A crucial founding member of the Northern Cali-birthed Solesides / Quannum collective – which
included DJ Shadow and Blackalicious, among others – and one half of the groundbreaking Latyrx
duo (with Lateef The Truthspeaker), Lyrics Born opened a lot of ears and minds with his 2003 solo
debut, Later That Day….
On this very open-minded and chiefly self-produced long player, Lyrics Born and his crew
(including Joyo Velarde, on vocals; guitarist Tommy Guerrero and Germany’s funk masters Poets
of Rhythm) bring it from the funk side, boasting a warm soul stew instead of colder drum
machine-based beats and chopped samples.
As shown since his earliest days, the incredibly versatile Lyrics Born mixes his flow up depending
on the track, from tongue-twistingly fast to conversationally mundane, and concepts are usually at
the forefront – “Cold Call” is an amusing take on telemarketers, featuring Gift of Gab; “Before And
After” is about friends growing apart; “Bad Dreams” is a groovy apocalyptic shaker. The infectious
“Callin’ Out” rides the party train and “Stop Complaining” timeshares between funny and serious.
“Do That There” features DJ Cut Chemist with liquid cuts that work around LB’s verbal floor
routine.
And even after all of the other musical fireworks, the album’s crescendo most assuredly comes on
track eleven, “The Last Trumpet”: operatically dramatic and powerful, with Lyrics Born and
Latyrx-mate Lateef trading verses like “the only action / we can profit from / is movement towards
/ the positive / progressive thought / that’s rooted up / in consciousness” at breakneck pace.
Presented for its 15th Anniversary as a 2-LP set, on colored vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with
in-depth liner notes by renowned author and journalist Jeff Chang (who also helped found the
Solesides movement in the early ‘90s), plus a 11”x17” poster of the amazing cover art, this is a
perfect way to re-introduce this classic to a new era of fans – present and future.
