Sacramento, CA –
As X-Raided celebrates the release of his long awaited 15th studio album California Dreamin’, the Sacramento rap legend has dropped a visual for the LP’s second single, “Get Off Me.”
“I made this one for the dancers,” X tells HipHopDX of the Mekanix-produced song. “It’s that traditional Northern California hyphy music for the streets and the club. I wanted the dancers to have something to swag out to, and we pulled it off. Let’s have some fun for the summer!”
After serving a 26-year prison sentence for murder, X was released in 2018.
In an interview with DX this March, he explained the creation of his new 18-song LP was a dynamic journey that went from anger and defiance to acceptance and resolution — and (finally) to redemption and gratitude.
“I’m hoping that I can set out a blueprint for anyone who’s thinking about making changes in their lives so that they’ll see that there is a path to take to do so.”
