Who Plays Shine On Empire?

The rapper hosted Pimp My Ride from 2004-2007.  If you’re thinking about mentioning the show to Xzibit I would think again.  A fan recently asked the rapper if he could pimp their ride and Xzibit responded with the following message:

That’s a tweet that Shine would send! Fox’s casting is on point.  The punch he throws while at Hakeem and Laura’s wedding created chaos and led Laura to back out of the wedding.

Let’s take a look at Xzibit’s Top 10 Instagram Moments:
10. When he’s with WC.

9. On his 41st birthday.

So, yesterday I turned 41. I didn’t know how I felt about it till this a.m. You’re looking at someone who didn’t expect to make it past 20-21, so when my life took the turns that it has and put me in the position of being a parent, and artist, a business and a husband, I didn’t even think about my age. I used to live every moment thinking about “XZIBIT” and how to make this thing I created at 13 yrs old become bigger faster stronger than the year before. As time went on, I stopped having fun doing it. Not because the experience of being an artist and seeing a dream come to life was “bad” but, I think the leeches and industry suckers made it feel like I was working for them and not for myself. So I left. I just lived my life. For me. Watched my kids grow, got married, didn’t really care too much about being in the spotlight, repaired some bridges I had burnt, went fishing (A LOT) and cleared my headspace. My circle got really small and tight. No new friends and in turn, no new enemies. Yeah, I still have people that seem to want war with me, but they don’t really know what they are asking for. I’ll just leave that one there. I’m feeling great about where I am in life. I’ve matured, and want to continue to do so. See, you can “plan” your life as much as you want, but what I didn’t know was that LIFE has its own agenda, that is meant to teach you what you NEED to know, you’re just along for the ride. 41 years young, hope if you’re reading this and you’re from the same bottom that I’m from, that you get to live your dreams out and make it to 41, because nothing is promised and a lot of my homies didn’t make it. I’m thankful for everything and everyone in my life. Thank you for taking this journey with me. Now I’m back at it!!!! #Compton was a great introduction to the new music, the re- launch of Open Bar Ent. (The label) is right around the corner, new artist, tours (starting in OCT) new TV and film projects coming, @openbarradio AND working along side my family at #ThePharmacy. Life has been great to me, but I didn’t come this far, to only come this far. Let’s go. XZ

2. When he’s on 3 wheels.

1. When he puts a ring on it.  It was beautiful despite the rapper getting arrested for DUI after the wedding reception.

Yesterday was our wedding day. It was nothing short of amazing. We were surrounded by friends and family and had an outstanding ceremony. It was not tainted by negative energy and I made sure it stayed that way. There was a time I thought I would NEVER get married. I thought that being single was the only way for me, not knowing that I was giving up more of myself to people who didn’t care about me or love me unconditionally. I had to do a LOT of growing up and over time came the maturity I needed to be able to make a commitment stronger than anything that I have done in my life outside of being a father to my two beautiful sons. Yesterday, I made my family complete. I had to realize that I am not perfect and I don’t always do the right thing, but when I was standing there, watching it all unfold, the only thing I could think about was, I am worthy of being a husband and she deserves the world and the security that comes from being a wife. I have no regrets about my past, the good and the bad. But now,this is my future. My sons needed to see that. They now have an example to reference in life when it comes to being a man and how to treat a real woman when you find her, or in my case where she puts up with your bullshit until you come Thank you to the groomsmen and bridesmaids who made the day go so well, thank you to the wedding planner who made our day feel and look like a movie,(details details) @bignutellapb for keeping the idiots out and making sure we had no problems. @curtchambers Put together a band that rocked like you wouldn’t believe, couldn’t have asked for a better moment. So now what? Well, we go forward, take the good with the bad and make room for blessings. Before I got married, some of my homies asked me if I was nervous, I said “you’re only nervous when you’re not sure.” Keep it pushing ladies and gents, cause I’m going forward. @mrskristajoiner
