This guy is quickly becoming one of my favorite emcees, if you haven’t checked out A Pipe Dream and a Promise you are truly sleeping. You can follow me after jump for part 2 which has Finale spitting an acapella on the streets of LA. Continue reading

I’m so glad that 2DopeBoyz had this leak today. This track, “Paid Homage”, is probably my favorite track off of Finale‘s debut album A Pipe Dream And A Promise. It contains a bomb ass beat done by Flying Lotus, which was originally FlyLo’s tribute to Jay Dee’s beat on the Slum Village track “Fall In Love”. Make sure you check this one out, Finale shows respect to the late and very great  J Dilla in classic fashion.

Finale Gets Some “Issues” Off His Chest

finaleAs I mentioned in an album review I did earlier this month, Finale’s album A Pipe Dream and a Promise is stupendously stellar. This track, “Issues”, is the latest leak off of Finale’s album and offers a harrowing insight into growing up in less than average circumstances. At the same time the song is also a great narrative about making the best of bad situations. The song is produced by Swiss producer Dimlite and according to the e-mail I got, Finale got the beat and wrote this track in an hour. Finale has talent that most emcees would kill for, this track is a great example of this.

Make sure you download this track, and if you haven’t go out and pick up Finale’s debut album A Pipe Dream and a Promise because it’s one hell of an impressive jump into the world of Hip-Hop.
