Xzibit - Rapper & Pimp My Ride

Posted 25 June 2017 by Justin Russo | |

Xzibit has some harsh words for detractors of Dr. Dre. Speaking to Variety at the premiere of the four-part HBO documentary “The Defiant Ones,” which explores the intersecting lives of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, Xzibit took issue with a recent dig by Chance the Rapper — Chicago’s Chance mocked Dre’s label Aftermath by calling it “Can’t Do Math Entertainment” in a graphic displayed as part of his stage show — who later apologized “to Dr. Dre and all of Aftermath for publicly disrespecting their hard work and contributions to music.”

“These people dissing Dr. Dre, they need to get off their cell phones for about a week and come back to reality,” said Xzibit. “They have no idea. Do what he did and then talk to me.”

Although Xzibit wasn’t signed to Aftermath, he was a not-too-distant peer to many on the roster, achieving success in the 90s which peaked with 1998’s “What U See Is What U Get.”

So what does he miss about the decade during which hip-hop exploded? “The diversity,” said the L.A. native. “I miss the willingness to go your own path and be original. A lot of what we see today is regurgitated. People are literally naming themselves after each other — just changing a couple letters. It’s exacerbating. As a creative, you want to see things elevate, not digress.”

Empire fans can expect to see a lot more of Shyne Johnson in Season 3, as rapper-turned-actor Xzibit will be a series regular.

Fans were introduced to Xzibit’s character, Shyne Johnson, in the back half of Season 2. There are many famous people and artists that have appeared on Empire, so at first we thought that Xzibit’s role would be a brief one. However it’s now been reported that Xzibit will be a series regular in Season 3. Shyne Johnson ain’t going anywhere baby! (Unless Lucious kills him.) Shyne came into the play in the Season 2 finale, when Lucious admits to Cookie that he did a job for gangsters Tommy and Rosie while she was in prison. The only other person who knows about the hit is Shyne, whom Lucious screwed over. With Tariq and the Feds sniffing around, Lucious and Cookie know that they need to cover their bases and get Shyne on their side. This entails giving him an invite to Hakeem’s wedding, but Shyne shows up to the wedding drunk and causes a scene. Now Shyne didn’t strike us as the brightest crayon in the box, but more of Shyne’s identity is set to be revealed in Empire Season 3.

Xzibit is bringing his acting talents to Empire. Mr. X To The Z, born Alvin Joiner, will be appearing on the FOX drama as a rival to Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard).

Deadline reports that:

Xzibit will star as Leslie “Shyne” Johnson aside Terrence Howard’s polarizing character, Lucious. The rapper will embody a music mogul with a close ear to the streets. “Shyne” also has resentment towards Lucious after getting blackballed for his lifestyle. Leslie “Shyne” Johnson is 100% wolf and 100% gangster. He has managed artists, started record imprints and even sold a few units here and there, but his bread and butter always has been — much to his years-long frustration — drugs, guns and extortion. Feeling shut out by the other heavy hitters in the music industry, he carries a big chip on his shoulder, especially for Lucious.

Xzibit – X Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

[Intro: Xzibit]Yeah! Ladies and gentlemanBroadcastin' live to you and yoursIt's Mr. X to the Z, XzibitYeah, bouncin', c'mon

[Verse 1: Xzibit]The first day of the rest of my lifeX stand behind the mic like Walter CronkiteY'all keep the spotlight, I'm keepin' my rhymes tightLose sight of what you believe and call it a nightThis ain't the light-weight, cake mix shit that you're used toTeflon territory you just can't shoot throughYou gon' shoot who? (Who?) Not even on your best dayRollin' the Wild West way, givin' it upLeavin' the whole world stuck not givin' a fuckLaid in the cut, now we break through in the rutHennesey and orange juice baby fill up a cupQuick to grab Mary Jane by the butt and squeezeLoosen up, let your hair down and join the festivitiesOvercrowd the house like lockdown facilitiesBitches be quick to give me brains while the pistol rangeGoin' up and down my dick like the stock exchange

[Hook: Xzibit](X) Rearrange the whole game with my rugged sound(X) Won't even say your own name when I come around(X) Stay on top but remain from the underground(X) to the Z and we all in the family

[Hook: Xzibit](X) Rearrange the whole game with my rugged sound(X) Won't even say your own name when I come around(X) Stay on top but remain from the underground(X) to the Z and we all in the family

[Verse 2: Xzibit]Ever since Xzibit could spit, been on some pimp shitApproach every woman like a potential mistressShine bright, make sure that X stay tightCause tonight I might meet my next ex-wifeMr. Big Chief Reefer, Xzibit use his dick like a VisaI run it through and money come outRunnin' your mouth, I'll have somebody run in your houseBorrow your spouse and have a little fun on the couchNow you know that it was bound to happenI came to give you what you lackin'Whenever you hear them other niggas rappin'Rockin' chains, stadiums, paladiums, cracked craniumsMy whole skeleton is dipped in titaniumDrop-top tinted on twentiesUsin' rappers like crash test dummies, stackin' real estate and moneyIt's funny how things change overnight when you thinkin' rightI beat the odds like Ike beat on his first wife

[Hook: Xzibit](X) Rearrange the whole game with my rugged sound(X) Won't even say your own name when I come around(X) Stay on top but remain from the underground(X) to the Z and we all in the family

[Hook: Xzibit](X) Rearrange the whole game with my rugged sound(X) Won't even say your own name when I come around(X) Stay on top but remain from the underground(X) to the Z and we all in the family

[Verse 3: Xzibit]What an event, we hardcore a hundred percentMakin' it stick, Los Angeles proudly presentsThe real deal, how does it feel? No special effectsYank the chain off of your neck, demand the respectNow all your conversations sound strange to meSeem like everybody around me done changed but meI stand alone on my own two feetStab a track, strangle the beat - Restless, no time for sleepNiggas be weak, I'm concrete like Benjamin GrimmIt's a very thin line between a foe and a friendStraight to the chin (Not these niggas again)Call Doc, bounce to the spot and slide right inI ain't tryin' to see nothing but progress, regardlessHome of the heartless, move right, remain cautiousRepresent nothing but the hustle and struggleHennessy, rock plenty of ice, making a double, and scream

[Hook: Xzibit](X) Rearrange the whole game with my rugged sound(X) Won't even say your own name when I come around(X) Stay on top but remain from the underground(X) to the Z and we all in the family

[Outro: Snoop Dogg]So there you have it - A-B-C, D-P-G-CX to the motherfuckin' ZMr. Xuberant, Xtravagant, Xtrordinary, Xciting, X-a-lottaXO with a little bit of XtacyX-ing your bitch-ass out if you tryin' to test the GAnd what's the recipe?

Alvin Nathaniel Joiner (born September 18, 1974), better known by his stage name Xzibit (pronounced "exhibit"), is an American rapper, actor, television host, radio personality and record producer. He is known as the host of the MTV show Pimp My Ride, which brought him mainstream success. Before hosting the show, he achieved fame in the West Coast hip-hop scene as a rapper, debuting with his acclaimed At the Speed of Life and gathering chart success with his follow-up albums 40 Dayz & 40 Nightz, Restless, Man vs. Machine and Weapons of Mass Destruction, working with high-profile artists such as Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Eminem, Knoc-turn'al, Timbaland, Limp Bizkit, Alice Cooper, Game, 50 Cent and Within Temptation, as well as being one of the first rappers to work internationally, collaborating with overseas acts such as Russian rapper Timati, Raptile from Germany and Bliss N Eso from Australia. Since 2016, Xzibit has starred in Empire as Shyne Johnson, first appearing in the second season and being promoted to the main cast for the third and fourth.

Early life[edit]

Xzibit was born as Alvin Joiner on September 18, 1974 in Detroit, Michigan, and grew up with a single mother. His father left the family early, forcing his mother to raise a young Alvin and his four siblings (an older sister and brother as well as a younger brother and sister) alone. After her death he had to move in with his father. His father remarried and relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Joiner lived in Albuquerque from age 10 to 17, and began writing rhymes. However, he had numerous run-ins with the law and ultimately ended up moving to California to live with his sister. It was there where he first began to rap and pursue a music career. He later reconciled with his father, who can be heard on his second studio album.[1]

1992–1999: Career beginnings, At the Speed of Life and 40 Dayz & 40 Nightz[edit]

Xzibit started to rap at the age of 14, shortly after his relocation from Albuquerque to Los Angeles, then under the pseudonym "Exhibit A".[2] He marked his first appearance on a professional record in February 1995 on The Alkaholiks' Coast II Coast, on the song "Hit and Run" and also appeared on King Tee’s IV Life shortly after, on the track "Free Style Ghetto". After touring with Likwit Crew the same year, Xzibit signed to Loud Records[2] and released his acclaimed debut album, At the Speed of Life in October 1996, which peaked at number 74 on the Billboard Hot 200 and reached 38 on the Canadian Albums Chart. The album produced his first breakthrough single "Paparazzi" which peaked at No. 86 on the Billboard Hot 100 and proved very successful in Germany, where it peaked at number 11 on the German Singles Chart.

After spending the next two years with further building his reputation as a West Coast underground artist and touring with the Likwit Crew, he released his second album, 40 Dayz & 40 Nightz on August 25, 1998 which charted in the U.S. at number 58 and 50 in Canada.[2] Like its predecessor, it was well received by critics and is widely seen as a Classic West Coast Hip-hop record. It spawned four singles, the most successful being "What U See Is What U Get" charting at number 50 in the United States. With his growing following in the West, he caught the eye of rapper and producer Dr. Dre, who secured him high-profile guest spots, such as joining Snoop Dogg on the Dre-produced hit "Bitch Please" of his album No Limit Top Dogg, and appearing on Dr. Dre's 6x platinum album 2001, on the songs "Lolo", "Some L.A. Niggaz", and "What's the Difference" with Eminem. He closed the year 1999 with his acting debut, starring in The Breaks.

2000–2003: Rise to prominence, Restless and Man vs. Machine[edit]

Xzibit started the year with the release of a compilation album Likwit Rhymes, which featured mostly previously unreleased material from his earlier recordings and a guest spot on Bitch Please II, along with Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Nate Dogg. His breakthrough came with his third studio album Restless, with Dr. Dre as executive producer and guest appearances by Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre, DJ Quik and the Alkaholiks, among others, which sold almost 2 million copies and was certified platinum. It spawned three singles, the most successful being "X", which peaked at number 76 in the U.S., 14 in the UK and 4 in Germany.[3] The album climbed to number 12 in America. Dr. Dre invited Xzibit to perform on his American Up in Smoke Tour in mid-2000, which featured Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Ice Cube, among many others. The same year, he also starred in the direct-to-video crime film Tha Eastsidaz by the group of the same name and was a playable character in the video game Madden NFL 2001. He continued to star in films involving fellow rap artists such as The Wash, co-starring Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, in 2001 and The Slim Shady Show and 8 Mile, co-starring Eminem, in 2001 and 2002, respectively. He released two concert films in 2001, Xzibit: Restless Xposed, centered around the recording of his third studio album and various live-performances and was also seen in Tha Alkaholiks: X.O. The Movie Experience by the rap group of the same name. He also released a compilation album of songs that featured him, entitled You Better Believe It.

In 2002, he guest-starred in the comedy series Cedric the Entertainer Presents as Mack Daddy in the eponymous episode and released his fourth studio album Man vs. Machine with mostly similar guest appearances like its predecessor, which spawned three singles, which all failed to chart in the Hot 100, although “Multiply” reached number 39 in the UK and 33 in Germany. The album itself went gold,[4] although Xzibit was unhappy with the crafting and promotion of his newest product, ending the cooperation with Dr. Dre. The album is his highest charting album to date, reaching number 3 in the U.S. and 8 in Canada. He starred in 8 Mile and The Country Bears the same year. He continued to collaborate with his closest West Coast colleagues, primarily Ras Kass and Saafir, with whom he formed The Golden State Project rap collective,[5] and Tha Alkaholiks, along with bigger names like Snoop Dogg and Eminem, whom he accompanied on his All Access Europe tour in 2003.

2003–2007: Pimp My Ride, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Full Circle[edit]

The popular MTV show Pimp My Ride boosted his popularity even further, as it introduced him to a major audience in 2004. The show starred him as the host, who brings an individual's wrecked car to West Coast Customs, where it undergoes a rejuvenation. He continued hosting the show until its cancellation in 2007, those years can easily be seen as the most successful in his career.

Musically, he started the year off with the release of his second compilation album Appetite for Destruction featuring 50 Cent on one track, consisting mostly of tracks from his Dre period and songs that didn't make the cut for his fifth studio album Weapons of Mass Destruction, which was released in December 2004, entering the charts at 43 in the U.S. For this album, he reunited with Columbia Records, after having parted ways with producer and mentor Dr. Dre. The album managed to go gold,[6] but yet again Xzibit was unhappy with the promotion and backing of his label, claiming that they were trying to promote him like Jessica Simpson, leaving the label in anger and going independent. His single "Hey Now (Mean Muggin)" featuring Keri Hilson marked his last chart success on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 93, while the second single "Muthafucka" failed to chart. Aside from his music and Pimp My Ride, he starred in the movie Full Clip, alongside Busta Rhymes, guest-starred in CSI: Miami in the episode The Rap Sheet, released a concert documentary with his new group, eponymously titled Strong Arm Steady and hosted the 2004 MTV Europe Music Awards in Rome. In 2005, he collaborated with shock rock legend Alice Cooper on a track entitled "Stand" from the album Dirty Diamonds. This represented Cooper’s first-ever foray into rap music. This year marks his most busy one, also being featured in three video games, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, where he lent his voice and likeness to the warden Abbott and Def Jam: Fight for NY and NFL Street 2, where he was a playable character.

The following year, he mainly focused on acting, getting roles in the Hollywood blockbusters Derailed opposite Clive Owen and Jennifer Aniston in which he played as Dexter, XXX: State of the Union as Zeke that also starred fellow L.A. rapper Ice Cube and Hoodwinked, where he voiced Chief Ted Grizzly opposite Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close, and Patrick Warburton. In 2006, he starred in the drama Gridiron Gang as Malcolm Moore and made two guest-appearances in the animated sitcom The Boondocks. The year also saw the release of his sixth studio album Full Circle released independently on Koch Records. The album charted at position 50 but was a commercial flop, selling merely 120,000 copies in the U.S.. None of the three singles were able to chart, although "Concentrate" climbed at number 68 in Germany. The album featured Kurupt, T-Pain and The Game, whom he assisted on his album Doctor's Advocate, where he rapped on the track “California Vacation”. He also worked on two video games that year, Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover and Pimp My Ride. The year 2007 saw him hosting the final season of Pimp My Ride only, although he competed in the Gumball 3000 2007 rally, where he lost his driver’s license, due to a speed limit violation.

2008–present: Musical hiatus, focus on acting and Napalm[edit]

After the cancellation of Pimp My Ride in 2007, 2008 was the first year where Xzibit did not release an album in his former two-year cycle. Though starring in two movies The X-Files: I Want to Believe as Mosley Drummy and American Violet as Darrell Hughes, this year marked a significant financial downstep for him, earning merely $70,000, opposed by almost $500,000 one year prior.[7] He was also featured on The Alkaholiks Tha Alkaholiks: Live from Rehab concert film that year. In 2009, he played the mob leader Big Fate in the acclaimed The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans and reprised his role as Abbott in the enhanced remake of 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, while Sony released his first greatest hits album, entitled The Greatest Hits. Even though his financial troubles were increased even further, as he had to file for bankruptcy in July 2009 and January 2010, although both attempts were dismissed and his houses and belongings liened.

In 2010 he had a guest-spot in the crime series Detroit 1-8-7, in the episode Royal Bubbles / Needle Drop. He also had the role of the Jabberwock in Malice n Wonderland, a short film based on the novel Alice in Wonderland, included on the re-release of the eponymous Snoop Dogg album, entitled More Malice. After having guest-starred three times in the previous season, he was added to the permanent cast of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, where he is a part of the design team. After a four-year hiatus, he planned to release his seventh studio album MMX in 2010, but due to label issues the album was not released by the end of year. In March 2011, he teamed up with Extreme Music, to release a new compilation of material titled Urban Ammo 2. Xzibit produced, composed and performed all 40 tracks on the compilation album, created primarily for professional music users and music supervisors in need of material for their movie/television productions. Xzibit enlisted veteran director Matt Alonzo to shoot the videos for the two singles, which are titled “Man on the Moon” and “What It Is”, both featuring Young De. In April 2011 he teamed up with Fredwreck and Adil Omar for a song on The Mushroom Cloud Effect.[8] He also appeared in the TV movie Weekends at Bellevue as a nurse in late 2011, an unsuccessful pilot that was not picked up in the end.

On October 19, 2011 it was announced that the title of the album has been changed to Napalm.[9] On October 9, 2012, Napalm was released and Xzibit made an appearance on the BET Cypher in the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards. On October 29, 2012, Xzibit announced the Collateral Damage tour with the first 16 shows in Canada starting in early November.[10] The tour eventually grew to 18 shows and Xzibit announced this was the first leg on a global tour that would continue into 2013.[11] He starred in the TV movie Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden as a Navy SEAL, depicting the death of Osama bin Laden. He also appeared in 3 episodes of Hawaii Five-0 as Jason "JC" Dekker starting in 2013. On November 8, 2013, Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation revealed the title, artwork and track listing of their upcoming sixth studio album, Hydra. Xzibit features as a guest vocalist on the third track entitled "And We Run". In October 2013 Xzibit released an album with the hip hop group Serial Killers alongside Demrick and B-Real. Xzibit recently appeared on Dr. Dre's studio album Compton, on the song "Loose Cannons" alongside Cold 187um and Sly Pyper.

During his UK tour, Xzibit spoke with Hip-Hop Kings[12] regarding his upcoming work. He confirmed a brand new album to be released in 2016 with Dr. Dre as a featured producer. Furthermore, Xzibit told the crowd in Manchester that he would be returning next year for the Compton Tour. Xzibit confirmed that Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar were confirmed artists who would be on the Compton Tour.

On February 25, 2016, it was announced that he would be joining the cast of Empire, playing the character of Shyne.[13]

Controversy[edit]

Rove McManus[edit]

In June 2007, Xzibit left the Rove Live studios in Australia before a scheduled appearance. Media outlets reported that it was due to Xzibit not being given stand-alone billing on the program, even though he had not even been booked in advance. According to Xzibit, he walked off the set after taking offense to comments made by a Rove staffer, who after informing Xzibit that his performance time would be shorter than the rapper might have liked, allegedly said: “You know, we came a long way just having you on the program.” Xzibit took this as a racist remark, although the staffer claimed that they were merely referring to his status as a late booking.[14]

Gumball 3000[edit]

In the Gumball 3000 2007 rally, Xzibit drove a black Lamborghini Gallardo. During the first day of the rally, Dutch police seized his driver's license for doing 160 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. After the penalty, his co-driver, producer Fredwreck Nassar took over the wheel and they were allowed to continue.[15] In an interview with Dutch radio personality Reinout "Q-Bah" van Gendt,[16] Xzibit says that he mistook the kilometers for miles (100 mph = 160 km/h). Ultimately, he never got his license back from the Dutch police and had to apply for a new one in the United States. Xzibit competed again in both the 2013 and 2014 Gumball 3000.[17]

Tax evasion[edit]

According to public records, as of late 2010 Xzibit owed more than $9 million in delinquent federal taxes.

He tried to file for bankruptcy twice, in July 2009 and January 2010, but his bankruptcy filings were dismissed. The problems started after Pimp My Ride was cancelled: in 2007 he earned $497,175; after the cancellation his 2008 income was reported as $67,510.[7][dead link][18]
