Mr. Muthafuckin’ Exquire Meets Jamel Shabazz for the First Time

This morning our friends at Rollingstone.com premiered a behind-the-scenes video of Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire’s first photo shoot with famed “Back In The Days” photographer Jamel Shabazz. Shabazz, known for documenting the lives and culture of the black and Latino community in NYC was eager to meet eXquire, whom he describes as “a young dynamic, up-and-coming superstar.” Like Shabazz,  eXquire is a Brooklyn native and the video takes us to apartment in Crown Heights’ Kingsborough housing projects. A candid eX tells us about the origin of his rap name, gives us insight into the artistic principles his Passion collective live by and even talks about his days as a parking lot security in Park Slope. Check out the video below.
