Xzibit, who garnered international recognition for hosting the well-known MTV show ‘Pimp My Ride,’ has been under the media spotlight for years; but this fame brought him a fortune? Let’s see Xzibit’s net worth in 2021.
The rapper and record producer, born Alvin Nathaniel Joiner, began his professional musical career just after releasing his debut studio album ‘At The Speed Of Life‘ on October 15, 1996. Joiner, who made a name for himself as an actor, tv host, radio personality, and songwriter, garnered high praises for his album which peaked at no 74 on Billboard 200 chart. Following his song ‘Paparazzi‘ from the album ranked on the Billboard Hot 100, he signed a deal with Loud Records.
Almost two years later, Xzibit dropped his second album called ‘40 Dayz & 40 Nightz.’ The album featuring his hit ‘What U See Is What U Get’ received high praises from both audiences and music critics. So much so that, West Coast rapper Dr. Dre teamed up with Xzibit and served as an executive producer for his third album ‘Restless’ which would be a groundbreaking release over the years.
‘Restless’ containing singles ‘Front 2 Back,’ ‘X’ and ‘Get Your Walk On,’ was launched back on December 12, 2000, and peaked at number 14 on Billboard 200. After the album which was certified gold, in the next years, the rapper also dropped highly acclaimed works including ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction,’ ‘Full Circle.’ Until he started his TV as a host, the rapper made millions of dollars worth of fortune as a rapper & record producer.
What’s the net worth of Xzibit in 2021?
Even though the rapper is usually compared with his fellows Ice Cube, Eminem, and Busta Rhymes in terms of net worth, according to multiple sources, Xzibit has $3 million as of 2021.
As we mentioned before, he began hosting for MTV show, ‘Pimp My Ride‘ in 2004; this was a turning point for his career. So much so that, the TV show became the main source of his income. The star, who worked as a host for the said show for 5 seasons, also appeared in various TV features including ‘Empire,’ ‘Gridiron Gang,’ ‘The X-Files: I Want to Believe,’ ‘Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,’ and ‘SunDogs.’
While the MTV show brought him a fortune, its cancelation made him file for bankruptcy twice; just in a year, he lost more than a half-million-dollar.
