Mr MFN eXquire - Noble Drew Ali
In 1913, a man calling himself the Prophet Noble Drew Ali founded the Moorish Science Temple of America, an unorthodox Islamic sect whose primary tenets included the belief that African Americans were descended from medieval Muslim inhabitants of Morocco. With his mind on spiritual matters following his return from a recent hiatus, Mr. MFN eXquire makes the religious leader the centerpiece of his next mixtape’s lead single, a track which he has stated epitomizes the project’s tone. Over CONSTOBUZZ’ cloudy, claustrophobic production, the Crown Heights native mixes the offbeat lyricism his fans know and love with allusions to religious and political matters (including a shout-out to the late Fred Hampton). Intrigued by eXquire’s new direction? The watch our pages for more fresh singles leading up to the as yet-unscheduled release of new street album Kismet.
