$500 Thousand

What is Xzibit’s Net Worth?

American rapper, actor, and TV host Xzibit has a net worth of $500,000 dollars. Xzibit first became famous as a hip-hop musician on the West Coast. Later, he became known as the host of MTV’s “Pimp My Ride.” If you think Xzibit’s net worth should be higher, remember that the rapper has had some money problems over the years. He has filed for bankruptcy twice, the first time in 2009 and the second time in 2010. At one point, he owed back taxes to the IRS of almost $1 million. He has since gotten better, but we’ll talk more about Xzibit’s finances in a moment.

Financial and Tax Problems

In 2010, it came out that Xzibit owed $900,000 in back taxes to the federal government. Xzibit first filed for bankruptcy in July 2009, and he did it again in January 2010. Both of the cases were thrown out. According to the paperwork he filed in 2010, the rapper had $793,433 in assets but owed $1.4 million. In the filing, Xzibit said that the cancellation of “Pimp My Ride” in 2007 was to blame for his money problems. He made just under $500,000 from MTV while the show was on. After the show was canceled, he only made $67,510 in the next year. The filing also showed that Xzibit did not own a car at the time the show was on the air. He was paying $2,230 per month to rent a 2006 Range Rover.

In July 2022, Xzibit filed a response to his ex-wife Krista’s request for spousal support. In it, he said that he was no longer the main breadwinner because COVID canceled live shows and took away most of his income. His claim is that Xzibit hasn’t done anything important since 2019. He also says that Krista makes $175,000 a year and lives in the house they used to share. He also says that they agreed at one point to sell the mansion, which he thought could be worth as much as $3 million in the hot housing market of 2021, but Krista was slow to act and let a new boyfriend move in with his kids. By the time he filed the claim in the middle of 2022, Krista had already agreed to move out, but Xzibit was worried that the market had slowed down and they wouldn’t be able to get the best price.

In his claim, the rapper said that he was

“…struggling to make ends meet while trying to keep up my reputation as a public figure, pay my own bills, and take care of my son.”

Early Years

Alvin Nathaniel Joiner was born on September 18, 1974, in Detroit, Michigan. This is where Xzibit grew up. When he was 10, he started rapping to help him deal with the death of his mother. At age 14, he got into trouble and his father wouldn’t let him stay in the house. At age 17, Xzibit was let go by the state because he was an adult. He got some money, hopped in his jeep, and drove toward Los Angeles, California. He says that his mother, who was a writer, gives him ideas.

Rap Career

At age 14, Xzibit began rapping under the name “Exhibit A.” In February 1995, he made his first professional record appearance on the song “Hit and Run” from the Alkaholiks’ album “Coast II Coast.” In the same year, he signed with Loud records, and in October 1996, his highly praised first album, “At the Speed of Life,” came out. The record got to No. 74 on the Billboard Hot 200 and No. 38 on the Canadian Albums Chart. His first big hit, “Paparazzi,” was a big hit in Germany.

In 1998, he put out his second album, “40 Dayz & 40 Nightz,” which got a lot of attention on the West Coast. Critics liked it, and it’s now thought of as a classic West Coast hip-hop record. It led to four hits, including “What You See Is What You Get.” Dr. Dre eventually noticed Xzibit, and he helped him get several high-profile guest spots. In 1999, he had his first role in a movie called “The Breaks.”

The big break for Xzibit came when his third studio album, “Restless,” came out. Dr. Dre was the executive producer, and Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and other very famous people were on the album as guests. It went platinum and sold almost 2 million copies. It also gave rise to three singles. Xzibit kept acting in movies, such as “The Wash,” “The Slim Shady Show,” and “8 Mile.” In 2002, he was a guest star on “Cedric the Entertainer Presents” and released his fourth studio album, “Man vs. Machine.” The album went gold, but the three singles that came from it didn’t do well on the charts.

Xzibit has worked with well-known artists like 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 artists like the Russian rapper Timati, the German Raptile, the Australian Bliss N Eso, and the Pakistani Adil Omar. People like Xzibit’s rhymes because he speaks from the heart as a real person, not as a hip-hop character.

After taking a break from music for four years, he worked with Extreme Music to put out a new collection of songs called “Urban Ammo 2” in March 2011. The next album by Xzibit came out in 2012. It was called “Napalm.”

Pimp My Ride

Xzibit was the host of the MTV show “Pimp My Ride” from 2004 to 2007. The show made him famous all over the world. Ironically, the show cost Xzibit money because he couldn’t go on tour while it was being made and he didn’t get paid much per episode. On the other hand, the show made Xzibit a well-known musician who is still important today. After the show was canceled, he starred in more movies and made appearances on crime shows on TV.

Pimp My Ride Salary

At the height of “Pimp My Ride,” Xzibit’s annual salary from MTV was $497,175.

Another Job

In February 2016, it was announced that he would be playing the role of Shyne on “Empire.” From 2016 to 2019, he was in 38 episodes of the show. Xzibit has said that his next studio album will be called “King Makers” and will come out in 2021. Xzibit has also used his own voice in a number of video games over the course of his career.

Personal Life

On November 29, 2014, at the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Laguna Beach, California, Xzibit got married to Krista Joiner, who he had been dating for a long time. Unfortunately, the wedding ended in a bit of a strange way. The police stopped Xzibit in Laguna Beach for speeding on the night of the wedding, which was technically Sunday morning. After the rapper failed a test to see if he was drunk, the police took him into custody and charged him with DUI. In February 2021, Krista asked X to end their marriage.

Together, Xzibit and Krista had two kids: Xavier and Gatlyn. Xavier was born too soon on May 15, 2008, and he died only eleven days later. Xzibit has another son named Tremaine Joiner who is from a previous relationship (born in June 1995.)

Gumball 3000

In 2007, Xzibit took part in the Gumball 3000 rally. He drove a Jaguar XJ220 that was black. On the first day of the rally, Dutch police took away his driver’s license because he was going more than 160 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. After he got his penalty, his co-driver Fredwreck Nassar took over the wheel, and they were able to keep going. Later, in an interview with Dutch radio host Reinout “Q Bah” van Gendt, Xzibit said that he had confused the kilometers for the miles. He never got his license back from the Dutch police, so when he got back to the United States, he had to apply for a new one. He took part in the Gumball 3000s again in 2013 and 2014.

Real Estate

In 2003, Xzibit paid $670,000 for a home in Woodland Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles, that was 3,160 square feet. He tried to sell the house for $1.2 million in 2008. By 2010, the price was down to $650,000. He seems to have agreed to sell the house for $610,000 in December 2010.
