XV - Lift the Game

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: XV
Producer:
Hit-Boy & Chase N. Cashe
Album:
30 Minute Layover (Mixtape)

Most artists put out a few songs in between albums to let everyone know that they still “got it” and maintain their place in the spotlight (“Hey! You guys! It’s me! Remember?”).  Booth favorite XV isn’t most artists. Vizzy’s somehow managed to drop an entire mixtape for his fans while they wait for his debut album (much appreciated). The first leak from the project is Lift the Game, a track that does exactly what the title implies by banging out an insanely energetic freestyle over Hit-Boy & Chase N. Cache’s epic Drop the World beat. Here the Wichitonian emcee keeps Lil Wayne’s slower rhyme pattern from the original but makes the beat completely his own through another round of the trademark wordplay that made him the success he is today: “Rocket packs are fully charged/ the moon and stars that will be ours/ home is where you find your heart/ and at this point I’m up on Mars.” No need to ask if you liked this one, just be sure to check XV’s 30 Minute Layover Mixtape, due out Friday.
