Xzibit‘s been a gangster since his formative years in the Motown streets, and he will continue to be such till the day that he dies. On Forever a G, a freshly-released standout off his soon-to-be-released seventh album, the rap vet shares a few pearls of wisdom gained over the course of his hustle. Backed by the slow-rolling boardwork of ID Labs’ E. Dan, X counsels hip-hop hopefuls to “do you,” rather than trying to conform to the game’s exaggerated ideals, and to keep a constant focus on self-improvement: “The greatest trick the devil put together / was that self-destruction is better than striving for perfection.” Pittsburgh heavyweight Wiz Khalifa (whose sophomore set, O.N.I.F.C, drops in December) contributes a hazy hook. In addition to copping Napalm when it drops tomorrow, October 9, fans should be sure to check out The DJBooth and Rdio‘s Best of Xzibit playlist, running through to the end of the month across the entire site.
