The Lyrics Born Variety Show Season 6 Mixtape Pre-Sale!

October 14th, 2014

LB here,

First off, I want to say THANK YOU to all my L-Beezies out there who continue to ride wit me through every album release.
Y’all are what keeps this thing movin’ and without y’all I wouldn’t be here now.

That being said, as most of you already know I have a new album coming out early next year called “Real People”. As I always do before any new album release, I’m dropping a brand new mixtape later this month.

Brought to you by Mobile Home Recordings in collaboration with Room 389, The Lyrics Born Variety Show Season 6 will hit digital shelves October 28th, 2014 and be available physically only at the merch booth at my shows.


Each of these Variety Show mixtapes are very special to me as they reflect not only my collaborations with other artists over the past few years, but also a chance to record special exclusives that just don’t fit anywhere else.
Season 6 is no different as I’ve got some exclusive music on there w/ the Bay Area’s own, The Bangerz and an exclusive Latyrx track w/ none other than my Quannum brother Lateef the Truthspeaker! Other artists you’ll hear include Pretty Lights, The Gift of Gab, tUnEyArDs & many more!
As if that wasn’t enough, LBVS6 features remixes you won’t hear anywhere else by the homie DJ Icewater who meticulously mixed this, and most of my past mixtapes.
But what’s most special to me about this mixtape is that it features 3 brand new songs off of my forthcoming album, “Real People”!
It’s the first chance for y’all to hear what I’ve been working on since “As U Were” & Latyrx.

Boasting a whopping 26 tracks, this is the mixtape y’all have been waiting for:
