Lord Finesse "Funky Technician" CD

CD - $14.99

Funky Technician is great snapshot of late-1980s pop culture. Littered throughout are references to Saturday-afternoon kung-fu movies, Nintendo, Eddie Murphy, as well as a free-for-all of funky samples from the likes of James Brown (most notably on "Here I Come" and the Black Caesar loop on "Bad Mutha"), Lee Dorsey, and the Honeydrippers. On tracks like "Funky Technician" and "I Keep the Crowd Listening," the "slick brother with a fade and a half-moon" flows confident and casual over DJ Premier-produced breakbeat standards from heavily mined rap resources like the "funkiest man alive," Rufus Thomas. Finesse and DJ Mike Smooth exhaust most of their tricks two-thirds of the way through the album, but Finesse's boasting and Smooth's beats do have their place in the hip-hop history book. --Todd Levin
