LYRICS BORN: EVERYWHERE AT ONCE
Lyrics Born: Everywhere at Once
Release Date: March 18, 2008
Quannum poster-boy Lyrics Born (born Tom Shimura) didn’t just step off the ship-hop. Collaboratively producing albums as far back as Latyrx’s The Album, LB has subjectively perfected unique vocalizations characterized by buzzing baritone and vocab depth. This go LB explores the trappings of success, while reflecting on the blood, sweat & tears shed to get here. Unlike his freshman solo effort Later That Day…, he’s spent considerably less time massaging flows from track to track. And although a good four years weren’t taken to cultivate, most tracks are laden with the same electronic funk that suit him like white suits rice. Cut to the quick with “I Like It I Love It”, the standout jimmy jam among jams. On “Hott 2 Deff” LB employs indie hip-hops other more notable baritone Chali 2na (of Jurassic 5) doing both justice. Don’t be surprised if you hear LB more often in the club rather than (Coke) commercials. Everywhere At Once is new-school bump and grind, working well for everybody who wants to shake their ass.
