XV - Cooler Than Yo’ Boyfriend
One of the Booth’s favorite newcomers, XV, has been quite the busy beaver (hey, I got tired of using the cliché “on his grind” line). Before releasing his new, concept-driven LP, The Kid With The Green Backpack, first quarter of next year, the Wichita, Kansas-born emcee will drop a 2008 wrap-up mixtape, which is set to feature a combination of unreleased material and tracks that were featured in his successful 40 Days, 40 Nights series. Straight from the cutting room floor is the Seven-produced Cooler Than Yo’ Boyfriend, an ode to every nerd who has ever attempted to steal a jock’s girlfriend. Also before the end of the year, XVizzy plans to leak a record he recorded with Ne-Yo… which we’ll feature in our audio section sooner than later.
