XV... Just Killin it "Learn to Fly"

Over the years many artists have come and gone, making consistency the number one attribute I look for in new musicians. The one rapper that has yet to disappoint the SG music team is XV. "Learn to Fly" is the first leaked single from his EP L7 which is slated for release in 2012. The track features an electro influenced beat that we are used to from Xv and a pretty sick hook sung by Betty Trouble, (who seems like a good time). XV's popularity is clearly growing as he has made a big stir on the short list for XXL mag's "Freshmen" list for 2012. Although this would be a huge honour for the kid, I just hope it doesn't ruin the individual sound that we've been getting from Mr.Vizzy for the past year. XV is just so unique to me, as he is able to make some serious heart felt tracks like "The Kick" but then comes at us with absolute party jams like "foreign exchange student". The kid's mad talented and I will be patiently waiting for the L7 EP, until then here ya go... enjoy
