Latyrx - The Album

Double Colored Vinyl w/ Bonus 7"
$29.00 $25.00

Nice and necessary 20th anniversary reissue of Latyrx's debut album. As part of the Northern California dorm rap collective Solesides (which also birthed Blackalicious and DJ Shadow), Lateef and Lyrics Born were pioneers in the second wave of rap experimentalism, exploding the strangest small elements of the old school into a bugged out imagined future. Come for the slightly dated but still overwhelming parlor tricks like rapping simultaneously with different flows in separate headphone channels, stay for the more resonant blues rap undertones.
