Rapper Xzibit Sued For Allegedly Advertising Pesticide-Tainted Brass Knuckles Brand

The suit alleges pesticides Bifenazate, Etoxazole, Myclobutanil and Trifloxystrobin were found

Hip hop star Xzibit is taking a hit for alleged pesticide contamination in his cannabis vaping products. A Los Angeles man filed a proposed class action suit Thursday claiming the rapper’s Brass Knuckles line of THC oil concentrates seriously strained his health and failed to deliver on a promise of superior potency.

Plaintiff Ignacio Lee alleges he began using Brass Knuckles vaping cartridges in July 2016 and consistently repurchased the “Candy Apple” and “Sour Diesel” varieties because he saw Xzibit, 44, pushing the products on his Instagram page.

“In approximately January 2017, Mr. Lee began experiencing symptoms of fatigue, headaches and nausea but dismissed his symptoms as general fatigue,” the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court and obtained by the Daily News states.  “Mr. Lee’s symptoms progressed to chest pain, shortness of breath, wheezing at night and difficulty breathing,” the paperwork claims. “Mr. Lee stopped use of the products altogether in approximately August 2017 and his symptoms abated.”


In September 2017, Lee conducted an “independent lab test” on the Candy Apple line at Steep Hill Labs and received a report that claimed the product had “detectable amounts of pesticides including Bifenazate, Etoxazole, Myclobutanil and Trifloxystrobin,” the 22-page complaint states.
