AdvertisementAfter breaking new boundaries in the hip hop world over the last 25 years, Lyrics Born is constantly pushing ahead with new waves of innovation. Born in Tokyo and based in the Bay Area, he has been a pioneer among Asian-American artists. The self-proclaimed "funkiest rapper alive" carries on his tradition of weaving funk and soul into classic, boom-bap hip hop on his most recent album - "Quite a Life." Lyrics Born calls upon influences such as James Brown, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins who have shaped his mentality. Coupled with his love of rap pioneers such as KRS-One, Rakim and Snoop Dogg, LB's music is the perfect hip hop and funk-flavored gumbo.
His live shows set themselves apart as he brings a full band to "keep it all the way funky" for his audience. Lyrics Born's level of hip hop mastery comes as no surprise. The talent of his band though is a whole other story. This is a full-fledged funk-rock explosion spearheaded by the superstar guitar and bass duo of Ben Misterka (Collectivity) and Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake). They're going to have the place jumping!
Opening Set by El Dub
