Archive Song: Xzibit – “Don’t Approach Me” ft. Eminem



On this day, exactly 16 years ago, Xzibit released his third solo studio album Restless. The album debuted at number 14 on the Billboard 200 with approximately 204,000 copies sold in its first week released.


The album includes features from Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg and also Eminem on the track “Don’t Approach Me,” produced by Eminem himself.


Mass Appeal writes about the song: “To be fair, Xzibit really brought it on this track, but he was rhyming with one of the best ever— in his prime, Eminem. He never really had a chance. Also, never give Eminem last verse on your song. The fuck are you thinking?”


A low-budget music video was shot, even though it wasn’t released as a single. You can listen and watch the video below:
