Full Circle, released in 2006, is the sixth album from West Coast rapper Xzibit, his first release on Koch Records. To assist in the making of Full Circle, Xzibit enlisted Keith Shocklee of the Bomb Squad as co-executive producer. The Game, DJ Quik, Too Short, T-Pain and Tha Dogg Pound make up the many high-profile guests, and the Chappelle's Show's Donnell Rawlings makes a comedic appearance. The presence of King Tee is particularly notable for being the first Likwit Crew rapper to appear on an Xzibit album since 2000's Restless.

"Concentrate" was released as the lead single. Produced by the Bay Area's Rick Rock, it sampled and looped "Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō," a mantra that is chanted as the central practice of all forms of Nichiren Buddhism.

Full Circle debuted at number 50 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 17,000 copies in the US. Since then It has now sold 122,000 copies in the US and 244,000 copies worldwide. The album had three singles released, in which two of them had music videos filmed for them (for "Concentrate" and "Thank You").
