Xzibit's 3-8 Tattoo

Unread post by TarHeelRED » November 25th, 2004, 7:11 pm

Does anybody know what the 3-8 tattoo on Xzibit's arm mean? I've seen him on Pimp My Ride wearing a 38 jersey too.

With everybody talking abouth Xzibit being a Crip, I thought the 3-8 tattoo(that's how it's tattoed on his arm, a hyphen between the 3 and the 8)was gang-related.

its probably his football number. i don't think its any gang or anything hes in, cause the way its inked on his arm, looks like its off a football jersey.

But I don't understand why the hyphen is between the 3 and the 8. Ain't no jersey #'s that I know of that got a hyphen in it between the 1st and 2nd #. Xzibit know though, somethings are better left unknown.

i think it could be the chinese thang.

or it could probably b cos hes a Crip:

The 3rd letter in the alphabet is C.
The 8th letter is H. so his 38 tattoo could mean "Crip Hood" or suttin.
if hes fru compton, then it could mean "compton hood".
i dont know where X is frum, cos i dont listen 2 his music, so its never been important 2 me.

holla back

XZIBIT aint a Crip. He's from Detroit. "38" is his jersey number. Look at the font. 38th Street is a Eastside SC mexican gang who beefs with the Pueblos and Villians. People are overanalyzing mundane shit.

i think hes crip because in one of his songs he says "get it CRIP while the gettin is good" and he has a song called "get your walk on" or something and in the video everyone is crip walking and at the end it says "this is not a dance its a way of living"
