The Funky man is one of my favorite Producers/MCs ever, so if you’re a fan of his music, make sure you have this in your collection.
This record contains the LP version of “Actual Facts” and “Game plan” from The Awaking LP plus two previously unreleased cuts, “Soul Plan” being one them, hits you with the smoothest beat on this 12” featuring Roy Ayers who later delivers a xylophone solo over the instrumental version. The other joint is “Underworld Operations” featuring Marquee who was also on “Speak ya Peace”.
Since Dj Espionage did an R&B post, check out these tracks that Lord Finesse produced:
She was part of Masta Ace Incorporated click back in 94’. Her album, called “Rhymes & Beats” was released in '96 and it had production by Ase One and of course Lord Finesse. Very Dope track.
Caron Wheeler “Soul Street (Remix)”
She did some collabos with Soul II Soul, released 2 albums, had some hits...frankly I don’t care much about her music, but this remix is too dope to leave out of this post. Puff Daddy also received some production credit.
Stephen Simmonds “Alone (Remix)”
Originally recorded in '97, this remix features the late Big L & Marquee and was later released on vinyl in 2001 under Priority Records.
