    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.

    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.

    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.
