The blurry, bitter beats of Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire’s tracks mark him out as a rising star of hip hop, and his latest offering – in the form of mixtape ‘Merry eX-Mas and Suck My Dick’ – proves that he’s worth sitting up and listening to.
Over production that growls with aggression like that of Odd Future, but swerves and swooshes with all the laid-back swagger of contemporaries like A$AP Rocky, Mr Muthafuckin eXquire is so of-the-moment that it makes total sense for his mixtape title to tie itself into the present day by wishing its audience a “Merry eX-Mas”. With production credits going to a handful of exciting, up-and-coming names (including “one of them A$AP ni**az i forgot”), the mixtape is stuffed full of beats that play perfectly against eXquire’s addictive flow.

Underground rappers seem to have taken Santa Claus’s work ethic upon themselves this Christmas, as Merry eX-Mas wasn’t the only explosive mixtape dropped on the 25th. Two notorious Bs, Lil’ B and Squadda B of Main Attrakionz also both released tapes to mark the occasion, which you can get respectively here and here.
