Lord Finesse "World Series: Out The Blue" (Mixtape, 1996)

In the 1996 World Series, the Yankees beat the NL champion Atlanta Braves. After losing the first two games, they came back to win four consecutive games and became the first team to lose the first two games at home and win the Series. At the time, it was their 23rd World Series title but their first since 1978 (the year I was born!). That said, this is Lord Finesse's 1996 mixtape, "World Series - Out the Blue, Volume 1." It kicks off with a championship intro at Yankee Stadium, which suffice to say, hooked me out the gate! The rest of the mix includes joints from the Artifacts, M.O.P., PMD, Natural Elements, Dr. Dre, The Firm, Money Boss Players, Wu-Tang, Fat Joe, Sadat X, Ghostface Killah and, of course, joints from Lord Finesse.
