LYRICS BORN Later That Day... (Quannum) Rating: NNN
Latyrx emsinger Lyrics Born attempts to craft the first-ever backpack hiphop disc that won't cause headz to nod off, and clearly he's serious about it. On Later That Day he boosts the musical component and the sexy backing vocals while downplaying the quirky indulgences for a remarkably entertaining session. If he only had the sense to ditch the skits, the dated sample intros and use the Poets of Rhythm on more than just the bonus track, Later That Day might've found an audience beyond the people who buy Cut Chemist videos. Lyrics Born joins Ugly Duckling, Grouch & Eligh, Pigeon John and Abstract Rude at the Opera House Saturday (November 8).
