Whoa. Billboard just broke the huge news that Brooklyn rowdy rapper Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire has inked a deal with Universal Republic. In other words, the dude who was at the helm of 2011’s best posse cut — “The Last Huzzah!” — is officially on a major. The guy who said “Fuck the throne, watch the project bench covered in pigeon shit,” rapped over El-P beats on the fantastic Lost In Translation, and loves takin’ his shirt off like Nelly will release his music via Universal Republic going forward. Wow.
