Overview

Xzibit's debut album, At the Speed of Life, is an excellent mixture of hardcore showcases for his lyrical virtuosity and ruminative, reflective hip-hop ballads. Though his rhyming skills are impeccable, the production from tha Alkoholiks' E-Swift, Muggs, and Diamond D gives the album the musical weight it needs to keep it interesting throughout the album.

This is the album where you can hear the "hungry" Xzibit from back in the day -- a true, truly talented MC with amazing skillz and fire backing him on every track. Xzibit established on this album a gritty, dirty raw sound that has never been duplicated, and his lyrics boast intricacy on par with the East Coast's best wordsmiths. Mr. X to the Z has come a long way in terms of mainstream success, but since coming out with Restless after dropping two classic albums, the quality of his work has been leagues reached the pinnacle of skill he established on this album. COP THIS ALBUM. IT IS AMAZING. You are not an Xzibit fan if you haven't heard his first two albums--and you owe it to yourself to check them out if you haven't.
