The Complete First Season of MTV’s ‘Pimp My Ride’, with west coast rap and hip-hop legend Xzibit, will be released March 22nd by Paramount Pictures

The DVD comes with 3 discs. Every show spotlighting West Coast Customs miraculous ‘makeovers’ to pimp the rides of mostly worthy individuals.

Along with the shows, that if you watch ‘Pimp My Ride’, you know they take on everything from classic Cadillac’s, Mustangs, pick-up trucks to even a VW Bug; this DVD treats the viewer to out-takes, a video from Xzibit and we get to see what some of the folks at West Coast Customs roll in.

I don’t want to ruin it for the viewer so I will not say much about how they roll at West Coast Customs, but I will say the surprise is Mad Mike’s ‘ride’. Mad Mike is the ‘Tech Genius’ who hooks up all the wild audio and video systems and customizes all the inner workings of the rides that they ‘Pimp’. All I will say is maybe Mad Mike’s clip should have been on another MTV show, ‘Cribs’. Check out what I’m talking about, this is a real surprise.

If you ever seen the show and thought it would be kool to work there or to just hang out for a day; well this DVD will only heighten that feeling. Not only seeing the employees of West Coast Customs in the shows but seeing all of them in the out takes gives ya the feel that these are ‘real’ people. From the owner of West Coast Customs Ryan to all the folks there including Q, the manager, Alex, Big Dane, Mad Mike, Ish, Aren and the list goes on, these guys all have a special talent and this series and this DVD shows all of their talents in full swing.

The gangsta image of Xzibit is totally blown in the out takes. Now I am not saying that X is not a pure west coast gangsta rapper legend but I am saying that he lets his real side show a lot in these out takes. He is one of those guys that you just got to have love for and as my daughter (who watched the DVD in it’s entirety with me) said “He is so kool, and cute too’. Well yea I will go with the ‘kool’ and I will leave the ‘cute’ comments to the females.

If you are a ‘Pimp My Ride’ fan and viewer you will certainly love this DVD, and if you are one of those who have missed a few of the shows; you will have to get this.

Like it is said in the DVD; “Ryan (owner of West Coast Customs) makes it all possible’, so thanks Ryan for all the good stuff and of course thanks to Xzibit and MTV.

Check out this DVD and relax with Xzibit. On a rating of 1-10 this DVD gets a 9.0. Great shows and insight, put together well.
