The FADER & Noisey Present: Mr. Muthaf*ckin' eXquire - "Noble Drew Ali" (Nightfall at The Thames)

Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire (formerly known as Mr. MFN eXquire), a guy who frequently rhymed about "drunk driving on a Wednesday," frequently hangs out with the self-procliamed Adderall Admiral Danny Brown, and featured a blue-haired drunken stripper on his Lost In Translation mixtape cover. Somehow, he signed a major label deal with Universal Republic last year, released Power & Passion EP, followed by self-released The Man In The High Castle, and then disappeared for the better part of the next 6-8 months. It's been revealed now, after the fact, that Mrs. MFN eXquire [mother] was diagnosed with cervical cancer, which propelled him to take an imminent break from touring, do a "180 and kind of look @ [his] life," and ultimately sober up. Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire is currently prepping a comeback mixtape of sorts, mysteriously titled Kismet. It's rumored to drop "very shortly" and feature a bunch of like-minded young rappers... Danny Brown, Flatbush Zombies, Goldie Glo, Heron, and The Passion (Gorgeous Black/Cokey Briccz).

The FADER ended up premiering "Noble Drew Ali" mid-Tuesday afternoon, which is now available for download @ his newly-founded Life Is Passion site along with last week's "Draped In Gold." eXquire seems to have greatly expanded his reading material and somehow manages to shout-out everyone from Black Panther deputy chairman Fred Hampton to righteous Public Enemy hypeman, Flavor Flav; expertly rapping, "40 ounces at the round table / crown full of thorns made for some barbed wire cables... 9 chains on my neck, you could weigh my pain / They gon' say, he came, he saw, and he conquered!"
EDIT: "Anyone who might have thought Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire was fucking around can pretty much shove it, because he's back and better than ever, as proven by his new video for "Nightfall at the Thames," which finds eXqo spitting "Noble Drew Ali" a capella and then cavorts in a see-through hot tub with a young lady for "The Cauldron"' (Noisey).
