FAMOUS QUOTES BY XZIBIT
“Well, because everybody was calling themselves MC This and MC That. Everybody had an MC before their name and it was also like Ice Cube and Ice-T. I wanted something totally different and original so I used a battle where I was real loud and animated and motherfuckers would tell me you should be Xzibit because it’s like you on display. So I started calling myself Xzibit.”
“The acting is something that I have to work at, something that I have to rehearse, something that I have to practice but the music comes naturally to me. So I would say that the music is the catalyst that makes everything else work and that’s pretty much just very clear and straightforward for me.”
“It was just a timing thing you know certain rappers had conflicts at the time you know and it came down to everybody being able to come to the table and had to be in a timely manner because that’s what the label wanted but those are my niggas and I wish it would happen and I’ll never say never.”
“Actually, I met some producers first. There was Broadway – James Broadway – and Madcap was another group that they were producing at the time. And through them I met King T, and through King T I met the Alkoholiks. And that’s when I got inducted into the Alkoholiks Hall of Fame.”
