Über Lord Finesse
As an emcee, DJ, producer and member of the D.I.T.C. (Diggin in the Crates) crew, Lord Finesse has established his place as one of the most influential figures in hip-hop. Raised in the South Bronx, he first turned heads with his classic 1990 debut, Funky Technician. His well-crafted beats, smooth sample manipulation and intelligent lyricism have helped to develop the East Coast sound. Manning the boards for such high-profile artists as Biggie, Fat Joe, OC, and CNN, he quickly became one of the most sought-after producers in the game. Although not as well-known as some of his contemporaries, his stellar body of work speaks for itself. Lord Finesse's contributions to hip-hop music and culture are astounding, and his place in history as a superproducer is guaranteed to be on par with Dr. Dre and Premier.
