Lyrics Born “REAL PEOPLE” Music Video Premiere

October 8th, 2015

What’s crackin’ my L-Beezies?!!

Today we just released another video off of the album Real People. This one is for the title track and features a gang of cameos from a lot of my friends, fans and fam! My dude James Gunn is on there, my girl Merrill from tUnE-yArDs, the homie Sung Kang, my man Russell Peters, Adrian Younge, the Bay Area’s own Zion-I and DJ Cutso are on there, Galactic, Joey Guila, Evan Jackson Leong, Joyo Velarde and many more!

We had so many entries we couldn’t fit everyone in but I wanna personally thank all of you who sent us a clip for the video. It was a lot of fun to put together. The video concept was the brain child of none other than my better half, Joyo Velarde who co-directed the video along with my man Justin Berger of HKL Films.

The video just dropped on URB.com so make sure you check it right now by clicking on the image below:

“Watershed Moment” ft The Gift of Gab & tUnE-yArDs premieres via SPIN.com

October 25th, 2013

Yesterday, SPIN.com leaked a new track off of ‘The Second Album’ — “Watershed Moment”.

Check out SPIN’s comments below and listen to the track now!

LATYRX (Lyrics Born + Lateef) “Watershed Moment” feat The Gift of Gab (produced by tUnE-yArDs) by latyrx

Lateef and Lyrics Born are Latyrx, two Bay Area-based Solesides O.G.s who helped redefine hip-hop alongside DJ Shadow and Blackalicious in ’90s. But in all of this time, they’d only recorded a single album (1997’s The Album) together, instead spreading their skills liberally across other projects. Enter The Second Album, out November 5 featuring an incredible array of talent ranging from left-field rhymer Busdriver, to MPC kingpin Jel, to the Decemberists’ Chris Funk, to Living Colour singer Corey Glover (really).

You can hear the bewitchingly hypnotic “Watershed Moment,” which features not only an ace verse from Quannum compatriot Gift of Gab, but production (and additional vocals) from tUnE-yArDs. Stream that aptly titled track, check Latyrx’s tour schedule here, and see if you can’t add a few more dates to it via Kickstarter.
