September 17th, 2006 4:33pm EDT
Rapper Xzibit fears young black Americans get involved in crime because they'll never be able to compete with their rich white neighbours, who have fortunes passed on to them.

The thoughtful Pimp My Ride star understands why some of his peers turn to stealing and drug dealing as a means to get rich quick - because they don't have trust funds to turn to.

He says, "I think our biggest problem as young black men in this country is that we have become used to immediate gratification and that will destroy you. We come from a generation where our families don't have trust funds or fam...
