New Interview: Xzibit talks about his latest world tour, the new album ‘Napalm’ due out in 2012, and his visit to Iraq

Xzibit recently sat down with AllHipHop.com to talk about his latest world tour, his new album 'Napalm' due out in 2012, and his visit to Iraq to visit the troops and film a music video in the middle of a live war zone.

Here is an extract from the interview:

AllHipHop.com: Did you get to perform for any of the troops when you were over there (Iraq)?

Xzibit: We performed on one of the bases, actually the only base that had U.S. troops and Iraqi troops on the same base. So we got to perform in front of Iraqi people and U.S. troops, so it was incredible to be able to unite people like that even though it was a very intense setting. It was by no means a regular Hip-Hop show that you’re used to.

AllHipHop.com: Yeah, I can only imagine

Xzibit: There’s choppers out there, like real ones and people looking at each other, and everybody’s on edge ‘cause it’s a warzone. For the hour or whatever that we rocked for them, we, at least, was able to let them have a reprise from that mindstate and have something to actually relax with for just a moment, so it was good to be out there with them. It was a morale boost, and they were very excited for us to be there.

We got a lot of great footage. We got to ask the troops what their perception of home is, what they think about home, and what the first thing they’re going to do when they get home is, and we got such a great array of answers. It’s a wide range of answers that’s going to shock a lot of people, but also make a lot of people laugh, a lot of people cry. And it’s good to just have that much conscience, to have people come together and put this album out, and put this footage out the way it needs to be put out.
