Known for his lightening-quick rhyhmes, minimalist grooves, reimagined electro, East Bay greasy funk, devoluted punk, futurist dancehall and postmodern blues, Lyrics Born is an artist who is not interested in the limits set by the market or even his past triumphs. He seemlessly blends styles and defies categorization, redefining what a good hip-hop album should be. He brings us boundless funk and head-nodding bliss!
Lyrics Born averages over 150 shows a year, and his explosive live energy was captured on Overnite Encore, a compilation of live performances with live musicians from the Australian leg of his 2006 world tour. He followed up in 2008 with Everywhere At Once, a varied studio disk that signaled a departure from the sample-based pieces he had become known for, supplementing the sound with a full band and a healthy does of synthesizers. Hence, he has arrived at well-rounded sound that is classic and yet futuristic with his latest album, As U Were.
