Xzibit remembers

West coast hip hop veteran had numerous collaborations with the first tier stars, forming relationships that last through his longlasting career. Some of them were in the focus of his recent interview.

Talking to HotNewHipHop over the phone Xzibit discussed his new album with Serial Killers and the experience of working with Dr. Dre.

Xzibit: Well, Dr. Dre is the chairman of the board– let’s get that straight, off-top. And Dr. Dre brings the table to the table. [laughs]
That’s what he brings to the table. He lives in the studio, first of all. So, you know, with his level of expectation of himself and his music, I don’t think people really understand and grasp how strong that process is. I can’t speak on his timetable, you know what I’m saying? I think that every time he’s come out with something, it’s made an impact and changed the direction of music, so I have no questions about his timing, you know what I’m saying? Yeah, when you see me in the studio with Dre, we working on stuff for myself, we working on stuff for him, we working on stuff for everything. But as far as when he releases, that’s up to him. But he never disappoints, so I just let people talk until they actually get it, and then when they get it, it’s a piping hot cup of ‘Shut the fuck up.’ [laughs]

HNHH: …What are the chances – and this is just coming from a fan here–but what are the chances that we can ever see a “Bitch Please III?”

Xzibit: Wooh! That’s a Dr. Dre question. [laughs]

HNHH: But you’re a key part of all of them, though, just as much as him! So maybe if you slide up that request, hit up Dre, maybe put the request in…I think a lot of people right now, if people saw a collaboration between you, Dre, Eminem, and Snoop right now, I really do think it would break the internet, to be honest. I really do think that.

Xzibit: Wow, that’s dope, man, thank you. I’ll see if I can talk to Dre about it, but we’ll see. [Laughs]

HNHH: On that note, I know you and Dre are super tight, but do you still at all keep in touch with Eminem? I know you guys have worked together so many times, and let’s be honest, you have a great track record of collaborations, like “Don’t Approach Me…” and “My Name.”

Xzibit: I haven’t talked to Marshall in a minute, man, but you know, it’s always the same – I got a lot of respect for him and his team. When we see each other, it’s all love.
