Lord Finesse Live In Tokyo + Vintage Press Kit

Sure, I’m a Finesse fan. He’s the only rapper I ever asked to sign anything, so when I had a chance to get my hands on the original press kit for his seminal Return of the Funkyman, best believe I went in.

You know how everyone always talks about the Purple Tape? I feel that way about the Funkyman tape, which included the incredible, exclusive bonus cut below…

Is this a Showbiz production? Sounds like it, and he name-checks him, but does it specify in the liner notes?

I was actually at this concert — happened to be on Tokyo on business, figured out I’d catch Finesse. But I mostly went because Kane was there (BDK my personal favorite). Kane killed it, Scoob was there, he did a dance routine, then came back out at the end with Finesse and the band. Unfortunately they didn’t allow any pictures or video. It was a great show all around. Thanks for posting.

I love Finesse ’cause he says ‘shit’ more than ANY other rapper…and he flows better over Scooby Doo loops than anyone ever. Ever.
