In the newly-released music video for his latest single "Industry Baby" featuring fellow rapper Jack Harlow, the 22-year-old Grammy winner is living it up the best he can and making the best out of a five-year prison sentence in the fictional (we wish it were real though) Montero State Prison.
All sorts of antics abound, including the aforementioned naked twerking in the showers, rocking all-pink outfits, and working out in the prison yard.
But no prison, no matter how fun-looking it is, can keep an artist like X locked away forever, and that's made obvious as X takes some inspiration from the drama film Shawshank Redemption and tunnels his way out of there. When X knocks out one of Montero State Prison's lead guards (played by out Teen Wolf alum Colton Haynes) and frees all of his fellow inmates, the best kind of chaos ensues.
"I wrote a song for us. I know sometimes you feel like it’s all downhill from here," X wrote in an emotional letter to himself earlier this week ahead of the release of "Industry Baby." "I know your sexuality has made you feel like an outcast amongst your peers. I know going from having the biggest song in the world to being trapped in your apartment is weighing heavy on you. And I know if you hear the phrase 'one hit wonder' one more time you might combust."
"But I need you to keep going. I need you to realize that you have the opportunity to be the person that you needed growing up. I need you to stop feeling sorry for yourself. And I need you to remember that the only person who has to believe in YOU is YOU."
