XV – Nevermind Live @ The Knitting Factory from Bob Burgundy on Vimeo.

The Knitting Factory blew up June 12th with XV and Chiddy Bang gracing the stage, setting off a montage of good times and dope rhymes for the audience to vibe with. When the show ended, XV and Chiddy Bang met up with eager fans to sign posters and the occasional iPod handed their way. But a few scouring rap indulgers showcased their abilities as well, hoping for words of advice from an artist who himself also grew up in an area outlandish to hip-hop. “It’s nothing easy,” X to the V said. “But you have to follow what inspires you. For me, It was always Jay-Z’s blueprint and sometimes inspiration needs a little change,” the artist said in regards to his cut off of Lil Wayne’s Drop the World. His latest creation Vizzy Zone was just completed and in the process of dropping next month with production from Seven and Xaphoon Jones of Chiddy Bang. X to the V also mentioned more work with Wiz Khalifa and that him and Curren$y had just been in the studio the day before. Although the much anticipated album, The Kid with the Green Backpack has been under speculation of dropping soon, XV says, “not until next year.” He’s deeply overwhelmed with wanting to give the world the album, but his anticipation of wanting the entire world to hear it keeps it on the back burner, for now.
