Is Galpin Auto Sports hiring? Because rapper/actor Xzibit is broke. During his Pimp My Ride days on MTV, X was raking in the dough – in 2007, he earned $497,175 from the crazy custom car show. The very next year, after the show was canceled, he earned a decidedly un-Hollywoodesque $67,510... an income drop of nearly 86 percent. According to public records, Xzibit now owes $959,523 in delinquent taxes.

Filing for bankruptcy twice in 2009 didn't get him anywhere, since both filings were dismissed. As of July 2009, Xzibit's assets were listed at $739,433, yet his debts totaled around $1.4 million. The assets are primarily attribute to various homes owned in California and New Mexico.

        • 4 Years Ago
        Sounds like he invested it in real estate that crashed though.
        • 4 Years Ago
        He did invest his money. All he has to do is liquidate his chrome wheels and gold chains.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed. Waste your money, go broke, see if we care. Maybe MC Hammer can start giving these guys primers on what not to do.

      "I smash you critics like a overhand right from Riddick." He's a pretty charismatic individual and the only reason that show even got on the air. I'm sure everyone who got their ride Pimped would have rather have had the money spent on a newish Civic or Focus.

      On a side note: I hope that one day I will be able to make 67,500.

      "Xzibit broke, needs someone to pimp his checking account?"

      Welcome to ABT, Auto Blog Tattler.

      Xzibit and Alyssa Milano on the same day! I feel so informed now.

      Say what you want about his financial woes, but I enjoyed his car show. He was turning junkers into semi-appealing vehicles for young people. Granted some of the modifications were over the top, but it was TV show. It had to try very hard to do something crazy but somewhat practical enough.

      I hope he gets this under him and finds some success again.

      That sucks, Xzibit seems like a pretty cool guy.
        • 4 Years Ago
        ...... that didn't pay his taxes.

        Maybe he and Wesley Snipes can hang out in jail together.

      Yo dawg I filed for bankruptcy, then I filed it again, so I can be bankrupt while bankrupt
      • 4 Years Ago
      I can just hear his lawyer during the case to get his taxes lowered: "Xzibit A, your Honor,..."

      Glad someone suffered for being in that awful show.
