With his out-of-this-world flow, it’s no wonder emcee XV, born Donavan Johnson, claims to be from the fictional planet of Squaria. On the heels of his Lil’ Wayne-assisted Booth feature, U Got It, is the new song, Everything is Cool. Found on A Square in the Circle, the latest volume of his Coolniverse mixtape series which dropped earlier this month, the rapper once again illustrates why he stands out in a crowd. Using a unique mixture of wit and charm, XV rides a ‘70s-influenced intergalactic beat from producer 7, which will truly appeal to “all the hipsters and gangsters.” Keep it locked to DJBooth for future updates on this up-and-coming sensation - or you could always visit him at his pad in Squaria.
