X in Mourning

Lyricist, reality show host and actor Xzibit has been on my mind lately. The rapper recently blogged about the death of his son, who was born prematurely and has begun to talk about his grieving. It's a rare moment of vulnerability in the hip hop world, that reminds us that behind the stone-faced superthug image rappers project is a human being that is as vulnerable to the uncertainties of life as we all are.

The clip above shows Xzibit, The Liks and Defari onstage at Virginia Commonwealth University's Franklin Street Gym, a few years back.
