Xzibit is a featured fighter in Def Jam series and is a playable character in Def Jam Fight For NY and Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover.
Xzibit was born in Detroit, where at the age of 10 he began to rap. When he was 17, he jumped into his Jeep and headed toward Los Angeles. In 1992, Xzibit met with producer Broadway, through the group Madcap. His first song was "Freestyle Ghetto" on King Tee IV Life, and after that he got on the Liks's "Coast II Coast" and decided to go on tour with them. He points to his mother, who was a writer, as his source of creativity. Xzibit's rhymes resonate because he speaks from the heart as an individual, rather than trying to portray a phony hip-hop persona. He has lived through many dramatic times in his life, so he raps primarily about his own life experiences, and is not afraid to reveal himself. Xzibit eventually worked with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, and helped on Dre's "2001." Through that work he became good friends with Dre, Snoop, Eminem, and others on the Aftermath staff.
