Method Man, Alkaholiks, Others Help Out Xzibit

In putting together the follow-up to his acclaimed debut album, rapper Xzibit is bringing in some familiar names to help out.

Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man, Tha Alkaholiks, Ras Kass, Saafir, and rap veteran King Tee will be among the guests turning up on "40 Days And 40 Nights," the second effort from Xzibit.

"I'm one of those cats who could listen to Public Enemy and then pop that out and throw an NWA tape in there," Xzibit told the MTV Radio Network recently of his taste for different flavors of hip-hop.

"Whatever was banging, I would listen to it."

The rapper will also get a hand from E-Swift of Tha Alkaholiks, Jesse West of 24/7, and Sir Jinx who produced tracks for Ice Cube's "Death Certificate" and Amerikkka's Most Wanted" albums.

Xzibit's "40 Days And 40 Nights" should arrive in stores this Spring.
