Former 'Pimp My Ride' host Xzibit loses premature newborn baby boy
By Christopher Rocchio, 05/30/2008
Former Pimp My Ride host Xzibit's two-week old son Xavier Kingston Joiner died early Monday morning.
"He was born prematurly. well this week was extremly difficult for him because his lungs were not strong enough to handle regular oxygen on his own," the 33-year-old rapper wrote Monday morning on his personal MySpace page.
Xavier was born on May 15 before passing away at 3:30AM on Monday.
"I must tell you this, It is unnatural for a parent to bury a child," continued Xzibit on his MySpace page.
"I am telling you this because of the same reason I tell you when im having great times, life is too short to be fake. Hold on to your kids if you have them, protect them and show them you love them everyday you wake up and see them, dont take a second you get to hug them teach them and care for them for granted. You can have all the material wealth in the universe but it is NOTHING compared to having your family. I am thankful for all of my blessings and im not one to question God's perfect plan, so I leave you with great love and thanks for the love that was sent earlier on my pervious blog to my son. Of course I need to take some time and handle my loss, STAY FOCUSED PEOPLE. Its not promised to any of us."
Xzibit's post concludes with "R.I.P Xavier May 15th 2008- May 26th 2008."
Pimp My Ride premiered on MTV in March 2004 and subsequently aired several more seasons.
