"…AllHipHop.com sat with Xzibit yesterday (September 14) in his studio in Los Angeles, to get an exclusive listen to his new project Napalm.
The album is Inspired by trips to United States bases in Iraq.
Xzibit gives fans 18-tracks that convey the raw emotion of the war that United States troops endure on a daily basis, while living in a combat zone.
The project also pulls together a host of features that X acquired over the course of a year and a half of recording.
While at the listening session Xzibit told stories of how the threat of violence was real when he was visiting Iraq.
From the threat of getting sniped in a helicopter, to dodging RPGs, the rapper saw what it was like to be in a real war zone, while touring nine bases in five different cities throughout Iraq. .."
