X-Raided is a gangsta rapper from Sacramento, CA. He has been an active member of the Crips gang since he was young. He was convicted of murder charges around the time his first LP, Psycho Active, came out. The album's violent lyrics were used as evidence, as was the album art which featured X-Raided holding the murder weapon gun to his temple.
X-Raided has 6 years left on his sentence. He used to make cds over the phone, but starting with the Unforgiven, he was able to use real recording equipment.
