XV speaks on bringing back “classic Just Blaze” for debut LP [Video]

In the midst of forthcoming arrivals, namely his Popular Culture mixtape and long-awaited debut album The Kid With The Green Backpack, XV sat down with The Source to mull over a number of topics. One of those happened to be super producer Just Blaze, whom Vizzy is working with on said LP.

As the emcee puts it himself, he’s bringing back the “classic Just Blaze” (think more “Public Service Announcement” and less “Live Your Live”), as he’s apparently slipping the beatsmith a number of soul-based samples to flip for his album.

XV added he aims to craft a seamless full-length project with Just Blaze à la Saigon and The Greatest Story Never Told, where the producer would flow all 13 tracks together (which we know ain’t a thing for Just). Cue your inner hip-hop nerd to go a little bit crazy right about now.
