NEW YORK, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Loud/Columbia Records artist Xzibit has been invited on board Eminem's upcoming Anger Management tour beginning July 18 in Buffalo, New York (see itinerary following). Other acts on the Anger Management tour include Ludacris, Papa Roach, and Xzibit's Loud/Columbia labelmates the X-Ecutioners. Xzibit's eagerly-awaited new album, MAN VS. MACHINE is scheduled to hit the racks on Tuesday, September 3.

On MAN VS. MACHINE, Xzibit collaborates with super producers Dr. Dre, Eminem, DJ Premier, and Eric Sermon. Among the album's highlights are riveting performances from multi-platinum special guest artists Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Eminem.

At the end of the 20th century, Xzibit established his reputation as one of the most potent forces in West Coast hip-hop with his albums At the Speed of Life (1996) and 40 Dayz & 40 Nightz (1998). The Dr. Dre-produced Restless (2000) -- featuring guest artists Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Dre himself -- was Xzibit's hip-hop manifesto for the new millennium. Xzibit's riveting performances were among the highlights of 2000's historic Up In Smoke tour, which also featured Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Ice Cube.
