West Coast rapper Xzibit was overjoyed less than two weeks ago when he announced the birth of his newborn son, Xavier Kingston Joiner. Just 11 days after the happy news, the rapper is mourning the death of his son, who died early Monday morning. X informed his fans of his loss on his MySpace blog. "This week was extremly difficult for him because his lungs were not strong enough to handle regular oxygen on his own," the rapper explained. "Xavier passed away this morning at 3:30am and I must tell you this, It is unatural for a parent to bury a child."

X went on to tell fans that he's going to take some time to deal with the sudden death of his son. In the meantime, the rapper is set to appear in the upcoming 'X-Files' film.
