Product Details


This is the 2nd installment of The Art Of Diggin' Mix-CD series. In 1999 a series of collectable CDs was released called Diggin' On Blue, which included me, Biz Markie, and Pete Rock. That CD is now a rare find and if you come across it, you'll have to pay a nice penny!

With that being said and a demand for the CD, I decided to revisit the Blue Note archive. While the majority enjoyed Diggin' On Blue, some complained there was too much talking on the CD. This time around, like a classic motto for radio stations: "There's more music & less talking". The Blue Note State Of Mind mix features grooves, samples, and vintage classics from the Blue Note archive. If you enjoyed Diggin' On Blue, this one should take you over the top, with over 70 minutes of jazz gems.

This mix is for music lovers, collectors, obscure diggers, jazz lovers and fans of sampling. This is a compiled collective of the Blue Note catalogue.

Comment: Dope tracks for sure, the problem is finesse thinks he own's the shit. I never heard him shout out to Lou Donaldson, Grant Green and the rest of the camp. Those cats are hip hop and finesse would be a nobody if it wasn't for them. Questlove holds it down though with "droppin science" he dont fuck around with the bs. Music was made for everyone to enjoy.

Comment: Good thing I pre ordered this. Got my copy in the mail today. These mixes with originals arent for everyone. If it aint your cup of tea, leave it alone. Most rookies nowadays dont understand the reason for these mixes. Finesse is a legend, good emcee, good dj and damn good producer. DITC for life. Respect it!!

Comment: the Last Album I'd hear from Finesse sucked, although I like him, I can't say much about him. He got fat and is nowhere near Kane's Level and I've been listening to hip-hop for 30 plus years so all that shit about him being a legend is BS.. he's OK, but I wouldn't give him that label..Big Daddy Kane is a Legend, Kool G. Rap is a Legend...Lord Finesse, come don't have to come out of Blue Note to be hip-hop...are you fucking serious?...get over yourselves, you fucking nerds..are you all in your damn teens or something? Finesse's Last Album was bullshit, and I'm talkinga bout the one where he had Large Professor and Grand Puba in it...yeah I bought that shit, I wish I would've downloaded it so I could just delete it out of my Ipod, I can't even sell it online. Klaus...shut the fuck up. you sound like one of them fucking white boys all-of-a-sudden defending old school artists...please sit down on a corner and "woosaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!"....Finesse' shit is not all that, it's no wonder he's no longer with Dr. Dre anymore

Comment: "Finesse ain't shit, he ain't got no bling-bling, no bitches, no Beemmaz, Lex or Benz, he ain't talkin' 'bout how rich he is or how he changed the game. Finesse ain't talkin' 'bout trips to Paris, Europe, Euros or boats." Finesse deserves our respect for one thing straight: HE IS HIP HOP! Can't wait to hear his new album! Stop dissin' real legends, focus on old school rap for at least 10 years and after that you have the right to post comments about legends on Undergroundhiphop. Regards, motha fuckaz :)

Comment: Cockhead, you wanted to be original because you posted first but you just played your self. Finesse don't give a fuck about covers, only bumass rapers choose to look like a christmass three on a cover. I can't believe a hip-hop fan would talk bs about Finesse, like someone said, this is like a soul fan dissing James Brown.....shame

Comment: Some of these comments are virtually correct for the cover, he doesnt have any sort of clean fashion look at all, my brother told to me that he thinks the man on the cover is wearing another mans trousers and I will agree to this. I will happiness say it is a rap look for the image but and that is more important!

Comment: LMAOOOO.... nerd n*ggaz got heated huh? Done got under y'all nerds skin. Nicca ain't done released a proper solo in 16 years and y'all acting like this supposed to excite a real nygga? I can respect those unreleased vaults releases but enough with these mixes, I want a old nicca to focus on the real stuff first. Dude been sloppy with the beats lately, I'm telling y'all the truth and you maaaad as hell, I dont give a fuck about no legacy cuz if niccaz aint bring it they just aint, LMFAO @ nerds

Comment: I'm sorry ughh for commenting on another writer's review but I can't sit here and not say something about these kids who are disrespecting one of the greatest emcees of all time. Not to mention he's ridiculous on the beats too. There was once upon a time where fans would listen to an emcee of finesse's caliber through the static of a radio because he's that good. Who gives a fuck what he's wearing? SINCE WHEN DID THAT MATTER?? And therein lies the problem with hip hop today. Some of you here should be ashamed of yourselves.

Comment: Huge Lord Finesse fan, but I agree with Cockhead about the cover. Nice concept & background, but he ruins the cover looking like he just hopped out of bed, took a quick snapshot on a cheap digital camera, cropped & threw a drop shadow on it. But that aside, it's about the music first. And I hope the album's dope.

Comment: LMAOOO.... Suckas don't think I know about the Lord? Done bumped him and mike smooth's shit way before y'all cornball got hip to his shit. Point was the cover is WACK, dude should release a proper album and stop releasing bum ass projects every other year. Tired of these DITC niccaz flippin and floppin, AG & Show sound like a pair of dusted niccaz as well. Diamond sounds CORNY, Squizzy-D, who da fucc calls himself Squizzy? OC & Apollo Brown, that should be decent tho.
