Quick News on Yung Joc and Xzibit
Atlanta rapper Yung Joc is scheduled to perform at the Atlantic Beach Bikefest in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina this upcoming Memorial Day weekend. According to the Sun News, Joc was recruited by the Harley-Davidson motorcycle company to mark its first year of participation in the popular event. While no show times have been announced, Harley spokeswoman Lynn Bonner says that Joc will likely perform and sign autographs on Saturday afternoon at the Beach’s Colonial Mall.
According to the Herald Sun, Xzibit has signed with Illusive Records to distribute his album, Full Circle, in Australia. The album was originally released in the U.S. last fall on KOCH Records. “I am in total control of every aspect of my career,” Xzibit told the Herald Sun. “I’m doing what I want when I want to do it. This has never been about a need to go back to my roots. Even though the popularity of my film and television career have taken off, it doesn’t mean I have to make music to appeal to that audience.” Xzibit also stated he worked with longtime Public Enemy producer, Keith Shocklee of the Bomb Squad, for the Australian release of Full Circle. “It’s not about working with who’s hot,” X said. “I do stuff that I feel and that I’m inspired by. I’ve worked with [Dr.] Dre and Timbaland. I’ve worked with a lot of different producers, but there is a special place in my heart for the Bomb Squad.”
