If i remember right, it didn't really get that much play on MTV back when it came out.

Yeah this whole album always frustrated me.  It was so close to being another classic for Xzibit wasn’t a fully realized project.  It’s like everyone involved with it didn’t see it all the way through.  How the fuck is Dre supposedly the executive producer of the album and can’t even show up for the video?  Why was the stellar Premier track on some unnecessary bonus disc? 

The album itself is stellar 2/3’s of the way through with bangers feat. All-Star cast of Dre, Eminem, Nate Dogg, Snoop.  Then the last 3rd of the album is dog shit and damn near unlistenable.  Some of it almost sounded overproduced like the Bink and Rick Rock tracks there is way too much going on. 

It’s a damn shame—it’s like Xzibit fell off during the making of the album just before it’s completion and he didn’t really come back until Napalm.

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Agreed.  All those tracks are unlistenable with the exception of “Heartz of Man” from the first half of the album—of course it was heavily aided by the sample.

“Release Date” was a cold ass cut
The Em feat was a banger
Dre feat was a banger. 
Snoop joint was dope
Ras joint was okay

they should’ve gone the Illmatic or G Funk era route and kept it to a tidy 10 cutsAs I said there was some quality cuts they just didn’t see it all the way through

Did the Erick Sermon remix of "Multiply" ever leak? I know it was released on Vinyl, but i still haven't heard it. I got the Just Blaze one though.

true. But this "Symphony" song is also very bad. Singers singing the chorus are hardly in tune and the beat Rick Rock laced is too fancy.

Eric Sermon did a dope beat for the remix, but it doesn't match the pace of the track at all, imo. It's just an alright remix overall

Yep.  “Symphony” was a unique track like Opera meets HipHop.  For about 4 years I had the beat as the ringtone to my phone It was like some gangsta symphony opera next level shit.  A little like Coolio’s “When You Get There” meeting with classical music. 

If Dre could’ve shown up for the damn video of the album he supposedly executive produced then maybe it could’ve took off but I remember  it was an early leak to the album that all of us at dubcc were raving about at the time.

Rockwilder remixed it too? I had no idea. Anybody got the song or the Erick Sermon remix? I wanna hear 'em both. Here's the one Just Blaze did.

Thanks for that link to the Erick Sermon remix. Yeah, it does sound all over the place. Not really feelin' it.
