ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Lyrics Born's rhymes showcase a large vocabulary, deployed via regular use of complex rhyming technique, such as phonemes and internal rhyme. His style, which is influenced by groups like Sugar Hill Gang and Ice Cube is often conversational and observant. Songs such as "Before and After" explore the subtleties of day-to-day human relations while "The Last Trumpet" (with Lateef) features a very politically charged and globally conscious mindset.

Lyrics Born has collaborated with many artists including DJ Shadow, Blackalicious, Jurassic 5, DJ Z-Trip (on the 2005 song "The Get Down"), Diverse (on the song "Explosive"), Tommy Guerrero, R. L. Burnside (on the song "Someday Baby"), Morcheeba, Zion I, Mistah F.A.B., The Altered Egos, and Pigeon John. He was instrumental in the signing of Pigeon John to Quannum in 2005 and executive produced and A&R'd the first album from Pigeon John on Quannum Projects, Pigeon John and the Summertime Pool Party, which was released in 2006. He is also producing the debut album from Joyo Velarde and released his fourth album on Epitaph Records in conjunction with his own Quannum Projects.
