Underground hip hop artist Lyrics Born will return to Missoula for a live concert at the Top Hat on September 26, 2018.
Lyrics Born is a rapper and producer who originally started his career in the mid 90s as one half of the hip hop duo Latryx with fellow rapper Lateef the Truthspeaker. They released their first record The Album in 1997 on the underground hip hop label Solesides.
Since then Lyrics Born has released 4 solo albums from 2003 to 2015, all receiving generally positive reviews. LB’s first album Later That Day crystallized his distinctive sound—melodic downtempo and propulsive minimalist funk, full of clean lines, tight rhythms, and bright hooks. It became one of the biggest indie records of the era, and he found himself rocking sold-out houses around the globe, including a hat trick of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella all in a single year.
Over the years, he has appeared on dozens of tracks with hundreds of artists and taken up production duties for bands like Poets of Rhythm and Galactic.
