The bad boy from Bridgeport, CT—accomplished attorney, loving father, and prodigious rapper daFinchi shows us what degrees, dedication, and hard work get you in his new single and music video, "Go For Mine."
Not every day do you see a promising hip-hop act that reintroduces us to the genre through a post-grad lens. He's a talented lyrical lawyer with bars that tie into the various facets of his life, from raising his daughter and making a living at the office to his passionate craft as an MC, dead set on his mission to speak the truth.
More recently, daFinchi released his exciting new single and braggadocious music video for "Go For Mine," which sees him posing on the cover of various high-profile magazines, keeping the cash flowing, and showing us what took him from 0 to 100.
The song itself is incredibly catchy. "Go For Mine" is crawling with infectious synth melodies and driving hip-hop drums reminiscent of hits from staple acts like Post Malone. His quick-witted and charismatic bars tie in his signature self-deprecating humor while feeding us taglines from his law firm like, "In a pinch, call Finch!"
The music video continues that humorous (yet serious) theme of watching daFinchi reap the rewards of his degrees, work, and talent. His classic boss poses with thumbs up or arms in the air are sure to make you crack a smile, not taking him too seriously, but very seriously at the same time. At the end of the day, daFinchi's unique approach to hip-hop changes how we view the genre.

What was your experience shooting the dynamic and glamorous music video for "Go For Mine?"
It was a quick shoot at this cool studio in New Haven, CT, but I had to change my wardrobe like ten times in 3 hours. How did your director and producer help execute your vision? Director Mike Squires had a great vision and the skills to pull it together in the edit. Maserati Rai produced it. He always finds the right location.

If I can inspire anyone, it's a win-win situation. I let the listener and the viewer appreciate the project however he/she wants to. It's all love.
