Today is a HUGE day for us here at LB HQ!

A BRAND NEW single from LATYRX has just hit the web.

I’m sure most of you know how mega-big this news is. Lyrics Born & Lateef the Truthspeaker have re-united to form the mighty Latyrx.
You heard the mixtape, Latyrical Madness Vol 1, you saw them at Outside Lands last year in San Francisco, you’ve seen and heard the track “Hardship Enterprise” off of Lateef’s latest album — but this is OFFICIALLY the first studio single from LATYRX in 15 years. Produced by Headnodic and featuring guest appearances from Boots Riley & Karyn Paige.

The best part? It’s available right now FOR FREE!!!
So don’t hesitate, don’t wait, don’t meditate on what you should do next — click the link to download the single right now…


And for those of you who are too impatient to even wait for the file to download, you can listen to the song below instantly (don’t you just love technology?):

And of course, catch Latyrx @ SXSW this weekend!

What’s up, L-Beezies?!
Welcome to the new and improved!!!

Designed by Jonathan Remulla at Supafrenz and built by Team LB’s programming extraordinaires, Kleinschmit, Beane and Johnston, we’ve got a brand new look and style just in time for the new Lyrics Born album, AS U WERE, dropping 10.26.10 on Mobile Home and Decon.
We’re still updating a few things including a brand new LBFM and LB Downloads Store — but don’t let that stop you from lookin’ around at all the cool new sights and sounds!

Co-inciding with the new site is the launch of the AS U WERE pre-orders available exclusively at The Lyrics Born Variety Store!
Each pre-order of the CD also gets a digital download of the album. Also, stay tuned for an exclusive bundle pack we’ve got coming VERY soon!

The buzz about AS U WERE has been craaaaaaaaaaazy!!!
The single “Lies X 3” has been flyin’ up the charts and has hit #1 on and #2 on Rapnetwork Record Breakers and y’all have been pushin’ it up the charts in so many cities — THANK YOU!
The video is coming VERY SOON!!!

LB has been leakin’ the new record to a few people for some feedback and it has been hott bizness all across the board!
Check out what some of the homies are sayin’ about AS U WERE:

@Headnodic: “We Live By The Beat” “Coulda Shoulda Woulda” & “Oh Baby!” r my fav joints on this new @lyricsborn. Buy #ASUWERE 10/26′

@Tap10: I’m spinning “Coulda Shoulda Woulda” tonight, that’s the one right now!’

@realGiftofGab: #ASUWERE is LP OF THE YEAR!’

@GKoop: Bumpin this new @lyricsborn today. Shits kinda bangin!! Don’t sleep!! #ASUWERE.’

@DNAEBeats: xtra fonky my rellish! #ASUWERE’

On top of that we’ve got some great feedback from Filter Magazine as well as the SF Examiner – check it:

FILTER Magazine:

‘UC-Berkeley graduate Tom Shimura, who has been making sophisticated hip-hop as Lyrics Born for well over a decade, is one of those rare talents that has the ability to turn just about everything he touches into pure audible gold. He’s never really made or been part of a substandard record and the Bay Area MC’s newest album, As U Were, is no exception.’

SF Examiner:

‘With a career spanning over a decade, Lyrics Born is truly an indie music champion. He has continually turned out hits whether he’s riding solo, as a member of Latryx with fellow emcee Lateef, or as the co founder of Quannum records; the label he created with DJ Shadow, Gift of Gab and Lateef.’

If that wasn’t enough LB has gettin’ lots of love from y’all on the new singles “Lies X 3” and “Pushed Aside/Pulled Apart”, as well as the leak, “Something Better” feat. Francis and The Lights:

“I’ve been playing that ‘Pushed Aside’…ill…simply ill.” – Charlie Smash

“Like like LIKE!!! Cannot f’in wait for this album.” – Jen Moxley

“I love the song. I’m listening to it now.” – Sara Rollins

“Yes LB push things forward!!!” – Simon Todd
