Lyrics Born is all brand new this year. He's got a new label under Epitaph imprint Anti, a new album, Everywhere at Once, due April 22, and a new single called “I Like It, I Love It." The single drops Feb. 19 on iTunes and Amazon. Stop complaining, it's only a dollar. Click "More" for PR words. -- ASD Staff Report


East Bay MC Lyrics Born will give fans a taste of what’s to come when he releases a digital single -- the hyper-catchy track “I Like It, I Love It” – on February 19th. It is the first single from his highly anticipated album Everywhere At Once, dropping April 22nd.

His first studio album since 2003’s Later that Day…(called “easily one of the most creative hip hop albums of the year” by, Everywhere At Once finds Lyrics Born stepping into new territory. Bored with the drum machine and over licensing rights, LB assembled a crew of top musicians and filled the record with the grooves and soul of a live band playing classic hip hop, fusing that with R ‘n B, pop and even a bit of reggaeton. Topped with Lyrics Born’s signature smooth flow, the Anti Records debut is a creative leap forward, both for LB and the genre itself.

“Blessed with an Eminem-like talent for sustained wordplay, Lyrics Born mixes club-rocking command, gruff sincerity and Southern cool,” writes Rolling Stone.

Lyrics Born has a long history of writing songs that quickly become incorporated into our cultural landscape: remember those can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head songs from Nokia and Diet Coke commercials? That’s him. “I Like It, I Love It” is no different. Infectious and uplifting, the track is an instant classic.

Check out the single “I Like It, I Love It” on February 19th on iTunes and Amazon, and catch Lyrics Born’s famously energetic and boisterous live set at 2008’s South By Southwest Music festival in Austin Texas on March 13th at Cedar St. Courtyard.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
