@Benson: Fair call, but it’s still worth buying for the complete footage of Finesse vs. Percee-P, complete with annoying ice-cream van.

Were these original Paul Nice produced tracks also available on the soundtrack or something ?

^ Nah, I don’t think the song were ever released on CD come to think of it.

Thanks for clearing that up – few joints were pretty ill on there…
By the way, what happened to Paul Nice – his last MySpace update is from 2008 or smth… no production credits or anything since that Jay-Z remix album and that other remix CD he had – that man had beats!

I think Percee P won the first round, but Lord Finesse won the rematch!

I thought that was a bit gay in parts, actually.

Blanco, there was a bit of this going around the net about Paul Nice a couple years back:

A lot of bridges have been burnt, I suspect.
