Osvaldo Partida , or Xaay as some would mention him as, was born in South Gate, California, also known as the home of Cypress Hill, and was raised in Compton, California. He has one goal in mind: should become more diverse and dedicated to his profession. He’s determined, hungry, focused. in the way he goes about making music.

After he walks off the stage when he performs, his objective is to leave people wanting to see more of him and visit him in the studio. In Compton he makes a difference in the music industry by putting in the hours of effort, dedication, and inspiration, both publicly and behind the scenes in the studio lights.
Xaay went on to remark that his passion for music will always be a driving force in his life and that his mother and father were a leading example in his life. “The game they laced me up with is unmatched to any lesson I’ve ever learned anywhere else. I appreciate yall.”
Xaay views himself as an ambitious artist who has become more of an inspiration and a go-getter to others because of his work ethic and determination. Explaining that his family ties are extremely meaningful to him. “My daughter. Hands down. I want to make sure by the time she figures out who she is and what she wants to do in life that I have a platform to be able to elevate her. Also the music. It’s a type of therapy for me. Without music my days get kind of rocky so when I’m head down working on something it just makes everything easier.”
He adds that he has been on a long journey since he was 17 years old. Xaay explains he went to a rehab, mental home, and was homeless plenty of times. He mentions he had a kid at 20, lost his share of friends at the time, and the only thing that’s kept him rolling was God, Music and Weed. Xaay explains that whenever he was on the wrong path, God made sure to send signs.
Although Xaay is entirely focused on perfecting the art of his work, his trials have encouraged him to strive for even greater accomplishment. “When it seems like it’s time to give up and you’re on your last 3%. Don’t stop because that’s when everything starts moving. You’ve proved to God and the Universe you’re deserving and you really want whatever you’re going after. Affirmations are real but you just can’t ask. You got to put the work in for it.
