Xzibit recently responded to a story The Game told about the West Coast Peace Treaty that took place in 2005. The event was held to bring rappers on the West Coast together. 

Xzibit gave a speech at one point, and in the middle of it someone yelled "N*gga, you from Albuquerque."

"I didn't know. I thought Xzibit was from L.A. It's like finding out Santa Clause didn't make these cookies," The Game told HipHopDX.

"Here's the thing, I'm not from New Mexico, I was born in Detroit," Xzibit explained. "I lived in New Mexico, but I was only there for seven years, and then I came here at 17 and then lived the rest of my life here. That being said, it's very interesting the sh*t that people hold onto. You can easily pick up a phone and Google my name and see that I'm not from f*cking New Mexico. I love New Mexico. I loved Albuquerque, I got a lotta friends there, but I'm not from f*cking New Mexico."

The "Paparazzi" creator then mentioned other rappers who've been associated with Los Angeles but come from someplace else.

"Kurupt is from Philly, Nate Dogg is from Mississippi, Tupac is from New York," he explained. "Get the f*ck outta here. It doesn't f*cking matter. If you're gonna throw the stone, n*gga, throw the stone at everybody... And even if I was from Albuquerque, you let an Albuquerque n*gga come here and take all of Los Angeles. Holla at me."

Do you think a rapper has to be born and raised in a city in order to claim it?
