So here we are just a few weeks away from the release of the film, and the promotion is about to be in full swing. Of course Im excited about it and now I get to do my part and spread the word. I have a few dates in germany via interviews and apperances in Berlin I believe. Anyway I will be there for a week. Then I come home to do domestic promotion, you will be well aware of this movie before July 25th. @ least we dont have to open up against Batman, I heard that film is going to open very well. I am just gearing up after such a difficult time and thankful for ALL the LOVE and SUPPORT that I have recieved, It keeps me going folks…..more than you know. My struggles have never been easy, But those things that define me as a man are written in my battle scars so I wear them proudly. Never allow the things that have NOT happend be the excuse to not try.You LEARN from your ups AND your downs. Im still here and my family is behind me as well as you guys…the fans. Music to me has been a voice for the underdogs, as it continues to be. I to this day believe that I have not said what I was put here to say yet thru music, I still feel like I havent written my best music yet. I have alot of work to do and procrastination is like masturbation……..YOU ARE FUCKING YOURSELF. (thats from one of my records called “HANDLE YOUR BIZNESS” go do your homework) So I want you to check out my new film and new music on its way. As I continue to relate, communicate, and bang new tunes out for you and yours, Just know I got your back, cause at the right time…..you all had mine. less GO!

Val Kilmer and rapper Xzibit will join Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes in a remake of “Bad Lieutenant.”

Industry magazine Variety reports that Val Kilmer and rapper Xzibit will join Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes in a remake of the Abel Ferrara-directed cult film, Bad Lieutenant.

Werner Herzog is directing and Nu Image/Millennium Films is financing.

Cage is set to play the eponymous police lieutenant, and Kilmer will play his partner.

Herzog’s version will be a re-imagining of the original film, with Xzibit playing Cage’s nemesis, Big Fade.

According to Variety, Edward R. Pressman is producing with Alan and Gabe Polsky, Stephen Belafonte, Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett and Cage’s Saturn Films.

In the original film, Harvey Keitel played the Bad Lieutenant, a corrupt and drug-addicted police officer that attempts to seek redemption.

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.
