Video: Jon John TV @ Lord Finesse’s Birthday Party (feat. Rakim, Mr. Cheeks, Grand Puba, AG & Doitall)

Jon John TV catches up with Lord Finesse, AG, Grand Puba, Doitall, Mr. Cheeks, and Rakim at the Lord Finesse birthday party in NYC at SOB’s. It was a great night for true school hip hop heads as we take it back to the 90’s era of hip hop. Lord Finesse blessed the stage with a lot of his classic punchlines and bars as well as others.

We also took the time out to build with the R about his latest project, future collabs, and also about his take on the latest boxing news.

    Naw. Dope flick. We’ve all seen dozens of movies like it, but the acting and cinematography elevated it up a notch. I like it more the more the farther I get away from it.

    ^ For a couple mos def, never had Liquid Swords or Ready To Die, I wasn’t into Wu-tang or Biggie back in the day neigher were my brothers

  31. why? Says:

    No way in hell should they make another Taxi Driver movie even if Scorsese and De Niro are a part of it. Travis Bickle was a crazy dude. If some reported asked them if the rumor is true they should just say Bickle was kidnapped and killed. Shit would be ridiculous to show how Bickle is doing right now.

  32. illuminati by nature Says:

    WASHINGTON – Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro are said to be considering making a sequel to their hit 1976 movie ‘Taxi Driver’.
    According to industry gossip at the Berlin International Film Festival, the new movie is a collaboration between Scorsese and Danish director Lars Von Trier.

    Von Trier and Scorsese are yet to confirm any plans, reports Contactmusic.
    The movie will reportedly see De Niro reprise his role as troubled New York taxi driver Travis Bickle.

    However, Von Trier’s production partner Peter Aalbaek has fuelled the rumours after revealing that an announcement about the project will be made shortly.
    Meanwhile, ‘Taxi Driver’ screenwriter Paul Schrader has offered some insight into the rumoured project’s plot, revealing Scorsese has been considering a follow-up film for years. (ANI)

    **they shoulda named that joing “Blair Witch 3”, lol…IMO, “Drag me to hell” was a better story/movie, with the same basic premise..”PA” is only scary if you’re dumb enough to believe it’s real footage (thus, the Blair Witch comparison)

  72. why? Says:

    Catherine Zeta Jones sucked the good acting out of Michael Douglas and in return he got a decent wifey. Wall Street 2 seems like the movie with a good trailer and then you watch the movie and the trailer > film. Oliver Stone should be making a decent movie though.
