Finesse & Synquis

Finesse & Synquis (from Staten Island, New York) were a female rap duo from the mid 80s. Not much information is given about them, but they were signed to MCA Records.
In 1987, the duo released their first single, "Bass Game." It's unknown how or if the single ever charted at all.
A year later in 1988, Finesse & Synquis released their one and only debut album, "Soul Sisters" which managed to peak at #61 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The second single, "Soul Sisters/Soft But Deadly" was released, but didn't appear to make the charts at all, but the title song was made into a music video. The last single from the album, "I'll Be There" didn't chart.
In 1990, Finesse & Synquis released the single, "Straight From the Soul" on Uptown Records, but it didn't chart. After that, it seemed as if they faded into obscurity.
