Xzibit is the stage name of Alvin Nathaniel Joiner. The man who was born in Detroit, Michigan, United States on September 18, 1974, is known as a rapper, actor and television host from the United States. He is best known as the host of the MTV PIMP MY RIDE. While the best-selling album is RESTLESS with the single X.
Initially, Xzibit had never planned to become a rapper like now. It was the sadness of the death of his mother who first made the real rapper Alvin Nathaniel Joiner begin to learn to rap. When he was 17 years old, Xzibit had to support himself because he left home.
Xzibit decided to move to Los Angeles where he was sure he would succeed. His first song Freestyle Ghetto when he joined Madcap attracted the attention of a producer named Broadway. Xzibit’s feeling feels different because he talks from his heart and not because he imitates other rappers. Most of the lyrics in Xzibit’s song are the rapper’s personal experience.
Not only being a rapper, Xzibit was also noted to have hosted the MTV program Pimp My Ride and had starred in several films. Xzibit’s acting skills can be seen in XXX movies: STATE OF THE UNION, 8 MILE, or in THE X FILE: I WANT TO BELIEVE.
