Lyrics Born Later That Day
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: Quannum Projects
Former Latyrx MC Lyrics Born has built a funhouse of funk called Later That Day, melding hip-hop backbeats with soul shine, funk grit and straight up rock. Lyrics Born twists his unique voice over and around the rhythms, bouncing from West Coast straight rhymes to dancehall toasting to triple-time spoken word. A rocket opening peaks with the tremendous anthem "Callin' Out" and yields to a slow spot of dull skits, but his team-up with Lateef the Truth Speaker on the slow-build vamp "Last Trumpet" recovers the momentum nicely. A bit more of the other Quannum MCs would have been great, but Lyrics Born has enough variety in his head and in his voice to carry the day.
