young World: The Future by Lil Zane. There are 4 additional album tracks with there being 9 tracks total. There’s a bonus interview not to mention the personal conversations. Priority Records and Worldwide Entertainment had used a CD single as an album sampler for the first time. Most of the tracks are clean because Lil Zane and Priority were trying to gain a younger audience for the record sales and management.
The main message for this single/album sampler and Young World:The Future to the children is that it’s cool to be young. That’s Lil Zane’s message to the kids. Be fly, cool, and stay in school.

People say Lil Zane is a 2Pac biter or being a carbon of 2Pac or Krazy of 504 Boyz. His flow and style is similar to 2Pac. That’s why Lil Zane is compared to 2Pac.

You see, None Tonight is one of those tracks to dance to when you’re up in the nightclub. The song None Tonight is a freaky fun dance/rap song. None Tonight is the shit!
The Bad Boy Remix of None Tonight was produced by fashion and rap mogul Puff Daddy (P. Diddy) was an upbeat more hyphy faster version of the original None Tonight song. Both Puff Daddy and Lil Zane liked the beats for the Bad Boy Remix of None Tonight. The quality in terms of sound and production is well polished without any flaws. The audio is well balanced. The Puffy remix is so crunk!
Only in this version of None Tonight, Lil Zane is trying to have some fun tonight. Lil Zane establishes clearly that he doesn’t want any drama or trouble tonight because he came to have fun in the club tonight. It’s obvious Lil Zane is having fun tonight.
The Mike Cee Remix of None Tonight has incorporated the sounds of Atlanta snap music and New Orleans bounce music over Dirty South beats with slight touch of upbeat go-go music. The Mike Cee Remix of None Tonight has that Collipark music sound from Atlanta prevalent in the track also. It’s a Planet Rock type of track due to its upbeat tempo and uptempo sound. Radio stations will love this song! Dancers and breakdancers will love this track also! The Mike Cee Remix is so very East Pointe and College Park. Good shit!
Lil Zane was inspired by the genres & sounds of dance music, hip hop/rap, electronic music, techno, and rock music when recording the Mike Cee Remix of None Tonight.

What Must I Do is very similar to a Keith Sweat song. Lil Zane’s a player and he’s not begging. He just wants attention. He craves attention. This joint is dedicated to that one girl that every player wants. Those other cats are not needed in her life. Lil Zane needs a lady in his life and she is the right one for him. Lil Zane will want to commence sexual intercourse and doesn’t give a fuck whether it’s dark or not. It’s already hot out and shirt, of course, comes off. Keith Sweat and 112 should have been on this particular song right here.
Akon is the one singing in the background vocals. Both Lil Zane and Akon sing their hearts out on Keith Sweat and 112 should have been on this particular song right here. What Must I Do seems to haven been inspired by the genres of Latin, pop, soul, and hip hop/rap.
You Must Really Love Me is a Love & Basketball themed, Omar Epps inspired love song written and recorded by Lil Zane. You Must Really Love Me is about a girl who must really love Lil Zane. It’s not about Lil Zane having a load of money or sports. It’s about being down with a chick. Think Love & Basketball where the chick is down with the dude the whole time.
You Must Really Love Me will remind you of the Omar Epps inspired Love & Basketball movie, It’s All About The Money by G Len and Let’s Stay Together by Al Green. You Must Really Love Me incorporates the genres of R&B, Soul, pop, and hip hop/rap.
Lil Zane was happy when he during the recording process of Callin’ Me because Lil Zane had just gotten a deal for a recording contract with Priority Records. Lil Zane knew that Callin’ Me would be a #1 single that would set it off and help launch his career as a rap artist. The chorus is supported by pop soul group 112. 112 was Lil Zane’s group. He even felt as if he were part of the 112 group despite not being a part of the group.
Priority promoted the image Lil Zane of being a pop rap sex symbol along with the group 112. Lil Zane never wanted to be a sex symbol. He just wanted to be young. He also wanted to aspire to be a rapper and an actor.
The music video was off the hook and off the chain! Callin’ Me ended up being Lil Zane’s #1 single as a conclusive hit and charting in the single digits on the BillBoard Charts. Callin’ Me set it off and launched his career into stardom as a celebrity sex symbol reaching an unprecedented level of popularity.

Lil Zane tackles problems of our world due to injustice that commonly occurs on Ways Of The World such as violence, drugs, political corruption, poverty, greed over capitalism, and living in a war zone. These are unfortunately ways of the world in many. This song is rather sad than upbeat as the rest of the songs on this single are. Lil Zane has obscenities hurled at his enemies. So basically Lil Zane tackles problems of our world in the best way he knows how by rapping about such matter in explicit detail. Lil Zane doesn’t want to sugarcoat reality. So to get his point across he raps with such explicit lyrics doing so.
Ways Of The World sounds very similar to sad heartfelt love ballad with the addition of those downtempo guitar notes played by Santana. Ways Of The World also sounds very similar to sad heartfelt love ballad written by Carlos Santana. The sample used in Ways Of The World is Shape Of My Heart by British pop/rock musician Sting. The Sting sample fits Ways Of The World perfectly.
I rate this single 5/5*****!!
