Xzibit to Launch Signature Shoe With Dada

Rapper Xzibit Signs Deal With Dada Athletic Footwear to 'Pimp His Kicks'

LOS ANGELES, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- International rap superstar Xzibit has signed an endorsement deal with athletic footwear manufacturers Dada to produce his own shoe. The line, aptly named "Pimp Your Kicks" alluding to Xzibit's other role as host of popular MTV show "Pimp My Ride," will hit stores worldwide in August 2005.

Xzibit was at the forefront of the underground hip-hop scene until hosting "Pimp My Ride" turned him into a household name. After a taste of the big screen in "XXX State of the Union," the Detroit born star has now turned his hand to designing. Xzibit has added his trademark silver "X" insignia to the collection, which features a variety of styles, colors and quality synthetic leather fabrics.

Commenting on the deal, Xzibit said: "Dada has always been competitive and respected and I'm excited to design and promote a shoe that represents both of us so well."

Lavetta Willis, CEO, Dada added: "Xzibit embraces all things that are Dada." His personality, style, innovation and success in music, film and television displays his uniqueness, mass appeal and ability to cross cultures. We at Dada feel he is an amazing representative of the brand."

A press conference and launch campaign are in the works so stay tuned.
