Stone Cold Stare At Medusa
I appreciate that while Mr. Muthfuckin eXquire seems to be going as Mr. MFN eXquire in legit circles these days, he is still inclined to release a single called “Telephuck.” He’s not the type of guy to make a lot of compromises, and he’s at his best when he’s just flagrantly lewd and trashy. His voice and style reminds me of both Method Man and Raekwon, but his personality is far more churlish and hedonistic. The Wu guys always have a touch of seriousness and mystical pretension, but eXquire comes off like a guy who doesn’t want to believe in anything. (I mean, his most famous verse to date peaks when he’s just listing off a bunch of things he doesn’t give a fuck about, all of which pertain to career ambition.) His IDGAF attitude is at home in El-P’s production on this track, which sounds very mechanical and dilapidated even by his usual standards. The music kinda warps the tone of the lyrics – eXquire and Gucci Mane are mainly saying creepy things about sex and women, but the track is so unsexy that it mostly just frames the empty contempt in their voices.
