A milestone effort from Bay Area veteran Lyrics Born – who has been delivering rock solid funky soul-steeped hip hop solo, with his Latyrx duo, and as a producer for well over 20 years by this point – and still delivering the goods after all these years! He's been leaning more on gritty funk & soul influences as the years pass, thanks to this super charismatic, slightly raspy voice, which lends itself so well to the style. It's only gotten more endearing, if you ask us! Guests include his wife Joyo Verlande, Del, Aloe Blacc, Galactic, Chali 2na and more – and titles include "Chocolate Cake", "When I Get My Check" feat Chali 2na, Gift Of Gab & Joyo Verlande, "Clap Your Hands (If You Know You're Beautiful)", "Same But Different" feat Sister Sparrow, "Don't Quit Your Daydream", "Trouble Trouble Trouble" feat Joyo Verlande, "In Case Of Fire" feat Galactic & Kelly Finnigan
of Monophonics, a nice cover of JB's "This Is A Man's World?" that casts in the contemporary cultural light, "Is It Worth It" feat Del Tha Funkee Homosapien & Forrest Day, "Can't Lose My Joy" feat Aloe Blacc & Baby I Made It" feat Trey Privott of Lost Coast.
