Drunk Drivin' On a Wednesdaaaaay: Mr. MFN eXquire - "Position of Passion" (50 Cent Remix)
Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire is hands down one of the most outlandish, characteristically "un-commercial" major label signees to co-align with the big dogs since... I don't know, Frank Zappa or Alice Cooper. Mr. MFN eXquire is basically like a more crazy/broke version of Biggie & Ol' Dirty Bastard, who frequently raps about comic books, pro wrestling, and bitches; Tom Breihan almost perfectly described his overall persona once as "the perma-drunk guy in your building, the one who's still PARTYING loudly @ 4a.m. but who never gets told to keep it down, since he makes everyone vaguely nervous." Power & Passion EP/mixtape is slated for an Oct. 30-31st release, making it his first project since initially signing a deal with Universal Records back in April-May.
Mr. MFN eXquire manages to lace up some pretty slick rhymes, which are then over-laid on top of a beat hi-jacked from 50 Cent's sophomore album The Massacre, "Position of Power" (2005). While it was quietly self-released along with the label announcement a few months ago, eXquire just unveiled the companion music video for "Position of Power" late last night. Chock-full of scantily-clad strippers, dollar bills, and liquor... I guess it's be safe to say that the Brook Bobbins-directed "Position of Passion" video is fairly NSFW, my friends ha. Just in case you've been [seriously] slacking, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire's break-out mixtape, Lost In Translation is luckily still available for download over @ Mishka's digi-label Bandcamp page.
