AllHipHop.com: What's up with you and Rhyme Night?
X: The rhyme night is something that we doing
out here to give some light to the artist out here that really don't get any.
The underground scene gets pushed around to that certain extent to clubs. I
don't really go out but for the simple fact that there's no unity out here.
When I say unity, for instance, like that club that I used as a platform to
come out and broadcast. This is the club that used to bring out crews from the
East coast and then bring them out to the West and let them shine when nobody
was bringing Wu-Tang out here and nobody was bringing the underground cats to
let them see the West coast underground. It's kind of like we got to keep fueling
that. I throw some thing called Rhyme Night and once a month cats come through
and pack the house. We let them do like one or two songs and we got a main act
that comes out and smashes it. Whether it be a n*gga that's from in town or
we bring somebody from out of town. The next one we gonna do we just gonna blow
it out and keep it going. We just gonna make it bigger and bigger and bigger.
AllHipHop.com: A lot of people want to know what
was the situation with the incident with Mexicans with you getting cut?
X: I and I am gonna say it one time and everybody
hear it. It was some coward sh*t. It was two motherf*ckers and nothing got punched
, nothing got kicked, nobody got hit, nothing . A motherf*cker threw a bottle
at my face and that was it. They were three feet away from me and threw a bottle.
A n*gga aint gonna go out like that. All I'm saying is I'm glad I aint have
my pistol in my pocket. That's all I got to say.
AllHipHop.com: Last time I talked to you, your
relationship was some what strange with Snoop. Do you still have a mutual relationship
with him anymore?
X: It is what it is. I aint got nothing negative
to say about Snoop Dogg. That brother dealing with his own trials and tribulations.
A n*gga like me is trying to push this West coast sh*t and keep Xzibit cracking.
AllHipHop.com: There's a lot of West coast dudes
claiming the new west . Why do people feel the need to say that in that way?
X: I put it like this. If you happy with the
way the West coast has been perceived and heard right now, then something is
wrong. That aint where it's at. We got so much sh*t out here and it feels like
the rest of the world is bent on only supporting one side of this sh*t. It's
stereotyped out to the fact that if you don't come a certain way or your not
associated with a certain name then motherf*ckers aint gonna listen to you or
they think that if its not behind a f*ck track or we aint talking like ( funny
noises) then n*ggas don't feel like its West coast, which is bullsh*t. We got
a lot to say and a lot to be heard and I don't mind being an underdog. Being
an underdog or being underestimated has been some of the best things that have
happened to me in my career because just when you think I aint I swing and knock
that motherf*cker off the fence and take motherf*cker off guard and sh*t. I
always come out looking victorious because just when you think I can't, I can
AllHipHop.com: Is it getting too real? I saw
yall with some heavy gunplay in the video too. I know it was all in the shooting
range type of situation, but is it getting too serious out there?
X: It's always been serious out here. That's
why that all star sh*t, that sh*t aint go down out here. Them motherf*ckers
wasn't playing out here. N*ggas came out here (for All-Star) with all they jewels and all that
sh*t and got laid down player. Don't even think about it. N*ggas aint have no
videos cracking, n*ggas aint have no super rap crews rolling through here. N*ggas
out here is hungry.
AllHipHop.com: All that sh*t about cats getting
robbed is true?
Yea , Don't let motherf*ckers come home with
all that sh*t . That sh*t went down playboy.
AllHipHop.com: Cats came here (NY) and came home and
was like that sh*t didn't happen.
X: Yea, Ok. Don't let n*ggas start taking pictures
with their jewels and sh*t and start putting them up on the Internet. N*gga
you don't want that. Just go on and take that L and keep it moving. It aint
nothing to laugh about because I would hate for n*ggas to try that sh*t anywhere
else. Its just bad business all away around. All I'm saying with that is that
its motherf*cker out here too that need to be heard and need to be exonerated
just like everybody else and that just comes with putting out good music. F*ck
all the bullsh*t aside, We gotta come out with the good music and just really
rock the world like we did before because it seem like it starts here. Everything
moves in different cycles and if you look at the music at how its changed and
evolved , It was kind of like everybody was trying to be from the West at one
point. Then it moved to the South , now everybody tying to rep from the South.
It moves in cycles. Everybody wanted to be Jay-Z at one time. I think its just
time to turn it on.
AllHipHop.com: Will Strong Arm Steady come out
under your imprint Open Bar? Is that through Columbia?
X: Yea , We gonna work it out like that. It's
gotta come in order for it to make sense.
AllHipHop.com: What's up with Dafari? I know
he had a lot of stuff to say about you. Have yall mended those things?
X: Man , Defari been in my house several times.
N*ggas is brothers. The best way I can sum it up even with Snoop Dogg, is at
the end of the day even when brothers fight, thrown down, lump each other up
, we still brothers and that's always gonna work out and that's how I feel about
both them cats.
Strong Arm Steady the gang/Deep like the Wu-Tang/Crazy,
swing like an Orangutan/Yall motherf*ckers cannot hang/Lets Go!
