XzibitDraw Your 'Weapons'
Rapper Xzibit returns this week with his first album since 2002, "Weapons of Mass Destruction" (Columbia). The 16-track set features guest appearances from Busta Rhymes on "Tough Guy," Strong Arm Steady on "Beware of Us" and "Crazy Ho," Keri Hilson on the single "Hey Now (Mean Muggin')" and production from Timbaland, Battlecat, Hi-Tek and DJ Muggs, among others.
The new album will be available in a collector's edition with a bonus DVD, featuring interviews and behind-the-scenes footage in the studio. Also included is a reel of "funniest moments" from the Xzibit-hosted MTV show "Pimp My Ride" and the "Hey Now" video.
"Weapons of Mass Destruction" is the follow-up to 2002's "Man vs. Machine," which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums tally and No. 3 on The Billboard 200. The set has sold 593,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Away from the mic, Xzibit will co-star alongside fellow rapper Ice Cube in the upcoming film "XXX: State of the Union," which hits U.S. theaters next April. He is also due to appear in the Jennifer Aniston-starring "Derailed," which will feature Wu-Tang Clan mastermind RZA.
