Critical Praise for Finale:

"Finale's debut album may be the rap fan's rap scene fan's rap record: really, really unflashy, and really, really good." -

"Finale's mic presence channels Rakim... You would be hard-pressed to find a more inspiring artist in 2009 than this talented and righteous emcee right here." -

"Finale is clearly running Detroit where rhymes are concerned." -

"He brings the best of the city (Detroit) on wax, with an old school mindset and plenty of originality to match. Finale does what the name suggests, providing hard-hitting wit, optimal word play and nimble ability to ride a beat like a Yamaha." -

Finale, a relatively unknown emcee only a few months ago, has quickly gained critical acclaim for his debut album A Pipe Dream and a Promise. Picking up accolades from,, Remix Magazine, Chairman's Choice in the upcoming issue of XXL Magazine, and more, Finale has quickly proven that he is a force to be reckoned with within the forward-thinking Detroit hip-hop scene and hip-hop mainstream.

Recently Finale has been hitting us over the head with remixes, an exclusive web pre-album album, an album sampler, and even a video game starring the emcee himself (links to all of these below). To kick off the official release of A Pipe Dream and A Promise today, Finale is finally giving us the original album track of "One Man Show." Produced by Black Milk, the beat lays under a classically influenced arpeggiated line that gives Finale the space to dominate the mic with a lyrically engaging and hard-hitting braggadocio. Finale raps, "I'm who they want to be it's what they all need / I'm a part of a lost breed and Ima give 'em all of me 'til God decide to call me... I'm gonna run it like a one man show."

With only one feature guest on his entire debut album, A Pipe Dream and A Promise re-affirms the mentality of "One Man Show" and Finale's extraordinary ability to deliver hip-hop that is lyrical, multi-layered, and thought provoking, on his own terms and through the singular power of his voice and skill. A Pipe Dream And A Promise is now available everywhere.

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.
