"Nightfall at the Thames" is a new video from grimy New York rapper Mr. MFN eXquire, but it's actually the treatment for two new songs: "Noble Drew Ali" and "The Cauldron." In the first half of the video, eXquire raps "Noble Drew Ali" a capella while sitting on the hood of a car. The audio is picked up by the camera's mic, giving it the feel of underground rap DVDs that held the streets down before the proliferation of YouTube. "The Cauldron" gets a bit of a more high-fidelity treatment, though one that is naturally close to being NSFW. eXquire raps the song in a clear bathtub surrounded by women in various states of undress.
eXquire's Kismet mixtape was supposed to drop at the end of March, but is still presumably forthcoming.
