Hip Hop Mixtape: XV – “Popular Culture”

Awesome art work, awesome collection, everything awesome. XV doesn’t get a lot of love from the mainstream chumps, but his newest mixtape Popular Culture may force them to give notice. My favorite XV song to date, the Inception sampling “The Kick” is on here, as is the brand new joint featuring Schoolboy Q and B.O.B. Stream and download “Aaahh! Real Monsters” and the rest of the album below.

As for what XV’s up to next..

“Upon the release of the two projects, XV will enter self-imposed exile to begin the recording process of his debut album The Kid with the Greenback which will be helmed by Just Blaze. Speaking in a candid interview with The Source, XV revealed “I’m trying to create that classic sound which is soul based. I’m bringing him all the samples because I know he’s a genius at that. We share a lot of passions and I want to take a bunch of those awesome things and put them in my debut album.”
