Review: X-Raided – Deadly Game

Review: X-Raided – Deadly Game

Now the Deadly Game album was put together and produced by William Larcell Charles (LA Chill) in 2002 for the distribution label JLM Entertainment from Sacramento, California. Deadly Game is not a bootleg despite what X-Raided fans may think. The Deadly Game is a legit X-Raided album. It was released on the JLM Entertainment label and Trumptz Recordz in 2002 on CD that was later distributed by Koch Records (now E1) in 2008.

William Larcell Charles (LA Chill) is the same man who produced the Xorcist album in 1995. He produced and wrote some of X-Raided’s albums. He did not get the credit he lawfully deserved during his time at Black Market Records and from JLM Entertainment. This project is an album that he wanted to get done in order to get X-Raided’s name out there.

Reportedly as advertised by the album cover, Deadly Game came in limited edition. As reported and advertised by the album cover, his work is his life. And maybe even his death! “His Work Is His Life, And Maybe His Death.” There are also excerpts and clips of news broadcasts, news reports, and interviews included on this album.

Most of the songs from this album are remixes of tracks from other albums such as Unforgiven, X-Ology, and Speak Of Da Devil. Some fans argue such remixes aren’t as good as the originals. That’s why X-Raided fans slept on this album and regarded Deadly Game as a bootleg. None of the tracks from Vengeance Is Mine were included in Deadly Game however.

Deadly Game is filled with raw uncut material. Take notice of such anger his lurid lyrics as this album has person anger that separates Deadly Game album from all his other albums. Deadly Game is filled with 15 tracks of pure heat as Deadly Game proves to be an underground hit! Deadly Game is a must have for any X-Raided fan!

The sound quality is pretty bad and low-tech because Deadly Game was recorded when X-Raided was in solitary confinement at Salinas Valley State Prison in Soledad, California. Most of the Deadly Game album was recorded under the noses of CDC officers. X-Raided managed to release another album from behind bars during his incarceration which intrigued the eyes of controversy baffling administrators as to how this breach of security occurred.

You won’t find good production on Deadly Game. So don’t expect his voice to be clear as it was on Unforgiven and Vengeance Is Mine. All of these tracks are all original and the vocals untouched by studio technology. As usual the samples are crazy.

Freedom of Speech is after Enter My Grave. A news report in audio format from news channel KCRA 3 (NBC) that aired in 1992 is played. Joe Debbs who is part of AGANG (A Guard Against Narcotics Gangs) says he would like to see the record burn. (The Psycho Active album that Joe is referring to burn.) Joe Debbs believes X-Raided should not receive any notoriety or reap any benefits. But he believes the Psycho Active album should be released because Freedom Of Speech listed under the First Amendment in the United States Constitution is too important. Joe Debbs says Freedom Of Speech is too important for the Psycho Active album not to be released.

The news report in audio format is from news channel KCRA 3 (NBC) that aired it in 1992 was about the murder of Patricia Harris that had occurred on March 15, 1992 for which X-Raided supposedly committed in a home invasion gone wrong. Garden Blocc Crips from 24th Street kicked in the door of Patricia Harris’ home looking for members of the Meadowview Bloods that murdered Jerome McCoy (J-Dogg) in 1991. The shooting was in retaliation of the death of Jerome McCoy (J-Dogg). That news report was also used in the news magazine “To Be Somebody” on news channel KCRA 3 (NBC).

A live news report from Live News Report turns from a live news report into an interview with X-Raided. This live news report aired on news channel KCRA 3 (NBC) in 1995 right around the time that his sophomore album Xorcist came out. News reporter Sam Shane says that the murder of Patricia Harris mirrored and reflected lyrics from a song called Still Shooting on the 1992 Psycho Active album.

X-Raided says that the news media and Municipal Court (government) took that song way out of context. He wrote that song from being on crack rock (cocaine) and what crack rock does to a family. He wrote that song from himself being on crack rock. The tracks news reporter Sam Shane is referring to are The Murder and Still Shooting.

Deadly Game was a track that the lyrically gifted X-Raided co-authored and wrote for C-Bo in 1998 while they were both locked up at Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy, California. This is the Deadly Game song on his 1998 Til My Casket Drops album that got C-Bo incarcerated for violating his parole. Only this version is a lot different from the version on the 1998 Til My Casket Drops album. Notice the echoes in the vocals and the studio enhanced voice. The vocals have a reverb to them.

Deadly Game got C-Bo convicted for violating his parole by writing songs that promoted criminal activity and violence. Deadly Game promoted and advocated criminal behavior such as violence against law enforcement officers, public officials, and parole agents.

X-Raided never was no choirboy. (He never was a goody two-shoes in other words.) He has a gang load of prior convictions. That’s why law enforcement be trippin’. Trying to give a young black man 35 years to life when X-Raided hasn’t anything wrong. He has no information to offer the officer. X got confrontational with the officer by turning into a smart mouth. That’s where the trouble starts. The officer now puts his thumbprint in a high tech computer. His name came back with a warrant. They say X-Raided robbed a liquor store in a strong armed robbery. Police know when, where, and how. It’s foul. He admits that. Now they have X-Raided detained in custody downtown where police officers are performing an anal cavity search on him.

The DA had a proposition during the pre-trial conference. (The DA had already came up with a proposition before hand.) DA said “You’re losing in you trial. You’ll get 38 years with and an ”L” on top.” The DA (District Attorney) gave him 5 years with most of the charges dropped. It’s sad. X admits that. Sentence him to 5 years in prison and 2 years he has to bring in order to be eligible for parole.

The chorus is where the lyrically gifted X-Raided advocates violence against law enforcement officers, public officials, and parole agents. Deadly Game promoted criminal behavior and criminal activity.

Notice the personal anger in these violent lyrics against the government. It’s a deadly game of baseball with the court and government. The government has it against black people. X wants to kill government officials in Deadly Game.

Right now, X-Raided is fresh out of prison unrehabilitated. Raided doing hella good and his PO (parole officer) hates it. This parole officer is a dyke lesbian bitch. She can’t wait to violate X for some petty ass shit. (Obviously this parole officer has it out for him.)

At this point in the track, X-Raided is filling several applications for jobs as he is seeking employment. Minimum wage does not cover living expenses. Inevitably, X goes back to his old ways. It’s time for him to start having things his way. We are now at the club with X-Raided. X now has his Coupe painted candy apple green. The clear coat sprayed on thickly.

At this point in the track, X goes back to his old ways as he is sick and tired of going through all this shit. X-Raided has got two strikes right now as we speak. X is putting his belongings on Greyhound Bus #22 that is headed in the direction to another state. Him and his crew.

X-Raided calls out former California Governor Pete Wilson in Deadly Game. With Governor Pete Wilson in office you get no parole date. A petty crime with a prior conviction will buy your fate. Look how he capitalized his position into political office off the death of Polly Klass. Look how he capitalized off the death of Polly Klass. Governor Pete Wilson used her death and the family’s name to gain more votes and political fame.

X-Raided – Deadly Game uses and incorporated samples from Tom Tom Club – Genius of Love, Grandmaster Flash – The Message, C-Bo – Deadly Game, and Fuckin Wit A Psycho from the 1992 Psycho Active album of X’s. All of which you hear in the chorus. The beats sample Tom Tom Club – Genius of Love and Grandmaster Flash – The Message.

X-Raided cites the lyrics to C-Bo – Deadly Game in the ending verse of Nefarious on the Deadly Game album. Look at the lyrics.:

[Ending Verse]
1-8-7 on the DA
He ain’t tryin to give a young black nigga no leeway
Yes, yes y’all 1-8-7 on the whole court room motherfuck them all
1-8-7 on the DA
He ain’t tryin to give a young motherfucker no leeway
Yes, yes y’all 1-8-7 on the whole court room motherfuck them all

X-Raided turns trial by jury into ‘trial by fury’ on the track Trial By Fury. Trial By Fury was from his 2000 Speak Of Da Devil album. This version of Trial By Fury is a more spooky horrorcore remix that will surely leave a memorable impact on your mind. Notice how spooky the bass is.

You live by the sword and you die by it. The streets got a code of silence and we survive by. But some of you got the game crossed. We got our own set of laws in the land of the lost. We hold court like the Wild West by holding gun fights to the test. May the best person win! It’s to the death. People fight to the death in the land of the lost. You can’t slip because if you do, you’re through.

But some of you call the cops when it gets hectic. Snitching on someone when they suspected. Telling law enforcement everything you know/knew. Now you’re marked for death anywhere you go. So it’s not safe to show your in the neighborhood/in the ghetto. Your days are numbered. You can’t slip because if you do, you’re through. It’s just another unsolved mystery for homicide to pursue.

They find bodies buttnaked on the South Side of Sacramento, California. Bodies full of holes. Fuck 911. Don’t run when the cops come. Get a gun and drop one. Get a gun and kill someone. X-Raided would rather be carried by six than judged by twelve. White folks trying to put X-Raided in a cell. So let the streets be the prosecutor, judge, and jury. Let him have a trial by fury. Because X-Raided had it up to here with these man made laws. America never truly cared about black people. America never truly cared about poor people. Let the streets be the prosecutor, judge and jury. Let him have a trial by fury.

You can say what you want to say. But every dog has his day. So you gonna pay. You can’t run and can’t hide. Ain’t nowhere to go. Stand strong when it gets rough. People catch rounds when they switch up. We mash on you when you’re wrong.

X-Raided calls out Mr. Doctor in Trial By Fury for being a snitch in which X-Raided blatantly disses Mr. Doctor. Take notice of the Mr. Doctor diss. Mr. Doctor was a former artist who was signed to Black Market Records from 1994 to 2002.

It’s from here into the 3rd verse. Look at the lyrics:

If you the homie
Then you know we mash on you when you wrong
Stand strong when it gets rough
Fuck breakin’ down
Niggas catch rounds when they switch up
You weak belly bitch, softer than a jellyfish
Half heart, half money now, don’t be actin’ funny style
Now tell me this, where you learn the game from?
And which cartoon did you get your name from?
Cause you a character like Robin Givens
Like Eastwood in the neighborhood, you “Unforgiven”
In 95′ you was “Settripin’ Bloccstyle”
But I heard you be kickin’ it with cops now
What you did in the dark came to day
You can play now, but later on you gotta pay nigga

[Chorus:]
They find bodies butt naked on the south side
On his back full of holes with his mouth wide
And fuck 911, don’t run when the cops come
Get ya gun and drop one
I’d rather be carried by six, then judged by twelve
White folks trying to put me in a cell
So let the streets be the prosecutor, judge and jury
Let me have a trial by fury
Cause I done had it up to here with these man made laws
America ain’t ever gave a fuck about y’all
Let the streets be the prosecutor, judge and jury
Let me have a trial by fury

[Verse 3:]
I heard you said fuck X-Raided
Cause I rolled on ya hood and you niggas hate it
You took one of mine, so I took one of yours
What y’all fools come to court testifyin’ for?
We was supposed to hold court in them street blocks
But when it got hard, niggas called the ceeznops
Instead of ridin’ you provided all the info
To put it simple nigga you’s a heeznoe
When I first hit the yard, you had a mean mug
It was me, T-Tone, and D-Dubb
It throwed down, so you tried to say it was cool
But it ain’t never gonna be cool, fuck y’all fools
Baby I’m set trippin cause you made me
It’s the game of life, you don’t wanna play me
You ain’t crazy, but maybe you a little slow
Play now, pay later nigga

[Chorus:]
They find bodies butt naked on the south side
On his back full of holes with his mouth wide
And fuck 911, don’t run when the cops come
Get ya gun and drop one
I’d rather be carried by six, then judged by twelve
White folks trying to put me in a cell
So let the streets be the prosecutor, judge and jury
Let me have a trial by fury
Cause I done had it up to here with these man made laws
America ain’t ever gave a fuck about y’all
Let the streets be the prosecutor, judge and jury
Let me have a trial by fury
Yea

Notice the personal anger in these violent lyrics. Such lyrics are truly genius in the eyes of X-Raided. X-Raided knows hectic lyrics as he calls out snitches from all angles. X-Raided calls out the prosecutor, judge, and jury because they never truly cared about poor people. Why are folks trying to put X-Raided in a cell?

Hell Raiser is a slightly less polished version of a track by the same name from the 2000 Speak Of Da Devil album. Only this version of Hell Raiser features Young Droop and Maniac whereas the original version of Hell Raiser X-Raided did solo.

This version of Hell Raiser has a more horrorcore with an eerie vibe that can be considered to be ultra spooky. The processed percussion is heavy hitting leaving a memorable impact on your mind. X-Raided’s vocals have an echo here. Overall Hell Raiser will leave a memorable impact on your mind!

Cash was on X’s mind at an early age as he was growing up too fast by looking out for ways to stay paid. God bless the child that has his own as he was told. So every single day the dope was sold. X-Raided never liked school because this shit was never real for him. Never stood still long enough to have stability. Nor did he never took advantage of his athletic abilities. The only way up out the ghetto for a black man is to either play a sport or know how to sing, rap, or dance.

The only other option is to join a gang or sell narcotics. Hanging out with the other high rollers trying to get your pockets swoll. Looking at the competition. The mission is to get rich as quick as possible and turn your cash legit, but the first you make could be your last. You’ll always have the jackers and crackers out to bust your ass. So don’t be slipping. Take the wrong move and get swept off your feet.

Living the life styles of the rich and famous. He keeps his hands clean staying blameless. It’s scandalous but X is shameless. All X wants to do is stack the cream. Ever since X-Raided was little that was his dream. He is trying to get his pockets swoll.

His pants been sagging ever since he was a seventh grader with a pocket full of rocks and a Sky pager. X had dreams of coming up major. X-Raided turned out to be nothing but a little ass hell raiser.

In this verse of Hell Raiser, X-Raided fucked around and caught his homegirl ovulating. That threw a cold twist on the whole situation. Now he has to figure out a way to break the Genius World Record for making cash. He has a baby in his business. X called up the ese and went down to Stockton for some illegal activity. (Stockton, California is a predominantly a Hispanic city. So it would definitely make logical sense for the eses to hang out there.) Throw it on the scale. 1,000 grams is what it weighs. Getting 10 g’s ($10,000 USD) because he shows him love.

These words are spoken in the Spanish language. “Mucho gracias senior, Adios.” Translate these words into English and the result is: “Thank you very much, sir.”

And then he’s up out the door. It’s back to Sacramento as it’s time to make the paper stack. X-Raided is standing in the kitchen with palms itching cooking up the chicken. 11-3-51 narcotic 85% pure product. Let it rock up. His stock is up a grip. $600 bucks a zip.

X somehow fucked up and slipped. Of course the Taskforce dipped by catching X-Raided with a quarter pound of “D”. In court he got a deal or in this case a reduced sentence for 3 years as he entered a guilty plead. Eventually X-Raided is in the penitentiary at San Quentin. 32 months in the penitentiary he has to do. Then he’ll be back on the streets with his crew.

At this point, X is fresh out the pen and once again on the loose. His lady had his baby and she’s already 2. Back in the hood and ain’t a damn thang changed. All the same people struggling trying to survive in the game. X-Raided needs his cash even if he has to ride or die.

His pants been sagging ever since he was a 7th grader with a pocket full of rocks and a Sky pager. X had dreams of coming up major. X-Raided turned out to be nothing but a little ass hell raiser.

Stockton rapper Maniac stands out as being the most aggressive rapper on the Deadly Game album. His versatile style of rapping is what makes him aggressive. His style of rap is almost somewhat similar Sacramento rapper Luni Corleone. He has all this anger and aggression stored up overall.

He calls out Ced Singleton of Black Market Records. He has all this anger and aggression stored up towards Ced Singleton. For instance, take a look at the verses below.:

So fuck you, Ced
you playa hata

The track X-Raided is a remix of Nefarious from the Speak Of Da Devil album. This track X-Raided is packaged as a bonus track that turns out to be an exact duplicate of Nefarious from the Speak Of Da Devil album. The only differences are the musical instruments used and the beats were produced by LA Chill instead of Ced Singleton or KG. An upright guitar was used in the remix instead of the violin selection that was used in the original version. Now that is just crazy. The track is X-Raided (Bonus Track).

In this track, X-Raided introduces himself as Nefarious on X-Raided (Bonus Track) before the first verse as an introductory sentence. The birth of Nefarious was created as an alias in 2000 for the Speak Of Da Devil album from Black Market Records for obvious reasons. (The DA said so. The DA said that X was “nefarious for his crimes.)

Check the lyrics from these lines:
X-Raided Locc back in the house
We gonna introduce you to a nigga I know pretty well
His name is Nefarious

It’s the same old shit everywhere we look. Death and destruction. Killing over nothing. X knows he made a contribution, but in the ghetto ain’t no motherfucking constitution. Everyone be shooting everything that don’t look right. And if you got an attitude you’ll catch a ghetto flight. The jaws of life can’t save you when we crush you.

X can’t trust you because the homie told me you a buster. Motherfuckers hate to see one having things. You think X is joking? I don’t see anybody laughing, kid. X-Raided wants to go AWOL like a prison break or a prison riot. And if a guard try’s to stop me then that’s a mistake. He’ll brake you off something serious. It used to be X-Raided and now it’s Nefarious. It’s very rough. (Nefarious is something serious.)

X-Raided is Nefarious. The DA (District Attorney) said so. The DA told the jury “He’s crazy! You can’t let him go.” Attorney At Law Dan Ron Castro had his back to a certain extent, but they still didn’t find X-Raided innocent. Obviously he was found guilty as charged.

Don’t repent now. Change your ways because you went to jail. You say you’re silent but motherfucker how can X tell? X ain’t following no rules. He’s a rebel y’all. X-Raided didn’t come to the pen and stop breaking laws. X smoke weed with the homie when he first get in. And in the visiting booth, his mocha gave him head. In the county jail he had a walkman and tape. Women playing with their vaginas in the visiting tank. Rubbing on that clitoris while he’s sitting there staring like a motherfucker thinking bout to bust a nut. Thinking about the rough shit. In the pen it’s kinda hard to keep your girl happy.

It’s the morning after in jail. X-Raided is sitting in his cell. The jury found X-Raided guilty. No tears in his eyes. It’s no surprise. It was anticipation. The media had X-Raided guilty with no deliberation. Time to tell the story better than anyone ever could. X-Raided is speaking nothing but the solid truth.

X-Raided cites the lyrics to Deadly Game in the ending verse of Nefarious on the Deadly Game album. Look at the lyrics:

[Ending Verse]
1-8-7 on the DA
He ain’t tryin to give a young black nigga no leeway
Yes, yes y’all 1-8-7 on the whole court room motherfuck them all
1-8-7 on the DA
He ain’t tryin to give a young motherfucker no leeway
Yes, yes y’all 1-8-7 on the whole court room motherfuck them all

X-Raided gets autobiographical on Momma’s Pride and Joy. Momma’s Pride and Joy was from Unforgiven. Momma’s Pride and Joy is an autobiographical and sentimental track. This version of Momma’s Pride and Joy is unmastered rough draft copy of Momma’s Pride and Joy hence the echoes in both the vocals and background. Notice the enhanced voice.

It’s been on every day since they cut the umbilical cord. X been on a mission since the circumcision destined to be hardcore. His birth date is July 30, 1974. The same years the Steelers whipped on Minnesota in football. Since the moment he was born X-Raided destined to be a hardcore thug. Hardcore is what X-Raided wanted to be. X-Raided wanted to be crazy.

His sister took care of him because she was his older sister. His big sister is older than him by 4 years. She fed him when he was hungry and dried up all his tears. His older sister had to be a woman at 16 with no assistance from anyone.

He started off in a very nurturing environment in the beginning. (It wasn’t so bad in the beginning.) 15 years later in 1989 he became X-Raided. His mother tried to steer him onto the right path but he ignored her. It’s clear X gave up on life at a very early age. His childhood was non existent. His childhood was non existent as he himself claims. Gangsterism is hereditary to him.

X-Raided wished his life didn’t turn out the way it had. It’s too late for all that “coulda shoulda woulda” mess. He only wanted to be a man but never knew how. Only if X knew then what he knows now it would be a different story.

X-Raided describes prison life during his incarceration on Incarcerated. Incarcerated was a track on the Speak Of Da Devil album. It was recorded in 2000 for his Speak Of Da Devil album that was synonymously released as Nefarious – Speak Of Da Devil album for Black Market Records. It was recorded when he was in solitary confinement. The song also appeared on the Ignition album in 2007.

X-Raided takes shit day by day while incarcerated in prison. California trying to send his ass to Pelican Bay State Prison. Pelican Bay is one of the toughest, hardest prisons in the state of California. X had a story to tell and he told it. X had a song to sing and he sung. And he got time. X-Raided got railroaded like Amtrak by the court.

Almost nobody had his damn back. X had all the odds against him to begin with anyway from the beginning. Murder in the first degree with premeditated was the crime X was charged with. They (DA and court) thought it was necessary. This shit is fucked up! He is incarcerated.

He is trying to keep his head up. Living the motto of do or die. X got all the odds against him. Somebody tell us why. X-Raided is sitting in the penitentiary trying to survive.

X-Raided is Nefarious. The DA (District Attorney) said so. The DA told the jury “He’s crazy! You can’t let him go.” Attorney At Law Dan Castro had his back to a certain extent, but they still didn’t find X-Raided innocent. Obviously he was found guilty as charged. (These lines would later included in the Nefarious track.)

Them 12 white folks trying to give X-Raided all day on his case. (Them 12 white folks are who represent the jury that are present in the jury.) The DA gave X-Raided 31 years to life in the penitentiary for his sentence.

His former attorney Pete Harned got caught with child pornography. He was a pedophile. If that was all, it didn’t bother him, but Pete got caught with child pornography. He was nothing but a pedophile. This shit is fucked up. X was incarcerated.

Stop Listen! is the Misanthropy track only this version of Misanthropy is slightly remixed with different verses. Misanthropy is from the Unforgiven album. This version of Misanthropy is more eerie than the original. The treble has been reduced to lower level than its normal standard.

X-Raided gives it to us old school style on Misanthropy. No intros. No shout outs. Nothin’ but straight lyrics! If you are in your car buckle up! No studio gangsta stories or tall tales full of fiction. It’s time to elevate the game. Stop Listen! What’s that sound? It’s goin’ down. X is causin’ casualties like MAS*H.

We’ve been brainwashed as unconscious prisoners ever since we left the boat. Us unconscious prisoners have been brainwashed with subliminal messages from artists and bands to reject this shit. Record companies try to poison our mind in order to indoctrinate us for the police state big government has planned for us. But they as the government can’t hide the truth no matter what they try to do.

Use Yo Nina is a remix of the original Use Yo Nina for the 2000 Speak Of Da Devil album. The percussion’s tempo is about the same as the original of Use Yo Nina from the 2000 Speak Of Da Devil album. Use Yo Nina is gangsta rap at its finest! Use Yo Nina was recorded in 1998 and produced by LA Chill. Use Yo Nina is also known as Get Some Heat.

On Use Yo Nina, X-Raided explains to us in rap why it is necessary to have a nina at all times. He glorified violence, death, murder and mayhem with no answers for solutions to the problems. It’s all gun talk. The track was a cautionary tale to the homies from the hood. This was to the homies from the hood regardless of location.

This version of Use Yo Nina is super dope because Da Misses is featured on this one! Now Da Misses really stands out on this track noticeably. Da Misses is featured on this one! Da Misses unleashes and relents verses that are on fire! Da Misses verses are extra as this version of Use Yo Nina is the extended version. Her verses were exclusive to this version of Use Yo Nina as they can only be heard on this version and nowhere else. Use Yo Nina is both gangsta rap and 90s rap at its finest!

These few lines at the very beginning are exclusive only to this version of Use Yo Nina and cannot be heard on any other version of Use Yo Nina or anywhere else.

nigga
you can’t bring a motherfuckin’ spoon to a sword fight
get yourself some heat
geah

When you hop out your car you need to grab your nine millimeter to drop some hot blunts. Hollow point your Pusley. Pop to drop one. X don’t got them blanks. He’s got them hollow bullet tips to have your brain hanging out when a nine millimeter kicks. X is a killa type nigga need to strap the blast so quick. You know the kind of strap that hits you.

X-Raided doesn’t need no Terminator hunting him like Sarah Connors. (X-Raided makes a reference and cultural connection to the Terminator move which Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton starred in.)

So when its time to ride he loads up the nine to do the honors. He’s killing off all substitutes because we ain’t in the same game. After all, we’re all in the same gang in this game called life. He uses that nina you call it nine but it’s the same thing. He is not a cat. He does not have nine lives, but he has got his homies them four niggas from the Florin Gardens (Garden Blocc) from Sacramento, California, US.

And when they come they ain’t gonna bring no deuce deuce four 9 millimeter packing motherfuckers yelling “Shoot!”. Somebody gonna be slippin and shot dead shitting in their draws. Ain’t his business, fool. It’s yours. You wasn’t cryin when you shot X with your deuce deuce. X didn’t die. So know its time to pay the piper fool. It’s a personal vendetta. Yeah X has a grudge. We hold court the streets like the Wild West and X is the motherfucking judge. He sentences you to jail with no bail. County jail is hell.

To the niggas from the hood, better use your nina cause that deuce deuce ain’t no good. Listen to the nine millimeter go BANG!

They call him X-Raided Loc and you better remember this. He keeps a gage with him 24/7 around the clock. His nine is his main firearm used for protection. And its nothing in your hand every time you blast it. One day its gonna jam up and blow up in your face. That nigga just shooting. It’s nice to get away. If you out to do some dirt, pack a nina (9 millimeter) because there ain’t no second in this game we call life. The Southside of Sacramento, California is nothing nice economically.

It’s October and Halloween just past. Fools are kicking down doors wearing X-man masks. Ain’t no trick-or-treat. So what you gonna do? Only strap in the house is a deuce deuce. You made that same movement shot him in his chest.

Your little pea shooter couldn’t fuck with his vest. The nigga shot you back you damn there died. You fell to the ground tears coming to your eyes with a hot sensation burnin in your stomach. Now you’re laying on your back choking your own vomit. Them niggas took your safe, money, dope, drugs, guns, and all your jewelry.

To the niggas from the hood, better use your nina cause that deuce deuce ain’t no good. (This is to the homies from the hood.) Niggaz be shooting everything that don’t look right. And if you got an attitude you’ll catch a ghetto flight. The jaws of life can’t save you when we crush you. X can’t trust you because the homie told me you a buster. Motherfuckers hate to see one having things.

X-Raided had to have a nina in the 90’s because fools were stressing then. It could be a code tops or rugger n’ Smith n’ Wessin. As long as it’s a .911 holding 16 bullets in the clip we cool. But if you pack in it with anything less, then that is necessarily good thinking. You slippin fool.

So you got to have an artillery to take a motherfucker down. A .44 caliber gun will put your ass through the back door an end out on the channel three 10 o’clock news.

His tech be spraying up a niggas sack. His tech could be a nine too. Or X could go old school on you motherfuckers with a 9 uzi. You know X can’t be choosy with his chrome. Cause when we fuckin on blast with the first thing X gets his hands on. That could be one of those little .02 shot Dillinger’s.

Cock it back and blast to put two little holes in a nigga. Better give X time to settle down to go get the homies to come back with some of that shit. They are known for tearing up you town. Spray the hood up to get ghosts like Beetlejuice. And X didn’t use no .22. Geah.

Heated was a track that was included on the 2008 edition of the Deadly Game album that also went under the name True Colors. Heated was a track that was included on the 2002 edition of the Deadly Game as well.

In retrospect and in terms of similarities, Heated is very similar to My Two 9’s from the 2001 Heated compilation. The music and beats are similar to each other. It’s mainly the beats that are similar to each other.

Heated (True Colors) is a diss rap aimed at Mr. Doctor. It is also aimed at wanna-be gangsters, followers, scammers, and foot soldiers. And people who live off the Garden Blocc name but don’t put in work or do dirt. X-Raided lets it be known to the homies in Sacramento on this track by calling people out. He lets the homies know what really goes on. It’s a slapper!

In this track X-Raided takes jabs at former Sacramento rapper Mr. Doctor for switching his rap style from the Settripin’ Bloccstyle album to the Doc Holliday album. X-Raided calls Mr. Doctor for being a snitch by being an informant to Sacramento PD by ratting on homies from the 29th Street Garden Block Crips set.

For example, Mr. Doctor ratted out Big Dan for a murder he committed. Doc told Sacramento PD Big Dan was responsible for a murder that happened to a man from another gang. What ended up happening was that Big Dan served prison time. Doc got less prison time for his sentence. This led the Garden Blocc Crips to distrust and despise Mr. Doctor. He is no longer affiliated with the set as a result.

There is a reason X-Raided no longer associates himself with Mr. Doctor, Here are examples of verse below explaining why.

I see your true colors shinin’ through
I see your true colors
That’s why I don’t fuck with you
So don’t play the role
We all ready know you’s a hoe

stay in check and give me my proper respect
and that can go to the doctor if he wanna see the X

In the middle of the track is where X gets up in your ass like a hemorrhoid. He’s got niggaz paranoid. Him and Mr. Doctor used to drink 40 oz’s and get high all night. They were cool when they were loc’s. However that was until Mr. Doctor turned his back on X-Raided over some misinformation. That’s when shit got sour. X has love for the BG’s.

X-Raided calls out wanna-be gangsters and foot soldiers. That ain’t did shit in the game. Living off the fame of the Garden Blocc name. They never did dirt or put in work but they be talking to their G’s about macking bitches and slanging keys. All they did was get in the way live off of the real gangster’s success.

X-Raided lets it be known on this track by calling people out. He lets the homies know what really goes on. Recognize who your folks and friends are. Because when shit gets rough only the tough stand close. X-Raided be pulling hoe cards.

X-Raided calls out wanna-be gangsters, followers, scammers, and foot soldiers on the verse below. Here are some examples.

I see your true colors shinin’ through
I see your true colors
That’s why I don’t fuck with you
So don’t play the role
We all ready know you’s a hoe

I see your true colors shinin’ through
I see your true colors
That’s why I don’t fuck with you

living off the fame of the Garden Blocc name
but they never did dirt or put in work
but they be talkin to their G’s
about macking bitches and slanging keys

look in the mirror
you won’t see no gangster staring back

you motherfuckers don’t even know how to load a 9
you seen a homie do some dirt and
wrote a rhyme
about being a killa
saying you’re a loc
but never gang banged

Attack Yo Bitch is a remix of Macaframa from the 1999 Unforgiven album. It is only the lyrics that are the same. Of course with the exception of a few additional verses at the end. However that is the only difference in terms of lyrics.

Attack Yo Bizatch by X-Raided sampled Tom Tom Club – Genius of Love which it heavily relies on. The percussion’s tempo is about the same as the original version of Macaframa from the 1999 Unforgiven album. Only the treble is slightly reduced. Using an 80s pop song for a rap track written in 1999 was probably not the best idea since Check Yo Bizatch sounded wack. Attack Yo Bitch was also known as Check Yo Bizatch.

Ready For War is an all out, on fire lyrical freestyle by X-Raided! The lyrically gifted X-Raided goes all out on the freestyle tip for the gruesome Ready For War track. Ready For War is fire! Of course, Ready For War was Decapitation from the Speak Of Da Devil album. LA Chill produced the beats with KG.

As for the two instrumentals…

Enter My Grave is an instrumental introduction with a spooky horrorcore vibe. Duration for Enter My Grave is 1:11. Percussion instruments used are sampled from a processed drum kit such as an SP 1200 for instance. The volume gets loud quickly. The bass also relents a spooky vibe.

Death At Your Door is an instrumental similar to how Enter My Grave is an instrumental introduction. Death At Your Door, too, has a spooky horrorcore vibe. The presence of bass is not as heavy as it was on Enter My Grave. The instrumentals of Enter My Grave and Death At Your Door were put together and produced by William Charles (LA Chill) in 2001.

*Barcode for the 2002 edition of Deadly Game is 697417123424 with the original description abstract and barcode for the 2008 edition of Deadly Game is 697417505022 which has a black insert. Both editions come with a different description.

*[The Parental Advisory stickers are different for each addition. The 2002 edition of Deadly Game has a purple Parental Advisory sticker while the 2008 edition of Deadly Game has standard black & white Parental Advisory sticker.]

*[2008 edition of Deadly Game has the Heated track known also as True Colors which did appear on the original 2002 pressing. The description from the 2002 edition of Deadly Game much different from the description listed on the 2008 edition of Deadly Game.]

*[X-Raided is in his same garb from the photoshoot for The Unforgiven album from 1999.]

I rate this album 4/5****!
