XV transforms Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” into “Boss Level” | New Music

Warner Brothers signed “Smallville” Kansas repping rapper XV is the latest American artist to take aim and spray on Dubstep beats as he takes on US producer Skrillex‘s single “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites”. The beat is pretty clearly video game influenced, and XV picks up on that with a series of very clever gaming metaphors. Dope stuff.
