XV-BITSTU Freestyle

For those that are unaware, BTSTU is the Jai Paul track sampled by Drake and 40 for Dreams Money Can Buy.

XV cleverly switches the title to represent him being ‘Back.In.The.STU‘, grabbing the instrumental from the original rather than the more popular Drake version, and lacing it with some really enjoyable raps. Vizzy’s never been a slacker with his delivery, and here he brings a flexible range of flows along with his witty lyricism for a very enjoyable remix. Admittedly, I was a little overwhelmed by the production on the original version when initially exposed to it, but XV’s raps soften its somewhat jagged, experimental edges considerably, and hence it’s a likeable effort that feels more like a genuine remix rather than a freestyle.
