    Five songs, one skit, and just 18 minutes total, this is a concentrated dose of Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire's spaced-out, drink-and-fuck-too-much, end-of-days rap. It's also frustratingly brief and low-stakes, though it leaves you immediately anticipating his next move.

    Though his delivery, wit, and overall presence are exciting and the EP is good for surprises such as Gucci Mane exceeding expectations over El-P's contribution "Telephuck," the continual insistence on raunch risks becoming stale.

    What you'll find in Power & Passion isn't anything outside of his unorthodox style and New York bubble. Rather, it's a fine appetizer before he gears up for an album debut.

    Power and Passion is blighted by a rapper who seems too distracted by his woes to sit down and write more than a couple of full songs.

    eXquire's managed to forge a six-track effort that's only power is to disappoint.
