I couldn’t ask for anything more,” states Hip Hop pioneer and celebrity partner Xzibit.

King T Says Dr. Dre & Xzibit Motivated Him To Rap Again

Posted 27 March 2013 by XzibitCentral.com | | 2 Comments »

King T recently sat down with HipHopDX where the hip hop super star talked about how Xzibit and Dre motivated him to rap again:

HipHopDX: Not too long ago, you came out with Tha Triflin’ Mixtape. It had been over five years since you’d done a mixtape or an album. What led you to put it out, with the time apart from music?

King T: Really, when I got around Dr. Dre. Xzibit took me up to Dre’s house. This was after a long [bout] of depression. I lost my daughter, like three years ago, in a car accident. So I was kinda down. Me and my wife had separated for a minute. I was just goin’ through some things and wasn’t really feelin’ like doin’ no music or anything like it; it was just a bad time for me. Xzibit had called me up and asked me to start hangin’ around, ‘cause he was workin’ on the Napalm album. And he was writin’ for [Dr. Dre’s] Detox. So I was just hangin’ with him for a month or so. We went out and messed with Dre to do some things on Detox. And just fuckin’ with Dre and dealin’ with X and watchin’ what was goin’ on, I just wanted to get back into it. It gave me that umph—that spirit I needed to just pick up the pen and start writin’ and lovin’ the music, lovin’ Hip Hop again. That’s all it was.

HipHopDX: The first person you worked with outside of your crew was Marley Marl on the remix…

King T: It was a dream come true. That was the happiest moment. Working with Marley [Marl] on the [“Played Like A Piano”] remix was a dream come true then. I gotta say, the best moment in my life so far that brought me back from the dead with this Hip Hop shit was when all of us went in the studio with Xzibit and did the “Louis XIII.” It was classic.

Xzibit Blasts USAir After Flight Attendant Calls Police On Him

Posted 22 March 2013 by XzibitCentral.com | , | 3 Comments »

Xzibit goes public about a USAirways flight attendant this morning who dialed police after the rapper refused to remain seated with his seat-beat securely fastened.

Xzibit has endorsed Sprite and endorsed his longtime MTV show Pimp My Ride, but one brand the Los Angeles, California-based emcee/actor is not a fan of is USAirways. Today (March 22) the Likwit Crew member took to Twitter to tell his side of a story where a flight attendant threatened to have him arrested:

Ha_ flight attendant on US air tried to get me arrested. I told her to fuck herself. Cops showed up and took a pics with me. She was pissed.

I hate when people with no power threaten you with "calling the police" That strikes no fear in my heart. Alternative,dont be a raging bitch

Man. I can't wait to get home. And do me a favor, dont EVER book me on US AIR again. They treat people like dogs and prisoners. #lame.

According to Mr. X-to-the-Z, he tried using the bathroom during what was believed to have been a time the flight crew asked passengers to remain seated. When X ignored warnings, the female flight attendant allegedly called police. When the plane landed at L.A.X. Airport, Xzibit says that police were there—but only seeking autographs from the former Loud Records artist and longtime Dr. Dre affiliate. No arrests were made.

A name familiar to millions across the world - a hustler in the music, film, and television world, X is a performer as likely to be seen on-stage thrilling listeners in Germany as he is on cinema screens in blockbuster franchises like xXx 2 and The X Files: I Want To Believe. Let him tell it and he is simply "a self-made man from poverty." Throughout his career he's embodied a Do-It-Yourself mentality, resulting in the Platinum recording artist becoming a superstar with a formidable fanbase that spans the entire globe.

X began his grind to superstardom as he came to the attention of attentive Hip-Hop listenersas a member of the revered rap collective Likwit Crew. Founder and West Coast Hip-Hop veteran King Tee enlisted raucous group Tha Alkaholiks and newcomer X into the clique as original Likwit representatives. From there, the tenacious X unleashed his 1996 debut, At The Speed Of Life. Considered by many to be an underground rap classic, it arguably made him the breakout star of the Likwit collective. The album also spawned a definitive West Coast Hip-Hop cut in the cautionary "Paparazzi." "That song still gets a crazy reception from my fans," says its creator. "It first blew up overseas, but it ended up travelling everywhere. It's a timeless record." With enlightened Hip-Hop listeners swarming to offer their approval, he swiftly followed up this release with another Hip-Hop staple. Sophomore release 40 Dayz & 40 Nights was lauded by critics and fans alike, as its lead single "What U See Is What U Get" spent an astonishing six weeks atop the chart on BET's Rap City... read more at the Xzibit Biography page.


Pimp My Ride DVD Cover Season 1 Mr X to the Z and the good people at West Coast Customs make people's cars go from dirt to pimped in this 30 minute show that airs weekly on MTV. Featuring Los Angeles-area aftermarket shop West Coast Customs, “MTV Pimp My Ride” selects young, automotively challenged Southern Californians and transforms their rust buckets into triumphs.

For many young adults, getting the insurance or finance to fix up their cars can be difficult and taking out a car loan is often no an option. “It’s not just about the cars anymore,” X said, but also “the boost that these kids get in their self-esteem. You can see it in their faces.” "Everybody has had a bucket in their life," said X, using L.A. slang for a clunker. He has had two of his own rides — a Hummer H2 and a Mercedes-Benz S500 — "pimped" at West Coast Customs. A typical episode begins with X paying a surprise visit to the viewer and humorously highlighting the car's numerous problem areas. Then it's off to West Coast Customs, where a team of professionals disassembles the vehicle and completely refurbishes it with custom rims and paint, plush interiors and the latest in lighting, car audio and video accessories. Wheels, Grilles, Body Kits, Customer Paint, Rims, Tires, Car Audio, Car DVD Video and Computer Systems, and many more crazy additions are transplanted into a Pimped Rides every episode! ... read more at the Pimp My Ride page.
