Mr. Muthafuckin Exquire Talks His Rolling Stone Father, His Stint on Universal, His Success Being Anything But Overnight and Performs “Green Ranger”
Mr. Muthafuckin Exquire had a palpable buzz in 2011. The video for “Huzzah” was so raw, grimy, and stylized. It skyrocketed him into the limelight of every major music publicatiom. Every rap fan I knew was excited by his potential. Then, somewhat surprisingly, he signed with a major. Things seemed to get a bit quieter. From the outside looking in it seemed like the label didn’t know what to do with him. Eventually he announced he was no longer signed to Universal.
I find the early 2010’s to be an amazingly interesting time in music. The labels really started to see themselves losing their stronghold and began trying to get their hands on anything that was building a buzz on the internet.
These stories are so intriguing and relatable, it goes without saying I was excited to hear his side. Highly recommend this convo, we had a great time talking about his rolling stone of a father, his stint on Universal, and his success being anything but “overnight.”
