Vintage: Lord Finesse at Fat Beats 1996

blame it on JES7 February 10, 2015

After delivering rare footage of a 19 year old Kanye West at Fat Beats, Dilated Peoples and Chali 2nda and Heiro – all performing at Fat Beats – DJ Eclipse hits us with more rare, found footage once again.

We’ll let E explain it since he was there:

Here’s another performance clip from Fat Beats grand opening day of the 6th Ave location. Lord Finesse on the mic and DJ Three on the wheels. You even see the owner of the store Joseph Abajian pop back behind the tables for a minute to talk to Three. Finesse killed these two verses and had the crowd oohing and ahhing with his punchlines. It meant a lot to us that Finesse came by because he was the biggest name we had come through all day. And once again you get a glimpse of some of the other people in the store who were just vibing out to the sounds or waiting their turn to get on the mic.
