    this EP turned album was the last one we heard from master MC/producer Lord Finesse and I must say that for me this is where he really peaked. Production is flames throughout and 'Ness is so smooth it's ridicilous on here, his punchlines is crazy though they sometimes are so easy they'll make you laugh but still works because of the mans extreme swagger (lol, i said it). "When I be on the mic i'm making more moves than a dance instructor" hahah shit like that...

    the whole concept of the album is brilliant and original and works really well, he got 9 real songs on here and surrounds them with interludes featuring dope beats and a famous MC presenting the song that's about to come up. all the guest rappers perform well on here - Finesse, OC and KRS-One on a song is a insane combination. about 2/3 of the songs on here I would give a perfect 5/5 rating and the way the album is executed as a whole is crazy so i'd give it a 9/10 rating without a problem. peep it if you haven't had the chance yet.

    I like the song on 'Handsome Boy Modeling School' (Dan the Automator and Prince Paul) with Lord Finesse and Linkin Park

    as far as punchlines go? to me this is the holy grail. lord finesse is flawless on the mic. dope punchlines without trying too hard. never sounding fake. this album is nothing but pure hip hop. 5 stars.


    So many bodies on my microphone the shit's haunted
