Since redefining lyricism in 1996 on Latyrx with Lateef the Truth Speaker on DJ Shadow’s Quannum Records, Lyrics Born has been secretly slaying small minds worldwide. He’s four solo albums deep already. He joins Chali 2na to scorch the disco-riffic collabo Hott To Deff, while Everywhere At Once tries to be just that.
These 18 selections feel like the intersection where Del tha Funky Homosapien meets Parliament, while Lyrics offers life-affirming couplets in his comedic drawl. He’s still expanding his vocal range, but this hour of soulful, sugary funk will accompany your summer parties quite well.
