Even As A Kid, People Used To Say 'Look At Shorty'

No need for too much background today. If you're familiar with Lord Finesse, you know what he is capable of. Astounding emcee, especially with the punchlines. He has conjured up some stellar tracks including OC's "Jewelz," Big L's "MVP," "All Black" and "The Graveyard." If you are not familiar, you'll probably learn as much as you can after checking 1990's "Bad Mutha." For those lost, Finesse's home page is quite functional and should serve as a good start.

"Bad Mutha" might sound familiar to you new jacks too. Nas used a very similar beat for God Son's "Get Down." In my humble opinion, both tracks are worthy of a spot in your IPOD.

Lord Finesse & DJ Mike Smooth: Bad Mutha (link 1) (link 2) (link 3) (buy it!) (1990, Wild Pitch)
Nas: Get Down (link 1) (link 2) (link 3) (buy it!) (2002, Columbia)

PS: I should have hosting very soon. Much thanks to Adam W. A Rhymefest 'Bounce' re-up was requested. Enjoy here.

Lord Finesse & Nas "get down" both sample James Brown. I ithink the song is on the "black caesar" soundtrack.
