Two legendary Bronx emcees face to face in front of the hip hop landmark Patterson Projects.
Lord Finesse and Percee P get at each other over a loop of “Funky Drummer” on this eveningÂ
some time in the summer of 1989. Besides having to face such lyrically aggressive opponents
on the rhyme tip, they also had to battle over the irksome sounds of a Mr. Softee ice cream truck
jingle and a gaggle of loud mouth crumb snatchers. Regardless, both emcees deliver incredibleÂ
performances and both deserve praise for the classic verses they dropped.
Definitely 20 unforgettable minutes in our culture’s history.
