It's not often that a rapper emerges reflecting a style that's not akin to the spirit of the hip-hop elite. Hailing from Brooklyn, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire has been compared to B.I.G. by peers (namely newbie Danny Brown, who's also on our list), while fans make connections between the emcee and Kool Keith, MF Doom and Method Man. Four years after the release of his debut, The Big Fat Kill, eXquire continues to roll out the raw with his breakout tape Lost in Translation and his latest, Merry eX-mas & Suck My Dick. Next up for eXquire's Peel Off crew: Brokest Rich Ni**as.
