Tipped for a momentous and very special comeback, underground rap phenomenon and Sacramento native X-Raided unleashes his anxiously awaited Strange Music debut album, A Prayer In Hell, out now.

He celebrates the arrival of the LP with the provocative and powerful music video for his new single “Parasitic.” The visual opens with X-Raided and Tech N9ne in the midst of an ominous conversation. Soon, it jumps to a different kind of street story. A young boy witnesses the way the gang lifestyle leeches on individuals around his neighborhood much like a parasite, infecting the environment and spreading darkness. Stuck in the middle of this eternal conflict, he attempts to broker peace.

A Prayer In Hell also boasts the fan favourite “Legendary” [feat. King Iso ]. It has just begun to pick up traction on DSPs. Bubbling up to the forefront of the cultural conversation, X-Raided just sat down with the New York Post for an exclusive interview about the Menendez Brothers. He candidly speaks on their friendship in prison and mentorship as they affected his journey toward freedom.

He initially set the stage for the album with “Stratus Fear” [feat. Tech N9ne ]. So far, it has already posted up over 318K YouTube views on the music video. “Stratus Fear” was added to 2 popular music playlists, Rap Heavy Hitters on Apple Music and Alternative Hip-Hop on TIDAL.

A Prayer In Hell follows his journey from over two decades behind bars to re-entry in the world and a new lease on life where no moment will be wasted—as evidenced by his relentless output thus far…
