Xzibit’s Ten-Day Old Son Suddenly Dies

Xzibit suffered a painful lost over the holiday weekend as his newborn son passed away just 10 days after he was born prematurely.The rapper broke the news himself on his MySpace blog. He wrote that he shared good times with his fans in a public manner, so he would share the news of his son, Xavier Joiner, as well. His son died from lung complications, X explained.

“I am telling you this because of the same reason I tell you when I’m having great times, life is too short to be fake,” he wrote. “Hold on to your kids, if you have them. Protect them and show them you love them everyday you wake up and see them. Don’t 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.”

The rapper was seen as a doting father to another son of his on an episode of MTV Cribs. X was also often pictured with his child. His newborn, Xavier Joiner was born May 15 and passed May 26.--Jayson Rodriguez

    My Blessings to you and your family X. The world is a cruel place and some have been so desensitized to death. I am happy to see that a real rapper has expressed himself in the lite of reality, rather than in this “gangsta paradise” that all these other fools are living in. Keep it real because we need more men like X to express the importance of life, educate and liberty.

  • Ace

    I come to pay my respects I got a seed on the way now and I pray every night that my baby is born with no complications. I had wrote some shit about Jonathan but his ignorant ass comment shouldn’t steal the emotion we are feeling for X’s loss. My prayers go out 2 all…


    keep your head up X!

    B strong X. I can’t imagine the feeling. I got two sons myself and they’re my motivation and my reason to get up every morning to get this money. I’ve been listenin to X ever since he made ‘foundation’ and everytime I hear that I think about my kids. Much respect to Xzibit.
