20: Xzibit – Pimp My Ride
Before Xzibit was putting rims on a toaster, he was a star rapper. But MTV reality TV show “Pimp My Ride” took Xzibit’s fame to the next level. Sadly, Xzibit didn’t stick around past the sixth season and slowly fell out of the limelight. The rapper did appear on the cast of Empire, and acting is his sole focus now. Xzibit released a new music video in 2020, and it seems he is back in the studio for a new album release.
“Pimp My Ride” had phenomenal success, although it has recently come to light that a lot of the work done on the show wasn’t authentic. The rapper has an extensive car collection himself, with a 1963 Impala being the pinnacle of his rides. Needless to say, Xzibit is still in the limelight, albeit in a less noticeable role than he was before.
