#67 Lyrics Born

In the past decade Lyrics Born has moved through the ranks of popularity like a whirlwind. Rooted in the DJ-fusion-funk-school with performers like DJ Shadow, Jeff Chang, and Blackalicious, Lyrics Born has created a sound that is inescapably smooth. Through his 2003 hit single, "Callin' Out", from Later That Day, to his two 2005 releases, Same !@#$ Different Day and The Lyrics Born Variety Show: Season One, Lyrics Born has managed to bring his deep delivery up above the ground. Much of his rise can be credited to his smooth, often political lyrics and the funky, retro beats he spits them over. Lyrics Born sounds like Barry White on weed and Adderal, while waxing philosophically like Martin Luther King on weed and adderal channeling Colin Powell on weed and adderal. He has a gift and his gift has influenced many acts in hip-hop since his beginning.
