Rapper Xzibit says he’s sick and tired of trying to defend the lyrics and imagery associated with his music genre.

"Rap is a reflection of society. If society wasn't violent, then hip-hop wouldn't be violent,” he says. "You can blame hip hop but we're like reporters; we tell you what's going on in the neighborhood and we tell you how it is. I don't think hip-hop should glorify the violence. I think with hip-hop music you have to have some kind of balance. …But we can't be like Arnold Schwarzenegger; he can kill 70 million people on the screen and still he's a role model. But when you talk about slapping somebody, or shooting somebody on a rap tape, you are a criminal."
