With over two decades of hard work and constant production as an artist in the more obscure reaches of hip hop, Lyrics Born has added another album to his ever growing discography, “Now Look What You’ve Done, Lyrics Born!” This time around, the self-styled ‘Funk 4 The Future’ artist has complied a collection of 16 tracks into a greatest hits album to prove, once again, that he’s a heavyweight in the underground scene. Brought to life with a Kickstarter campaign, the album features collaborations with the likes of the Cut Chemist, KRS-One, Dan the Automator and of course Lateef the Truthspeaker. Full of smooth, funky bass lines and catchy drum beats, this is the album to get any new listeners into the artist, and a sure winner with fans looking for a curated collection of his epic catalogue. “Callin’ Out,” “Bad Dreams,” “I’m Just Raw” and “PackUp [Remix] ft. Evidence, KRS-One” hit in succession to hold down the early going of the compilation and nicely tour the listener through some serious highlight material of LB’s career. With his baritone rasp and creative forays that push the bounds of hip hop into a blend of R&B and funk, Lyrics Born is an artist worth checking out.Lyrics Born, Now Look What You’ve Done Lyrics Born!
