David Hasselhoff and Xzibit - The 2014 Gumball 3000 arrives on London's Regent Street. Thousand's of people gathered on a very warm Sunday afternoon to catch a glimpse of the exotic cars as they made their way down one of the city's main thoroughfares. The drivers will rest in London overnight before heading to Paris, which is the next stop of the rally. - London, United Kingdom - Sunday 8th June 2014
Xzibit - Xzibit hosts the Official Bonita Platinum Tequila Red Carpet Launch Party in Las Vegas at Hyde Bellagio Resort and Casino - Las Vegas, NV, United States - Saturday 2nd March 2013
With his imminent return to the music world, Xzibit has talked about the tragic factor that kept him away for so long - the death of his new-born baby son, back in 2008.
'Pimp My Ride' host, Xzibit, has emotionally revealed that the tragic loss of his new-born son in 2008 led to an unfortunate break down in his career as a rapper and actor. Alvin Joiner, better known as Xzibit, was understandably devastated when his son, Xavier Kingston Joiner, was born premature and died in May, 2008. The rapper has taken years to return to the recording booth since the death, yet his return is to be signified by the upcoming release of his very personal album, 'Napalm'.
Xzibit, who has two other sons - Tremayne and Gatlyn - spoke to Billboard's 'Close Up' series, to explain: "I haven't put out a record for six years. I had a real personal tragedy. Xavier Kingston was my second born son and he passed away prematurely. He lived for 13 days then he passed. Not only was it devastating to me but to my girl. It [is] something that you just can't just up and (say), 'Oh well, guess I better go tour.' It ain't like that. You know? So sometimes you have to disconnect yourself from that."
Terrence McDonagh is a cop who's not really known for his courageous acts but when he sees a man drowning in a cell, he jumps to save him. His act of bravery might have won him a promotion to lieutenant but it's also left him with a bad back injury.
As his back becomes more of a problem McDonagh develops a serious drug problem, turning to any dark alley to find relief. Bribery and stealing drugs put into evidence become part of the norm for him, the most stability in his life comes from a relationship he has with a prostitute called Frankie but when he finds her beaten by a client, he takes matters into his own hands. Working in a drug induced state becomes more of an issue for McDonagh. Whilst trying to solve the murders of six Senegal immigrants it appears his personal life and current case will cross paths.

A paper-doll sequel with paper-thin performances and avideo-game plot -- a ridiculously implausible presidential coup plannedby an arch-conservative Secretary of Defense (teeth-gritting Willem Dafoe)-- this is nothing but a sorry attempt to ride the explosion-shredded coattailsof 2002's "XXX"without bringing back its star. Vin Diesel apparently got a big head fromhaving the first picture custom-tailored for him, and was booted afterasking for $25 million to reprise his role as an extreme-sports-jock spy.
So instead, Cube plays a Navy SEAL imprisoned for insubordinationwho is busted out by loose-cannon National Security Agency honcho SamuelL. Jackson (tough-guying his way to an easy paycheck) and deputized asthe new Agent Triple-X after Jackson's underground headquarters is raidedby gadget-laden baddies in black body armor. Who these thugs are and whatthey were doing there is barely explained, and no reason is offered forwhy, with all its agents, intelligence and firepower, the NSA must relyon a lone prison escapee to investigate and thwart a takeover of the U.S.government.
But director Lee Tamahori (who helped dumb down the lastJames Bond movie) doesn't really care as long as the next 5,000-round shoot-out,five-story fireball or $500,000 sports-car chase is just around the corner.This is the kind of brain-dead action movie in which window-rattling, wind-generatinghelicopters inexplicably sneak up on people, characters "lie low"by squealing around street corners in Washington D.C. while driving tricked-out,iridescent pimp-mobiles, and federal agents have to be certifiable moronsin order for the plot to advance.
