Xzibit spoke with ‘CD USA’ about his new independently released album, ‘Full Circle’ in a brief Q&A. “Actually the independent route came after my tryin’ to exhaust all of my other resources,” the rapper explained. “I really didn’t understand the bulk of work that had to go along with being independent but it’s more gratifying for me. I think that what I tried to do with the album was basically put the raw music in emotion that I always put into my records, without the red tape, without the filter of the major label wantin’ to protect their image or keep it within a certain taste level. (laughs) So I get to say what I wanna say, say it how I wanna say it, so it feels good. You know?” cdusa.com has since shut down.
