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
