I’ll be honest, I was holding out on XV to finish all of his March Madness EP installments before I posted this, but after hearing vol 2 nothing I heard lived up to the production work on this first compilation. Literally every track is a hit, but he didn’t bring in anyone for features; just the wordsmith himself and the instrumentals from The Awesome Sound, Childish Gambino, Big Jerm, Zuki, & Jay Beatz. I used to be a huge X to the V fan, we have a ton of his music on the site but haven’t heard from him since he dropped Everyday Life in early 2014. Fans weren’t really feeling his last project Popular Culture, but he’s definitely lived up to the quality standard this time.
