XV is back. Today, the Kansas rapper released a new mixtape, Popular Culture, via Livemixtapes. It sees him rapping atop Kendrick Lamar's "The Recipe" ("Stone Cold") and Ca$h Out's "Cashin' Out" ("Tappin' Out"). It also includes some original tracks, the likes of "Be There, Be Square" and "AaaHH! Real Monsters" alongside ScHoolBoy Q.
Grab the mixtape via Livemixtapes.com.
So what's next for the Squarian captain? The Awesome EP, which is up for preorder now via Warner. This one's kind of a big deal. "I haven't released anything for purchase since 2006 where I was independently selling albums out of my backpack," XV sats. "But even then, I've never released anything with a barcode. I wanted to create a project that brings in all the core fans and all the new fans I've gained. It's an awesome EP that is pre-gaming everybody for the debut."
