XV, born Donavan Johnson, first gained major attention after the release of his twelfth mixtape Everybody’s Nobody in 2009. Obsessed with comic books, action figures, web surfing, and roleplaying video games, he does not always fit the stereotype of hip/hop which is why he stands out above the rest. Packing an amazing flow and a thoughtful lyricism, he has now become one of the most popular upcoming rappers in the US, not to mention an extensive list of collaborations with Pusha T, J. Cole, Kid Cudi, Chiddy Bang, and Wiz Khalifa, among others. Dubstep producer Figure, to which we had the chance to catch up to him after Christmas for an interview (coming soon), is known for creating tracks that ooze with heavy and dark melodic undertones and while this track is no where near as dark, its slow burn bass definitely makes this a heavy remix. With the lines of dubstep and hip/hop always blurring, Figures remix of Gobstoppers documents in just a few minutes, how far both genres have come. It is fresh, heavy and completely raw.

The release coincides with Benzi & DJ E-V’s Reckless Wobbles mix, also available for free DL.
