I just watched Wrestlemania 15
Remembered where I got my name from

from XV – Everyday Life Lyrics on Rap Genius


XV was very into wrestling as a youngster and believes that wrestling is very comparable to the rap industry and how the system is trying to make the rappers conform to the mainstream but lately more individual musicians are coming out and lashing out at the hierarchy.

XV remembers seeing what he wanted from people in the audience as one who was a part of the audience; to be idolized and have people look up to him for who and what he is. Someone outside but inside the box at the same time. The Squarian ideal developed from his want to be an individual and make it noticeable to the collective.

Mainly he’s talking about WrestleMania XV, one of the few events he attended. He either wanted to be a rapper along with his love for wrestling at the time and in both situations the occurrence of “fifteen” were there. He was fifteen years old when he went or saw WrestleMania XV and also decided to start rapping when he was fifteen.
