Exclusive: Why Xzibit Can’t “Getaway” From Fast Cars

Published

on

Xzibit isn’t in the new action flick Getaway,  but that didn’t stop him from signing on to host a special Q&A with the films director, Courtney Solomon, and stunt coordinator Charlie Picerni.

After all, the car enthusiast did host MTV’s vehicle series Pimp My Ride for four years, so it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about cars.

“The person I went with got car sick,” Xzibit told us about the film. ” That should tell you something about it, it’s that intense … I was pretty impressed.”

But don’t expect Xzibit to return to reality TV hosting another car series. X to the Z told us he’ll stick to pimping his own rides while he’s prepping his upcoming album “The Vanguard”.

Check out what else he had to say about the film below.

Getaway, which stars Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Jon Voight, and a tricked-out Shelby Super Snake, is in theaters August 30.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
