XV: The Introduction

Our compadre from Kansas, XV, was able to sit down with Karen Civil for a new installment in to her, ‘The Introduction’ series.

Recently, I had a chance to sit down with Witchita, Kansas, born rapper, Donovan Johnson, better known as XV. “The kid with the green backpack”, who created a buzz strictly through his own hustle, opened up about on an array of topics including: his Kansas upbringing, his taste in music and production, how he first met DJ Enuff and future endeavors.

XV – The Kick


I am digging everything about this track. XV is great. I love the smoothness and the chill vibe this is bringing. Someone tell me why he doesn’t have a bigger fan base. Definitely adding this one to my chill playlist. Too good to pass up.

Jabee ft. XV – Beautiful Day Remix (SEVEN)

Oklahoma’s Jabee links up again with Kansas native and Warner Brothers signee, XV, for the remix to Jabee’s song “Beautiful Day”. I got to hear this the other day when Jabee played it for some of us at Caoboy x Sammiches‘ new crib and really dug it. This beat is pretty fantastic as per usual when Seven gets behind it. This is a really dope look and another great song from the homie Jabee. Check it out below.
