I have to openly admit I didn't know jack about rapper XV until stumbling across this video last night. His MySpace -- which boasts over a million views -- says he's from "Smalltown, KS." I had trouble digging up bio info, but apparently he's gotten Lil Wayne to guest on a track, and this blogger thinks he's the second coming.
The local connections continue with the video for "Fall Out of the Sky," which was directed by Kyle Harbaugh, the man behind all those excellent Mac Lethal videos. I even paused the video in places to try and identify buildings and street signs. It's not KC...
XV is also apparently working with Wichita producer Michael "Seven" Summers, who has worked with Mac and Tech N9ne. He's the dude playing the upright piano in the video. He's also the guy playing Guitar Hero with XV in this fun but not very informative EPK video.
School me on XV in the comments?
