His storytelling and dynamic lyricism power up this arresting banger. Right out of the gate, he recounts how a romance unfurls between “a fan of underground rappers” and “one in particular who was locked up doing time.” An ominous piano loop wraps around the track’s tense beat as X-Raided warns, “Guess sometimes you have to fail to learn a cautionary tale.” It culminates on a chant during the chorus, “He had to get up, get out, get out.” The visual energizes the story on-screen. It explores the ups and downs of the relationship in question, literally bringing the lyrics to life in vivid fashion. It concludes with a climactic moment of breaking free.
Following a first-degree murder charge as a juvenile, X-Raided spent 26 years, 5 months, and 26 days behind bars. The Board of Parole deemed him worthy of reentry into society in May 2018, and he has made the most of his time as a free man. Not only did he release music at a prolific pace and appear on Tech N9ne’s chart-busting album ASIN9NE, but he notably completed a series of reentry programs, including the Dream Center and Hope For Prisoners. His mission to decrease recidivism and increase restorative justice has garnered the attention and praise from various governors, senators, members of U.S. congress, and law enforcement.
Get ready for X-Raided’s next era!
