Twenty-five years after he was introduced to the world with “Send Them” — the landmark left-field 12-inch that launched the Solesides label b/w DJ Shadow’s “Entropy” — Lyrics Born has returned with a brand new studio album (his 10th) set for release in the latter half of 2018.
It’s been a long journey from his first album, ‘Later That Day…’ but LB has not squandered a second of it. With a career spanning a quarter century and a plethora of material ranging from full-length albums, mixtapes and EPs to guest appearances, production and A&R for other artists the Asian-American rapper best known for his lyricism and that baritone voice continues to make original, quality content in a musical landscape filled with cookie-cutter acts and one-hit wonders.
Since the release of that first album Lyrics Born’s music has gone on to be heard in television commercials for major brands such as Diet Coke, Motorola and Vans, video games for Electronics Arts and Atari as well as television & film soundtracks including Entourage, True Blood, Collateral, Waiting, Friday the 13th & many others.
Over the years LB has done it all. From a voice over stint for Cartoon Network’s ‘You Are Here’ campaign to compiling a book of his best #YesBayArea tweets, this Bay Area artist continues to expand his reach beyond music and has solidified himself as a renaissance man capable of doing anything he sets his mind to.
