Xzibit Explains How Son Tre Landed On Track ‘Throw It Like It’s Free’ On Soon To Be Released ‘Napalm’ Album

Xzibit sat down with BallerStatus.com to explain how his son Tre (artist name Tre Capital) landed on the track 'Throw It Like It's Free' on the upcoming album 'Napalm' album:

 

"It was his first time in the studio with me and my team. I was like, 'Yo, I need a third verse on this track I did with Black Milk and Fats…' I was just looking. I called Danny Brown, he said he was gonna get down — it was just a time constraint thing with him. So, I was like, 'Man, what's up?' I looked at Tremaine and said (jokingly), 'Do you got something for this?' He was like, 'Yea!'" X explained. "The room was packed with all of my n****s, so me being the asshole that I am, I'm like 'Yea, let's see what you got.'T his is the pit, I take this seriously…

"He did it on his first take," he continued, before adding that, although he's talented on the mic, they've both agreed that he must complete one task before trying his hand at hip-hop. "The first thing before Tre Capital hits the site and does all this sh** (laughs), he has to pay me a diploma. That's our deal."

Xzibit made it very clear that his son makes him proud. Still, no matter how much of an inside track he may have with a rap vet as his father, he makes sure he works hard for everything he receives. "I'm very proud of who he's becoming, and the young man he is," said the rapper. "He's got to work for it though, because nothing is easy. Nothing good comes easy."

Tre Capital appears on the deluxe version of Naplam, on the cut "Throw It Like It's Free" alongside Black Milk and Phats.

Naplam is due out October 9th, via X's own Open Bar Entertainment through EMI. Keep it locked on www.xzibitcentral.com for all the Xzibit Napalm exclusives!

Meanwhile AllHipHop.com sat with Xzibit during the listening party and wrote the article about the album:

"…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. .."
