Man Vs Machine (2xCD, Album). Epic, Epic, Loud Records. 504753 9, EPC 504753 9, 5047539000. I have to admit I slept on this CD when it first came out. In hindsight, it's a pretty dope album with some hot key tracks: Symphony In X Major (Featuring Dr. Dre) - Really creative! Multiply (Featuring Nate Dogg) - This was the 1st single (very catchy hook). My Name (Featuring Eminem & Nate Dogg) - best song on the album (IMO). Overall, this is a pretty solid west coast album. I recommend the album, or at least digital purchase of the tracks listed above.
His follow-up album Man vs. Machine (2002) also enjoyed similar commercial success; it debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200, and was certified gold, while Weapons of Mass Destruction (2004) also became certified gold. After the release of Full Circle in 2006, Xzibit underwent a musical hiatus, not releasing any music until the release of his seventh studio album Napalm on October 9, 2012. However, shortly after the release of the album, Xzibit entered another period of hiatus, and has not released any further music to date. Xzibit started the year with the release of a compilation album Likwit Rhymes, which featured mostly previously unreleased material from his earlier recordings and a guest spot on Bitch Please II, along with Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Nate Dogg.

While Man vs. Machine is supposed to have a ghetto and sort of gangster rap vibe Xzibit turns it into to a complete mess of upbeat rhythms and beats while his rapping indicates that he is a hardcore gangster. It’s also hard to believe that the man rapping it up is the same joyful goofball that hosts Pimp my Ride. There are sixteen songs featured on Man vs. Machine and I have yet to find one that is tightly composed or well structured. I’ll describe some songs off of the album, but keep in mind that Xzibit recycles beats like old soda cans. The first song that stood out was the second track, titled Symphony in X Major. It’s just a heavy beat and Alvin rappin’ it up, he also throws in some dinky electronic effects giving the song an opera and more professional feel. The most interesting part would be the chorus when some of his lady friends imitate opera singing and I suppose this is why the song is supposedly a symphony.
