Awesome, XV Swervin Through the US on 2012 Tour
XV first garnered some recognition beyond his home state of Kansas in 2009 with the release of the mixtape Everybody’s Nobody (follow the link to scoop it up for free on DatPiff). Unfortunately, it took me about a year to jump onto the XV game with his mixtape Vizzy Zone and his show in NYC opening for Chiddy Bang along with Donnis.
He has been working on his first true studio album “The Kid With The Green Backpack” after signing with Warner Bros back in 2010, but with his prolific mixtape past, there is no shortage of material for him to rock the stage with. If you aren’t sold on XV yet, I have included some of his best stuff at the bottom of this post to get you up to speed.

Although we don’t cover rap as much as I would like on this blog, it isn’t the first time we have looked at a major rap artist before their first major album has dropped. Pre-Rolling Papers we looked at the imminent rise of Wiz Khalifa and now Young Khalifa’s concerts are some of our most popular. I don’t expect XV to explode with a Black and Yellow type hit that Wiz did, but I do expect more mass recognition and continued proliferation in the rap scene.
Listen to XV
