Damn – when XV dreams, he dreams big. Having parlayed his fantasies of hip-hop superstardom into an honest-to-God rap career, the freestyle series alum‘s now looking to achieve a similar feat in the dating arena. His dream girl? A sexy Foreign Exchange Student who shares his musical tastes, smokes and drinks like a pro, and can school him at Street Fighter IV – all without a breaking a perfectly-manicured nail. Also, she’s from another planet. This unreleased joint finds beatsmith Miami Horror cooking up an infectious, retro-funky beat as XV details a vision of beauty sure to elicit a wistful sigh or two from any fella with remotely nerdy tendencies: “[She’s] fresh as f* ck… but at the same time she plays Marvel vs. Capcom 3, listens to the Pixies religiously and has like a 16 kill streak on Black Ops.” Not that a taste for indie-rock and Xbox gaming is required to appreciate this cut – complete with the producer’s falsetto hook vocals and a blistering synth solo by Awesome Sound, this record should charm anyone with ears. This cut has yet to be attached to a project, but you’ll be first to know when that changes. In the meantime, why not catch XV at one of the remaining dates on his currently-running tour?
