Xzibit Presents…The Inspiration


When it comes to songs that inspire me, I’m going to have to go with the following:

Public Enemy “Fight the Power” (1989)

*This was a serious one for me…The message is strong and you can still play it today…

Ice Cube “The Product” (1990)

*Cube is someone that I respect and have been listening to forever…

Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth “They Reminice Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” (1992)

*I used to play this song over and over and over and over again!!!

I’m at the House Of Blues in Anaheim tonight…see you there!

    Damn, will they get somebody who’s not so busy to write up in here.

    For real, who hasn’t heard these songs a million times.

    X is tight with the lyrics though, won’t lie.

    Blogging is about expressing what you’re thinking….lmao you dumb ass cats there is no way to be wrong or right….take you’re young asses somewhere and get off that bullshit

    The problem with yya’ll is you have too much time on your hands. For some people, asking them to write 3 blogs in a 5 day period actually fucks with their schedule. Enter xzibit.

    Its called being on the grind.

  • daesonesb

    Plus they reminisce over you is nails. Rediculously great. One of the best beats period.

    Too many ppl hatin on an all round entertainer.

    He got skills on the mike,
    A more than descent actor with potential to be very good(DEFinately, BETTER THAN J, DAME, PUFFY, 50, GAME, AND ALL SOUTHERN RAPPER except Andre 3000.
    And is a good host on the small screen aswell as on stage if he needed to

    bottom line… yall niggas stop hatin

    Especially that bitchass DIDDIBOP/ anthony sergie

    thats prolly an alias but I still hate his ass

    Check out X’s “black & Brown”

  • UptownBoss

    Better than all Southern rappers? What? Ever heard of Bun B? Or Scarface? How about Lil Wayne, Tip, Trick, Willie D, Juvey, Mystikal, the list goes on playboy. Don’t hate on the South cause they are doing units.

    How the hell can X be “OVER”rated if he is pretty obsolete in the rap game? He haven’t had a single bump on the radio, people on the East coast don’t really pump his music (although they recognize he got skillz, no doubt) .. and he ain’t really hittin’ in the West cuz he doesn’t make that traditional “gangsta” music. Being overrated means that he gets more recognition than he should … THIS NIGGA IS HARDLY EVEN TALKED ABOUT … He’s put albums out that cats don’t even know about cuz there’s never singles to them … how the hell is X overrated??? But i’ll tell you this much, he’ll put it on nigga (no Lance Bass) in a battle …

  • Mr.Me

    Whens the last time X release a single that sounded like it was influenced by 1 of those tracks up there? lol… I dont belive him he needs more Seagrams

  • Mr.Me

    MTV an X stop fuckin wit WestCoast Customs cuz the FED’s was investigatin them because they were takin airbags outta peoples whips an puttin TV’s an shit in them an thats against government regulations…..an they was buildin secret stash spots in peoples whips. Thats some Justin Timberlake shit X.

    Mad Mike wanna be famous so you know he jumped ship.

  • H-MAN

    Big Proof and I could merk anyone on tha mic anytime…




  • Voltio

    X is a mtv-assed pussy nigga who got a nice scent of the sell-out-cheese them crackers put out in front of his stankass.

    ‘it’s a shame, niggaz in tha rap game only for the money and the fame’…

    yeah, it is a goddamn shame u pimp-deez-nutz sellout muthafucka! hahahaha
