Xzibit promoted to series regular for Empire Season 3

Posted 07 July 2016 by Justin Russo | | 3 Comments »

Empire fans can expect to see a lot more of Shyne Johnson in Season 3, as rapper-turned-actor Xzibit will be a series regular.

Xzibit on Empire

Fans were introduced to Xzibit’s character, Shyne Johnson, in the back half of Season 2. There are many famous people and artists that have appeared on Empire, so at first we thought that Xzibit’s role would be a brief one. However it’s now been reported that Xzibit will be a series regular in Season 3. Shyne Johnson ain’t going anywhere baby! (Unless Lucious kills him.) Shyne came into the play in the Season 2 finale, when Lucious admits to Cookie that he did a job for gangsters Tommy and Rosie while she was in prison. The only other person who knows about the hit is Shyne, whom Lucious screwed over. With Tariq and the Feds sniffing around, Lucious and Cookie know that they need to cover their bases and get Shyne on their side. This entails giving him an invite to Hakeem’s wedding, but Shyne shows up to the wedding drunk and causes a scene. Now Shyne didn’t strike us as the brightest crayon in the box, but more of Shyne’s identity is set to be revealed in Empire Season 3.

Xzibit To Guest Star On FOX TV Show ‘Empire’

Posted 26 February 2016 by Justin Russo | , , , | 4 Comments »

Xzibit is bringing his acting talents to Empire. Mr. X To The Z, born Alvin Joiner, will be appearing on the FOX drama as a rival to Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard).

Deadline reports that:

Xzibit will star as Leslie “Shyne” Johnson aside Terrence Howard’s polarizing character, Lucious. The rapper will embody a music mogul with a close ear to the streets. “Shyne” also has resentment towards Lucious after getting blackballed for his lifestyle. Leslie “Shyne” Johnson is 100% wolf and 100% gangster. He has managed artists, started record imprints and even sold a few units here and there, but his bread and butter always has been — much to his years-long frustration — drugs, guns and extortion. Feeling shut out by the other heavy hitters in the music industry, he carries a big chip on his shoulder, especially for Lucious.

New Music: Back Up Off Me – Bishop Lamont (Ft. Xzibit & Kaleb Simmonds)

Posted 20 February 2016 by Justin Russo | , , , | No Comments »

Just days after a standout feature for Koache, Xzibit does it again. The platinum MC gets down with Bishop Lamont, who is a fellow Dr. Dre affiliate of the mid-2000s. “Back Up Off Me” is a single from Lamont’s perceived 2016 debut, The Reformation.

As the title suggests, the record—featuring singer Kaleb Simmonds—is about pushing others for much needed room. X opens things up with a raspy and rowdy verse, talking like he did on his first two solo LPs. Bishop comes in next, showing why he caught the ear of Dre as well as Caltroit in the last decade. This is hard-nosed Hip-Hop that combines B-Boy pride with street-tested bravado.

New Music: Koache – Turn Me Back (Ft. Xzibit)

Posted 20 February 2016 by Justin Russo | , , , | No Comments »

Xzibit and Nottz go back. On the acclaimed 2000 LP Restless, the Virginia producer/MC shared a track with Dr. Dre in “U Know.” X-to-the-Z and Nottz Raw would work again on the first Serial Killers project a couple years ago. This time, the V-A to C-A link surrounds Los Angles, California rapper Koache.

“Turn Me Back” is a song warning haters and testers against making people revert to their old ways of handling things. Both X’ and Nottz are 20-plus-year veterans who have stayed evolving and refuse to be dragged down. Based on this groovy track, and Xzibit’s fighting feature verse, this is a great pathway for Koache.

Game Point, Koache’s forthcoming album (March 8), features more than half the songs produced by Nottz.

BIOGRAPHY

Xzibit Pimp My Ride Birth Date: 18 Sep 1974
Birth Place: Detroit
Birth Name: Alvin Nathaniel Joiner

A name familiar to millions across the world - a hustler in the music, film, and television world, X is a performer as likely to be seen on-stage thrilling listeners in Germany as he is on cinema screens in blockbuster franchises like xXx 2 and The X Files: I Want To Believe. Let him tell it and he is simply "a self-made man from poverty." Throughout his career he's embodied a Do-It-Yourself mentality, resulting in the Platinum recording artist becoming a superstar with a formidable fanbase that spans the entire globe.

X began his grind to superstardom as he came to the attention of attentive Hip-Hop listenersas a member of the revered rap collective Likwit Crew. Founder and West Coast Hip-Hop veteran King Tee enlisted raucous group Tha Alkaholiks and newcomer X into the clique as original Likwit representatives. From there, the tenacious X unleashed his 1996 debut, At The Speed Of Life. Considered by many to be an underground rap classic, it arguably made him the breakout star of the Likwit collective. The album also spawned a definitive West Coast Hip-Hop cut in the cautionary "Paparazzi." "That song still gets a crazy reception from my fans," says its creator. "It first blew up overseas, but it ended up travelling everywhere. It's a timeless record." With enlightened Hip-Hop listeners swarming to offer their approval, he swiftly followed up this release with another Hip-Hop staple. Sophomore release 40 Dayz & 40 Nights was lauded by critics and fans alike, as its lead single "What U See Is What U Get" spent an astonishing six weeks atop the chart on BET's Rap City... read more at the Xzibit Biography page.

PIMP MY RIDE

Pimp My Ride DVD Cover Season 1 Mr X to the Z and the good people at West Coast Customs make people's cars go from dirt to pimped in this 30 minute show that airs weekly on MTV. Featuring Los Angeles-area aftermarket shop West Coast Customs, “MTV Pimp My Ride” selects young, automotively challenged Southern Californians and transforms their rust buckets into triumphs.

For many young adults, getting the insurance or finance to fix up their cars can be difficult and taking out a car loan is often no an option. “It’s not just about the cars anymore,” X said, but also “the boost that these kids get in their self-esteem. You can see it in their faces.” "Everybody has had a bucket in their life," said X, using L.A. slang for a clunker. He has had two of his own rides — a Hummer H2 and a Mercedes-Benz S500 — "pimped" at West Coast Customs. A typical episode begins with X paying a surprise visit to the viewer and humorously highlighting the car's numerous problem areas. Then it's off to West Coast Customs, where a team of professionals disassembles the vehicle and completely refurbishes it with custom rims and paint, plush interiors and the latest in lighting, car audio and video accessories. Wheels, Grilles, Body Kits, Customer Paint, Rims, Tires, Car Audio, Car DVD Video and Computer Systems, and many more crazy additions are transplanted into a Pimped Rides every episode! ... read more at the Pimp My Ride page.
