For latest track off his forthcoming Kismet mixtape, Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire finally puts to wax “Illest Niggaz Breathin'”. The track’s been a live favorite for well over a year now, and was originally intended to be the lead single off the Power & Passion EP. Having secured the proper clearances for the Mortal Kombat sample (no doubt going through Shao Kahn), eXquire eschews his recent clarity and vulnerability for more outright indignation, attacking critics and the world alike with pure venom (“Heard rumors of my demise/But somehow I got bigger”). Stream it below (via Billboard); also included are instrumental and acapella versions and three remixes.
Due out the first week of June, Kismet also features collaborations from Danny Brown, Flatbush Zombies, Heron, Gorgeous Black and Cokey Briccz, and more. For even more from the tape, be sure to watch the video for “Nightfall At The Thames”, which combines “Noble Drew Ali” and a new song, “The Cauldron”.
