Xzibit and Diddy are the latest victims of sensational and irresponsible "journalism". Apparently a statement made by Xzibit in an interview was taken out of context and ran with. Mr. X to the Z responded to the misrepresentation by way of his Myspace blog.

MR X to tha Z says: I HAVE NO BEEF WITH DIDDY!!!!!
Wow, so I wake up this morning and my phone is going nuts. I turn on the computer and find all this shit about me "throwing puffy under the gay bus" whatever that means. All this SPIN that you journalist are putting on the statements I made on a radio show to DIRECTLY effect a guy in a manor not intended is wrong. I got a call yesterday (which caught me off guard) from Diddy himself stating the club was an after hours spot called "space" I believe. The rumor mill that has ground this bullshit out to be the shit storm that it is, is doing so on its own accord. Like I said at the top, I have no beef with Diddy. BUT WAIT… a bigger problem I see is the negative stance these hip hop sites and blog sites are taking when speaking of gay people in general. All I can say to that is :PEOPLE GROW UP! I do NOT like to spread hate and make it a point not to do so, so this is not the way I intended this interview to unfold. You heard it directly from me ladies and gents, Im looking forward to the issues at hand that really mean something to both my fans and Diddys as well: ART & MUSIC.
