Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire Likes Comparisons to Notorious B.I.G. [VIDEO]

Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire is taking the comparisons to the legendary Notorious B.I.G. in stride.

After learning that fellow MC Danny Brown called him the next Biggie Smalls backstage at the same XXL Kendrick Lamar Hennessy show that he performed for in December, eXquire tells that B.I.G. isn’t the only respected New York rapper he gets compared to.

“I get Biggie, I get [MF] Doom, I get Method Man, I get all that shit, ya know what I mean?” the Crown Heights, Brooklyn rapper says. “So, it’s ill because none of those people even sound alike. So, it’s kind of ill. What that basically says to me is niggas can’t peg me, ya know what I mean? So, they just try to throw whatever they can to compare me to something. They want to grasp it.”

And eXquire, whose records like “Huzzah” and “Lou Ferigno’s Mad” have been buzzing on the Internet, likes the love.

“I enjoy it,” he said. “I enjoy just fucking people’s heads up and just pushing the limits with my music because that’s all it really means to me is that I’m pushing it to another level that they never heard, so they try to box it in, but they can’t.”

One comparison he doesn’t care for, but understands is that to the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard for his wild persona and rhyme style.

“I don’t like that one,” eXquire said, “but I feel it.”

As per the original comment made by Brown about eXquire being the new Big Poppa, the rapper credits that to his ability to recognize “real” talent.

“Nobody even said it, but to me eXquire is the new Biggie Smalls—Biggie before Puffy touched him,” Brown said. “[He's a] Big Brooklyn nigga with bars. The verse from [his track] ‘The Song That Never Ends’ is the best verse of the year. Real recognize real. He’s the new Biggie for New York. I see it.”  —Jakinder Singh

      @bomb1 Can you offer to pay their college tuition? Sometimes people do what they have to do to survive in this world. What can you offer them another “I have a dream speech!” Not saying that this is the right thing to do. However, the comment you made is not excatly positive! Having his head chopped off would not solve anything. “You certainly seem like the Devil wishing bad things upon others by not adding a solution to the problems that the youth of today are facing.” For future references try making a comments that are uplifting and positive.
