The Song:

Since the release of Finale’s debut solo album, A Pipe Dream And A Promise, the response to the rising Detroit emcee’s abilities has been nothing short of stellar. With “It’s Mine,” the 70th entry from the long-running DJBooth.net Weekly Freestyle Series, Finale continues to show off his unique ability to attack an instrumental with the rewind-worthy flow that is quickly becoming his trademark. In addition to a recently completed European tour, Finale is currently finalizing the video for the lead single from A Pipe Dream And A Promise, “Motor Music,” which was shot during a recent trip to Los Angeles.

Finale recently released Super Finale, an innovative, Super Mario Bros-themed video game, starring Finale as the main character, in which fans can win track the track “One Man Show” from the album upon completion of the game. A Pipe Dream And A Promise features production from J Dilla as well as Nottz, Flying Lotus, Oddisee, MPhazes, and Black Milk, who produced the album’s lead single “Motor Music.”

The Background:

Before making his entrance into hip-hop, Finale worked as an automotive engineer promising to one day follow his dream of becoming a rapper. Making the rounds at local Detroit open mics and emcee battles, Finale began to mingle with local talents like Guilty Simpson and One.Be.Lo. After emailing some joints back and forth with J Dilla, Finale finally met him backstage at the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival), where Dilla introduced him to Madlib, saying that he was one of the best in the game. “It was an honor and definitely a defining moment,” says Finale. After realizing his passion and talent for hip-hop, Finale decided to finally quit his day job, follow his true passion, and make music a full-time career. After a handful of Fat Beats released singles, an album released with European producer Spier 1200 as a part of The Rawkus 50, and numerous appearances on independent releases from Invincible, eLZhi and others, Finale’s official debut LP, A Pipe Dream & A Promise, is available in stores and online everywhere via Interdependent Media.
