Legendary West Coast spitter Xzibit — aka Mr. X to tha Z — chopped it up with “TMZ Hip Hop,” dropping a plethora of updates … including a few methods behind Dr. Dre’s music-releasing madness.
Dr. Dre has been teasing new music on Instagram these past few months, posting up with several icons — like Flavor Flav, Grandmaster Flash and Diamond D — but hasn’t announced an album … which may or may not be called “Detox.”
According to Xzibit, Dr. Dre‘s superpower lies in timing, and he has the intuition to know when to push the release button … no matter how much fans clamor for new tracks.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
As far as his business affairs go, X has been one of Hip Hop’s leading cannabis entrepreneurs for years — getting his feet wet with the Brass Knuckles brand, and booming again with his Napalm strains.
That’s come with some controversy … his Napalm brand got looped into the Stop Asian Hate movement (due to the infamous Vietnam War weapon), but X to the Z says that’s all water under the bridge, and explained how he made good with the community.
He could make lots of new friends at the next Comic-Con, based on a few priceless Marvel collectibles he showed us. Trust us, Xzibit is all about “Wakanda forever” … for real!!!
