Overview

The dysfunctional member of the Likwit Crew once again re-emerged to lyrically decapitate fake MCs. Xzibit's verbal asperity and rough, blunted diction is unmistakable. The sophomore jinx is null and void as Xzibit rips line after line over a grab bag of sizzling tracks. Sir Jinx and Xzibit combine production duties on the haunting "Torture Chamber," which incorporates elements of Ice Cube's "When Will They Shoot." The propensity at which Rass Kass, Saafir, and Xzibit drop bombs over "3 Card Molly" is sick, with each flipping an exceptional verse. Another gem is the marvelously crafted, Jesse West-produced "What U See Is What U Get" in which Xzibit touches all bases over a fluctuating piano and synthesizer track. On "Handle Your Business," Xzibit and Defari coalesce to show and prove for Cali over an expansive well-constructed track from DJ Pen One. In addition, Xzibit gives you a survival guide for the City of Angels with "Los Angeles Times." When the Likwit Crew convenes on a cut, the results are usually splendid, and "Let It Rain" is no exemption to that rule. The Liks, King T, and Xzibit drench this E-Swift track, with Tash shining in grand fashion. A newcomer to the Likwit family, Montageone touches down on the flame-broiled "Recycled Assassins." Also, Xzibit brings the heat in ridiculous ways on "Focus" and "Deeper." 40 Dayz and 40 Nightz is sure to whet your appetite with a nonstop accumulation of lyrics and a prolific variety of production.

Xzibit wasn¿t always a West Coast hip-hop household name. Before his popular collaborations with Dr. Dre and the platinum selling Restless LP, Xzibit was a hungry underground LA emcee without a lot of mainstream attention, only vicious lyrics and relentless flow. After making noise with the single ¿Paparazzi¿ from his critically acclaimed debut ¿At The Speed of Life¿, Xzibit dropped what is still considered his best album, ¿40 Dayz and 40 Nights¿. Fueled with a mixture of East Coast wordplay and West Coast themes the album was almost automatically dubbed a Classic. Not that the backing of Los Angeles¿s Likwit Crew with the dark and demanding production from Sir Jinx didn¿t add to the fire power of the albums tracks. The thundering soundscape of ¿Chamber Music¿ demands the listeners attention from the beginning and the Rass Kass and Saafir backed ¿3 Card Molly¿ only certify the lyrical capabilities of the West¿s finest. As Rass puts it ¿If you¿re looking for sympathy then you better look between R and T in the f***in dictionary¿, because no sympathy will come from this record, only 17 tracks of raw west coast hip-hop. The albums acclaimed single ¿What U See is What U Get¿ became an anthem on its own and ¿Los Angeles Times¿ paints a vivid picture of the LA streets. Those of you who didn¿t hear about the black John McClain before shouting out a Restless ¿X¿ at a club need to hit rewind and listen to the Xzibit at his finest moment.
