At Home With: Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire

Head busting, joke-cracking everyman Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire still lives in his childhood home. He’s redecorated the upstairs apartment in Crown Heights’ Kingsborough Houses since his mom left a couple years ago, filling it with sentimental totems—crayons from an ex, inspirational collages and memorabilia from shows and trips. eXquire, born Anthony Allison, is a creative, prolific homebody and a pleasure to be around. He records in his apartment, also the site of his wild, experimentalist videos, and prefers the company of the kids he came up with to nights out with new friends. When we paid him an evening visit recently, we left his bubble only to get a sandwich at Subway. Everyone agrees they’re better than the sandwiches at the bodegas near Kingsborough. Later, at the discount liquor store featured prominently in eXquire’s videos, the rapper hugged neighborhood personalities. The store was slammed, Peach Ciroc flying off the shelves. We bought some and brought it home, where eXquire explained what independence means to him, why he’s in no rush to move and his door is always open. Watch above, then download eXquire’s newest track, recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks, below. New Yorkers can see him perform live this Friday at Mishka’s Brooklyn store.
