This season, the name on everybody and their mama's lips is gonna be Xzibit, because Pimp My Ride's host with the most is fired up and ready to take you to that next level of ride "pimpification" you didn't even know existed.

So what's the scoop on your Pimp Master of Ceremonies? Born Alvin Nathaniel Joiner in Detroit, Michigan, Xzibit started making a name for himself on the West Coast rap scene in the late '80s. His 1996 debut At the Speed of Life featured production by DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill and included the brilliant underground hit "Paparazzi."

Throughout his career, Xzibit has collaborated with artists such as Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and the veteran KRS-One. The rapper achieved his first US Top 5 hit with his album Man vs. Machine, which debuted at number 3 in October 2002.

As you already know, X is a pimp of many hats. In addition to contributing to the beautification of the streets with Pimp My Ride, Xzibit still finds time to put it down in the studio. Prepare yourself (and your ride!) for the bangin' new beats he's about to release with his fifth full-length album Weapons of Mass Destruction--in stores soon.
