Is Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire The New Biggie Smalls?

In the video above, Danny Brown gets interviewed by XXL and speaks on Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire. It’s actually a pretty short video but the main thing to take away from it is that Brown says eXquire is the new Biggie Smalls. Now being that to me The Notorious B.I.G. is one of the greatest MC’s ever (In my Top 2 actually), I was quick to scratch my head and think Danny Brown was back smoking that shit again to make such a grand statement. But then as I thought about it, the statement may not be so crazy.

Nobody even said it, but to me eXquire is the new Biggie Smalls —Biggie before Puffy touched him. Big Brooklyn nigga with bars. The verse from “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. – Danny Brown

The obvious thing that’s similar between Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire & B.I.G. is that they both hail from Brooklyn; that’s a given. But Danny Brown did clarify his statement saying he was talking about Biggie “before Puffy touched him”. One thing I’ve always liked about Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire how raw he is. I mean, besides having the same “black nasty motherfucker” like content (He also had a dick sucking skit on his mixtape Lost In Transiton) & the booming voice, I’m thinking eXquire wasn’t exactly aiming for radio exposure with the word motherfucker in his rap name. Most know that Diddy is the one who shined up B.I.G.’s style with Kangol hats & Versace shades. I’m not saying Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire is on the level of Biggie talent wise (that’s stupid), but the similarities are there and maybe Danny Brown is on to something.
