Lyrics Born Biography

Groundbreaking, charismatic, stylish, distinctive - these are just some of the words that have been used to describe Lyrics Born. With a career spanning over a decade, Lyrics Born began as an underground MC who while in college at UC Davis met up with fellow Bay Area artists DJ Shadow, Blackalicious and Lateef The Truth Speaker. This tight knit crew joined forces with famed author Jeff Chang and MTV producer Joseph Patel to form the seminal independent label, Solesides. In 1997, SoleSides released Lyrics Born's first full length debut with Lateef entitled Latyrx: The Album. With the success of Latyrx, LB and co. reinvented the model for independent hip-hop record labels, as the album went on to sell 100,000 copies worldwide.


Totaling the sum of all his albums, guest appearances, production and executive production in all formats, Lyrics Born has achieved nearly one million units sold -- making him one of the best selling independent hip-hop solo artists of our time. He has risen from an underground MC to a major Hip-Hop icon on the national and international touring circuit, and has earned the reputation as one of the most exciting and consistent in the game. He is currently recording his 4th album titled "Everywhere at Once", due out in February of 2008 through Epitaph records. Lyrics Born most recently joined forces with Velvet Hammer Music and Management Agency as well as CAA, one of the largest and most powerful talent and literary agencies in the business. This, combined with an exciting new web presence via an interactive video blog called LBTV, an internet street team and consistent updates all through his Official website, and his Official Myspace as well as plans for a new world tour, Lyrics Born continues to move forward with a music and media career that - much like his fanbase - continues to grow in leaps and bounds. "We're still a guitar-oriented band. There are fans that no matter what we put out are going to say it doesn't sound like the '90s and that's a fair assessment because it doesn't. I don't wear the same clothes I did in the '90s. We don't want to be that kind of band" says Roland.
