In addition to giving back via the Extreme Makeover Home Edition design team, rapper Xzibit, who formerly hosted MTV’s ‘Pimp My Ride’, continues to pursue his own musical career. Xzibit is scheduled to perform live at Club One in St. John’s Newfoundland, Canada on November 10, and has announced that a swag war will be held to determine his opening act.
Swag War II (Swag War I was held last December) will be held on November 5, and will see hopeful rappers perform pre-written raps over their choice of beats in an ’8 Mile’ style hip-hop rhyming contest. The winner will open for Xzibit and will also receive three hundred dollars cash, two VIP passes to the concert, and a six-month membership to CrateConnect – an online digital record site.
According to the Telegram, organizers say no experience is necessary to take part in the swag war, adding that sixteen contestants will be chosen to go two rounds of competition.Â There will be local judges, but Xzibit will not be among them.
The Xzibit concert is being produced by SureFire Entertainment, and tickets are $29.75 in advance and $40.00 at the door.Â Xzibit is currently touring in Western Canada, and will perform live shows in Quebec, Ottawa, and Barrie Ontario following the concert in Newfoundland.
Xzibit recently appeared on an episode of ‘Detroit 1-8-7′, and has a role in the upcoming film ‘Fencewalker’.
