XV’s “Vizzy Zone” mixtape has finally dropped.

XV at Michigan State

Mann one of the reasons I love hiphop….amazing free music.  XV has released his newest mixtape titled Vizzy Zone hosted by DJ Ill Will and DJ Rockstar.  I’ve been waitin on this mixtape for months now and can’t wait to play it.  Sadly,  have to be up in 5 hours, but I felt the need to bring his music too you.  Can’t wait to hear it fully tomorrow.

If you haven’t heard of XV, he opened for Kid Cudi at the MSU show and killlllllled it.  I did a review of that show HERE, which he was a fan of (peep the cheap plug below).  He’s from Kansas City and many of the tracks were produced by the same people from his hometown, like Seven, that helped him get to his status now.  He was recently signed too, so congrats to him.  His last two mixtapes, Everybody’s Nobody and 30 minute layover, were praised by many, so I expect this one to be just as good.  His style is sort of Lupe Fiasco voice-ish, but Big Sean’s wordplay, but he keeps it real and has many pop culture and video game metaphors and if you grew up in the 90s like I did, you’ll appreciate every one of them.


The album features favorites like Talib Kweli, Chiddy Bang, and Colin Munroe.  Be on the look out for his album The Kid With The Green Backpack and his music video Mirror’s Edge which should be releasing soon.  (The remix features GLC, the homey Mike Posner, and the legendary Bun B)

I'll use this everytime I can. haha.

DKA out!

P.S.  I’m told by sources that if you’re going to the Big Sean show at MSU tomorrow (today thursday), then you can probably expect an appearance from Mike Posner.  Mannn, sometimes I wish I was back in East Lansing…but Miami will have to do.
