XV - Everybody's Nobody

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: XV
  • Track: Everybody's Nobody
  • Producer: Seven
  • Album: Everybody's Nobody Mixtape

The title of XV's forthcoming mixtape is rife with ambiguity – fortunately, the emcee has provided an explanation in the form of the project's title track; giving his take on the pursuit of fame and the consequences of earning it, XV paints a picture of an industry where Everybody's Nobody (but anyone could be somebody – maybe). Notably, the Wichita-bred emcee drops a reference to our 2008 Best of the Booth Awards, spitting, “DJBooth nominated, that's a great look/ Lost to a song with Lil Wayne that ain't have a hook.” Though XV's clearly well-acquainted with the identity crises that artists must face down on the road to success, he doesn't let it faze him; where other rappers would be bitter, he sounds mostly amused, and his conversational delivery over Seven's stop-start organ accompaniment results in a very catchy cut. The Everybody's Nobody mixtape is due out soon, and fans can look forward to XV's contribution to our exclusive freestyle series, premiering next month.
