Xzibit Net Worth
Xzibit Net Worth: Xzibit is an American rapper, actor and television host who has a net worth of $3 million. If you're thinking Xzibit's net worth should be higher, keep in mind that the rapper has had some financial problems over the years. He moved to file for bankruptcy twice, once in 2009 and again in 2010. At one point he owed the IRS nearly $1 million in back taxes. He has since recovered somewhat.
Xzibit was born Alvin Nathaniel Joiner on September 1974 in Detroit, Michigan. At the age of ten, he began to rap to help him cope with with the loss of his mother. At the age of 14, he got into trouble and was removed from his home when his father refused to allow him to continue living there. Xzibit was released from the state on his own recognizance as an adult at 17. He pulled some money together and jumped into his jeep and headed toward Los Angeles, California. He cites his mother, who was a writer, as his source of creativity. Xzibit achieved fame on the West Coast hip-hop scene. He debuted with his acclaimed album "At the Speed of Life". He then achieved chart success with his follow-up albums "Restless", "Man vs. Machine" and "Weapons of Mass Destruction". During his career, Xzibit has worked with high-profile artists such as Eminem, Cypress Hill, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Knoc-turn'al, Timbaland, Limp Bizkit, Alice Cooper, Game, 50 Cent and Within Temptation. On the international stage, he has worked with such overseas acts as Russian rapper Timati, Raptile from Germany, Bliss N Eso from Australia and Adil Omar from Pakistan. Xzibit's rhymes resonate with his audience because he speaks from the heart as an individual, rather than a hip-hop persona.
Between 2004 and 2007 Xzibit hosted the MTV show "Pimp My Ride". The show brought him international mainstream fame. Ironically, the show actually cost Xzibit money as he was unable to tour when the show was in production and his salary per episode was not significant. On the other hand, the show made Xzibit a household name who is still relevant to this day.
