Power & Passion, the major label debut from hyped Brooklyn scatologist Mr Muthafuckin’ eXquire, drops today.
Boasting production work from El-P and SpaceGhostPurrp and a guest spot from Gucci Mane, the six-track EP is lining up to be one of the more promising Q4 rap releases. Potholes In My Blog are currently hosting a stream of closing track(s) ‘The Message Pt. 1 & 2′, and it’s a particularly effective one-two.
“The Message’ is essentially two cuts in one. Section One is the ‘good cop’ section, seeing Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire showing off a neat stop-start flow and referencing A Clockwork Orange. Section Two, meanwhile, is where things get rough: over a dutty street beat, Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire pulls meanie postures and twists nursery rhymes into death threats.
