Xzibit to release LP

Releases

Xzibit

The ‘Pimp My Ride’ phase of his professional life being over at last, Xzibit is now back to the serious business of making rap music, and thus will break his six year studio hiatus with a new LP titled ‘Napalm’. Set for release on 8 Oct, it features special guests in Wiz Khalifa, Game, Blink 182’s Travis Barker and Xzbit’s late mother Trena Joiner, who is heard on ‘1983’ reading cassette-recorded excerpts from a novel she wrote.

And now to a modest quote from the man himself: “If you know hip hop, you’re going to love and appreciate ‘Napalm’. The tone of the album is a testament to what I’ve been through in the last six years. I’m ready to kick some ass!”

Xzibit has also made a four-part ‘v-log’ documenting his experiences in Iraq (whilst shooting the video for the record’s title single, in case your wondered), and you can watch the first episode of that here:
