Almost a year ago to the day, Mr. Muthaf*ckin’ eXquire resurfaced after a two year hiatus with a self-titled album. And just last month, he kept it coming with Confessions of a Sex Addict, where he touched on his love life and past mistakes with women after the birth of his daughter.
Now, with a heavy heart, the Brooklyn emcee has release a previously-vaulted song he and Madlib created called “Black Mirror.”
“I did this song with Madlib awhile ago. I wrote this about Black Masculinity and my relationship with my three uncles (London, Flex and Shango),” eXquire says. “Two weeks ago I actually lost my Uncle Shango. If you know me closely you know my uncle was my everything. I probably cried more tears than I ever have in my life the past two weeks. Still can’t believe he’s gone. I’m crying while I type this. But I feel him within my spirit everyday. It was hard for me to listen to his voice on this record (I still can’t) but I spoke to Madlib and decided it would be therapeutic to release it. It was one of his favorite songs of mine. Love you eternally Uncle Pop. I will NEVER FORGET YOU AS LONG AS I LIVE.”
Included on our latest Weekly Dope playlist, the song can be heard below.
On top of “Black Mirror,” eXquire also released a song called “Bootlicker (Burn Baby Burn)” for everyone impacted by police brutality with all proceeds from the record being donated to The Bail Project.
