Freddie Gibbs opens with a true Gangsta Gibbs acapella and goes into his verse from “Gotta See This” featuring Young Jeezy. He ends his set with “187 Proof” which takes a few subliminals at MMG. He talks about sending “600 shots through your 600 Benz” and even tells people to “ask Pill who the realest.”
Wichita, Kansas native, XV is a prime example of shining beyond margins. He is one of the leaders in this new wave of Hip Hop, which has consistently been proving that buzzing artists are no longer confined by their residence in a secondary music market. Moreso than physical restraints, artists are also succeeding in just being themselves. The self-described “square” is from a city best known for introducing the world to the Yellow Brick Road- a fact hardly associated with Rap. He’s completed songs inspired by video games, before bars inspired by corner hugging hustlers. As the 26-year-old emcee gains even more recognition, he offers the refreshing sentiment of only being true to himself.
XV’s work ethic is impeccable, having released 16 mixtapes since 2006-at least two per year. He outworked everyone in his lane on his 2008 tape, 40 Days/40 Nights, an unfathomable collection of 80 tracks, mixing freestyles and original songs. In 2009, XV made his mark in the industry with the DJ Enuff-hosted, Everybody’s Nobody tape- it was enough to catch the ear of big city slickers and get him signed to a major deal. As we anticipate his Warner Brothers debut, The Kid With The Green Backpack in 2012, fans can rest assured that he’ll give them a treat while waiting for what he calls “the show.”
