Premature Babies

Rapper Xzibit Looses His Son To Prematurity

I am sad to report that Rapper Xhibit has lost his son to prematurity.

The new dad wrote on his Myspace blog yesterday morning that the baby’s lungs weren’t strong enough.

Here is the entry:

AS you all know, I shared with you the announcement of my newborn son Xavier Kingston Joiner on may 15th and also informed you that he was born prematurely. well this week was extremely difficult for him because his lungs were not strong enough to handle regular oxygen on his own.

Xavier passed away this morning at 3:30am and I must tell you this, It is unnatural for a parent to bury a child. 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. 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.

I am thankful for all of my blessings and I’m not one to question God’s perfect plan, so I leave you with great love and thanks for the love that was sent earlier on my previous blog to my son. Of course I need to take some time and handle my loss, STAY FOCUSED PEOPLE. Its not promised to any of us.

R.I.P Xavier May 15th 2008- May 26th 2008

It was not reported what the baby’s gestation was or his weight at birth. We wish the family well.

  • Sorry to hear of your loss Xzibit. I live very close to you in Northridge, and have seen you on occasion. May 15th is also my birthday.
