Lord Finesse Live In Tokyo + Vintage Press Kit

  1. All the party people say ‘is’nt he somethin’!!

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. Great Post & Great Track (thanks for sharing that Robbie)

  6. Daaammn!!!!!Italy will never be ready….D.I.T.C. 4 life!
