 Xzibit : Restless (2000): Reviews
With Xzibit coming with nothing but raw and uncensored lyrics, Restless is not for those with tender ears.
For all his flexibility, Xzibit's Restless is more skewed to the cars and clubs than the basement, due in no small part to Dr. Dre's influence as the album's executive producer.
What's so impressive about Xzibit is his rhyme flow, which is one of the smoothest in rap and provides a wonderful contrast to his profanity-led ghetto dwelling lyrics.

Xzibit may be a first-rate hardcore rapper and may have some first-rate beats here, but his songwriting can often be iffy.

 Xzibit : Restless - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Dre and his Aftermath regime attached very lofty expectations to Restless; X was publicly anointed as the next MC expected to blow up.
Surely, with Dre as executive producer and guest shots from Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Dre himself, Xzibit was virtually assured of acquiring the mainstream success that eluded him on previous efforts (At the Speed of Life and 40 Dayz & 40 Nightz).
On "X," Xzibit pledges to "Rearrange the game with my rugged sound," and he periodically delivers on that promise.

 Xzibit Discography at CD Universe
Xzibit is one of the most respected rappers in the West Coast underground.
The Detroit-born/L.A.-based MC created a nice buzz with his 1996 debut, AT THE SPEED OF LIFE, which displayed Xzibit's fierce, technically dazzling flow, and a creative emphasis on skills rather than on gangsta bombast and commercial aspirations.
A string of lauded guest appearances and a collaboration with Dr. Dre in 2000 moved Xzibit into the mainstream, but it was the success of his highly-entertaining MTV car-detailing show, PIMP MY RIDE, which premiered in 2004, that ultimately made Xzibit a household name.

Now back with his fifth album, Weapons Of Mass Destruction (Sony), Xzibit is out to prove that he has not forgotten where he has come from and that he remains one of the West's premier emcees.
Coming off of a sub par album is never easy, especially for Xzibit, as his 2002 release, Man Vs. Machine, was labeled by critics and fans alike as his weakest album.
While most of the album finds Xzibit flying solo, when he does stop to gather some help is when the album tends to falter.
