This is the big news you’ve all been waiting for – the announcement of the new Lyrics Born album, titled “REAL PEOPLE”!!

What better way to kick things off than with a very special crowdfunding campaign in partnership with Oxfam America.
Get all the details below and make sure to share this with everyone you know and get ready for the brand new Lyrics Born album coming soon!!

Lyrics Born has written, recorded, and performed some of the most recognizable music in the world. With a career spanning 20 years and over 500,000 units sold, he has elevated his status from innovative Hip-Hop stalwart, to iconic cultural mainstay in the modern independent music industry. LB’s steadfast commitment to uncompromising originality and earnest quality has cultivated a loyal worldwide audience of like-minded people whom share the same vision and values.

Staying true to form, Lyrics Born returns with his groundbreaking 8th album, “REAL PEOPLE”. Funky, organic, and eclectic, the appropriately entitled masterpiece is an homage to the genuine, everyday folks that inspired the album’s creation. To capture the album’s signature sound and aesthetic, LB traveled to the music Mecca of the world, New Orleans, Louisiana, enlisting Grammy-nominated producer Ben Ellman and Robert Mercurio of the Funk band, Galactic. Recorded almost entirely in New Orleans, “REAL PEOPLE” is the first of its kind, bringing together a solo Hip-Hop artist with a who’s who of legendary NOLA artists and musicians. Featured on the album is Grammy award winner Trombone Shorty, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Galactic, Corey “Boe Money” Henry (Rebirth Brass Band), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk, Neville Family), Corey Glover (Living Colour), David Shaw (The Revivalists), Billy Martin (Modeski, Martin & Wood), and many more!

We have launched the “REAL PEOPLE” IndieGoGo Campaign to not only help the grass-roots creation and promotion of the album, but to also add more meaning and value to the sharing process. Contributors experience an amazing array of perks ranging from autographed copies of “REAL PEOPLE”, out-of-print LB classics and exclusive content, VIP access to upcoming Lyrics Born appearances, PRIVATE concerts, “Breaking Bread” one-on-one with LB at a restaurant in your city, and even production and appearances from Lyrics Born on YOUR music!

But there’s more. Far, far more…

Lyrics Born has always been of the belief that music should help and heal, and in keeping with this credo, we’ve taken the “REAL PEOPLE” campaign one step further. For the first time, we’re proud to announce our partnership with the non-profit organization Oxfam America on the “REAL PEOPLE” IndieGoGo campaign. LB was so inspired by Oxfam’s humanitarian and environmental efforts in post-Hurricane Katrina, post oil-spill New Orleans and Gulf Region; he felt it was only right to give back to a place that has given the world so much.

This is how it works: 5% of every dollar you contribute to the “REAL PEOPLE” IndieGoGo campaign helps OXFAM with their efforts in New Orleans and the Gulf Region. But it doesn’t stop there. Once we reach and surpass our target goal that amount increases to 10% of every dollar pledged! So, the more you contribute, the more the impact of your pledge is felt, the more of a difference we make together, as “REAL PEOPLE”.

This is a rare opportunity to be involved not only in the grassroots creation of and promotion of awesome music and the perks that come along with it, but also a chance for “REAL PEOPLE” to affect real change in the world!

Thank you to all the good folks taking the time to get involved and contribute to the (Lyrics Born w/Oxfam “REAL PEOPLE” IndieGoGo campaign.)

Please spread the word on your blogs, websites, social networks and word of mouth, using the hashtag: #RealPeopleIGG
