What a year 2012 is shaping out to be for Brooklyn's most offensively named hip hop star. Firstly, the news earlier this year that Mr Muthafuckin' eXquire had landed a lucrative recording contract with Universal, and now the announcement that we can expect two releases from the rapper by the end of the summer.

The first, the self released EP Huzzah, is due out July 3rd on iTunes and other digital retailers. Named after one of the stand out tracks from his 2011 mix tape Lost In Translation, we can likely expect a revamped version of this track feature. The second release, Power and Passion EP will be eXquire's first official output on Universal, and will be hitting stores in September.
