I guess Kanye West isn't the only male hip-hop artist who is not a raging homophobe. In my interview with Xzibit he talks about the Diddy drama and goes into more detail about homophobia in hip-hop. Click here to check it out.
More importantly, Xzibit is in the new film American Violet. It's the first must-see black film of 2009. Based on a true story, American Violet is the story of one woman's battle against a corrupt legal system. The movie is in theatres Friday, April 17th and I hope everyone goes out to support it. The movies inlcudes the legendary Alfre Woodard (great to see her in a hood role! lol), Charles Dutton, Anthony Mackie and an amazing performance from Julliard graduate Nicole Behaire - this girl is the next Angela Bassett.
