    Product Details

    Summary

    With his third album, Lord Finesse representing D.I.T.C. (Diggin' in the Crates crew) brought together some of the finest rappers of the moment for an album almost entirely produced by Finesse himself. Known as producer and rapper, Finesse is gifted in metaphorical rhyming like other well-known MCs such as Big L or Chino XL, and again produces a great record deserving of any rap fan's archive. Guests like Akinyele, KRS-One, MC Lyte, O.C., AG, Diamond D., and Kid Capri make up the all-star cast. Topping it all off as a hidden bonus cut are verses by Large Professor, Grand Puba, and Sadat X on arguably one of hip-hop's finest tracks ever, entitled "Actual Facts." Contains the standout singles "Hip 2 Da Game" and "Gameplan".

    Comment: This album is a classic and it should be in your collection if u are a real rap/hip hop fan. He's got mad skillz on both his beats and lyricism. Big L(rip) and Lord Finesse were da best emcees from d.I.t.c IMO. This album and livestyles ov da poor and dangerous are classics.

    Comment: His best album,and one of the top 40 or 50 hip hop albums from the 90's,PERIOD !!!!!!!! I just loved the lyrical interplay between MC Lyte and Finesse on 'Game Plan' one of my fave tracks on the CD.I have this on OG vinyl as well,and YES it does sound better,but not everyone has a decent TT these days... KRS's comes correct as does O.C. and all the other guests on this true gem.Its a shame this album keeps going OOS all the time.
