    In case you forgot: The world might end tomorrow. The super-smart ancient Mayans predict a straight-up apocalypse. Depending on if you believe the hype or not, December 21 could get pretty hairy. Or nothing will happen at all; we could just start our regular morning routine and go on with our lives. But it’s best to be prepared, right?<p>If you haven’t noticed, there has been an abundance of “End of the World” parties and shows all over the country, as well as rap releases slated for the occasion. Mr. MFN eXquire isn’t one of those rappers dropping new music, but he did have some hilarious things on his bucket list <a href="http://www.xxlmag.com/features/2012/12/mr-mfn-exquire-clarifies-trinidad-james-tweets-i-dont-respect-him-but-its-not-like-i-got-beef-with-him/">when we spoke earlier this week.</a> From playing <em>Battletoads & Double Dragon</em> one last time to settling the score with a certain mayor of New York, here are 10 things eXquire wants to do before the world ends. If the Mayans were right, he'd better hurry up! —<em>Eric Diep</em> (<a href="https://twitter.com/E_Diep"><em>@E_Diep</em></a>)</p>

    Make Up With My Father
    "I’d probably make up with my Dad. I don’t know—I don’t want to die hating my dad. That’s stupid. Me and my pops don’t kick it like we’re supposed to. We’re cool, but we don’t kick it like we’re supposed to. My dad left when I was 16 years old, so I was a lot older when my father left. My father just moved away—I didn’t even know my father was moving. I woke up one day and my dad lived in Florida. That shit really changed me. At that time in my life I was going into high school and I was an honor student and shit like that; when my dad left, that shit kind of made me go the other way a little bit. It just kind of made me bug out and drop out of school—a lot of things that retrospectively, when I look back at it, if my father had been around, I probably wouldn’t have done. But I was just mad at him and I wanted attention, so I would just do things for attention all the time. Not to get into my life and my problems, but I’d probably try to make up with him. I’m 27 now, so that was a long time ago, but that’s probably one thing that I would do before the Mayans come and slap this shit up, the sky falls and whatnot."

    Play <em>Battletoads vs. Double Dragon</em>
    "I would play <em>Battle Toads vs. Double Dragon</em> on Super Nintendo. I played the shit out of <em>Battle Toads vs. Double Dragon</em> when I was younger. I was fuckin’ shit up. It was just a match made in heaven. Back then you didn’t see crossovers like that. That was innovative as shit back then. That was like seeing Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse in the same movie—it was crazy. I’d probably get that, and give <em>Earthworm Jim</em> one more spin, and just do it. Throw my flyest clothes on, go visit my moms, and it’s over."

    Eat Boo Berry (or Franken Berry, or Count Chocula) Cereal
    "Boo Berry—you don’t know Boo-berry? Count Chocula and Boo Berry. Oh—and Franken Berry! Franken Berry, yup! The purple nigga. That shit’s mad good. I’d get a box of Franken Berry, and I’d play <em>Battle Toads vs. Double Dragon</em> until the world ended. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is always the go-to—CTC all day—but this is a special occasion. A lot of the time, you can only get those Franken Berries on Halloween. They don’t be havin’ it in the store like that. When Halloween come around you get the Halloween exclusive: the Franken Berries. So you know I need those because they’re exclusive. CTC, I can get that any time."

    Visit the Brooklyn Children’s Museum
    "I’ve done everything you could possibly do in Brooklyn, man. I’ve been shot at on every block, chased through every hood. What would I do in Brooklyn? I’d probably go to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum one more time. I used to love it there when I was little. My mother used to take me there and I would look at the kaleidoscope and all that. I don’t know what it’s like now. Mind you, I’m old, so this was a long time ago. This was when Biggie was out when I used to go there. It’s just nature and kids stuff. It's science—it’s cool. When I was little, they had a park in the back and they used to do this thing every June called June Balloon. There’d be hundreds of kids there, and everybody gotta bring a balloon, and everybody let the balloon go at the same time. I used to love that shit. That used to be the most fun festival in the world. I would go there every year with my mother. They don’t do it anymore, but when they used to that, it was fly. You should go, even as an adult. At least take your nieces—find an excuse to go. You can pretend like you’re takin’ them, but you’re really going for yourself."

    Make an eXquire Collage
    "I probably would take all the pictures of myself as I’ve become successful and put them in one frame. I’ve been keeping everything: my flyers, my posters, everything like that. So I’m gonna do one big collage of my successful self. I’d do the narcissistic collage. Because I did the rap collage, and everybody’s like, “Why didn’t you put yourself in it?” And I was like, Well, I just thought it would be narcissistic to put myself in my own collage because I’m a rapper. I put everybody else in there. But this time, I would just do me. I would make sure I look sexy in all the pictures and look good and do it up so when the women come to my crib they’ll be like, “Oooh that collage look good, I wanna fuck.” That’s how it go."

    Go back to Africa
    "I’ve never been to Africa, but I want to go though. That would be fly to go to Egypt or something like that. Go to Cameroon or some fly shit. Ethiopia. Get it poppin'. Yeah, I’m gonna go back to Africa. Nas, <em>Belly</em> style."

    Listen to Feist one last time
    "Shit, if the world was gonna end, it’s this chick. I don’t know if they are group or one chick. They are from Canada. Feist. I’ll listen to Feist. I love Feist. What’s the one she has? [Starts singing “One Evening”] Nah, she has another one called “Let It Die.” “The saddest part of a broken heart isn’t the ending, so much as the start.” That one. “Let It Die.” That’s the perfect song to go out to."

    Wear my "Boomey" beads
    "I don’t even wear the necklaces no more, but I'll probably just throw 'em on one more time. Go out reckless and shit. Everybody started calling me Exqo Bom-Ba-Ye. [Then] they just started calling me Boomey. The beads just became the Boomey beads. I would wear the Boomey beads, a pair of silk boxers and some cheese Timbs."

    Settle the score With Mayor Bloomberg
    "I wanna punch somebody in their face too. Some violence before the world ends. Who would I want to punch in the face? Not no rap nigga—I would punch Mayor Bloomberg in the face. Yup. Definitely. I don’t like Bloomberg at all. Fuck Bloomberg. I’ll throw shots at that nigga. The world about to end, I’m punching him. I wouldn’t even hit him. Just throw some shots at him real quick. I seen this nigga one time. He was walking down Utica Ave. So I’m like, "What up Bloomberg?" Nah mean? He was like, "Yo, get the fuck outta here nigga," and he threw some shit at me. Nah, that’s not what happened. [<em>Laughs</em>] I just don’t like that nigga! I don’t have to have no reason."

    Last thing…
    "I’d probably nut in my girl and marry her at the same damn time." [<em>Laughs</em>]

    Umm, from what I know the Mayans never said the world was ending, just a new era coming…
