Lyrics Born
The one-and-only Lyrics Born, the Quannum MC whose career, spanning from the 1996 release The Album, to 2008's Everywhere at Once, just put out a brand new mixtape titled The Lyrics Born Variety Show: Season Pho (4!). The mixtape comes as he finishes up his fourth studio album, As U Were, and is available as a digital download only at

The mixtape – fourth in The Lyrics Born Variety Show series – features LB, along with some his best friends (including Dan the Automator, Lateef the Truthspeaker, and Gift of Gab), on 22 tracks, includes "Pushed Aside, Pulled Apart" and "Funky Hit Records" – both sneak peeks from his upcoming album.

Still, Lyrics Born has found time to be on tour all this month! Having just appeared at the Rothbury Festival as part of the Quannum All-Stars, the rapper will hit up festivals in Colorado, British Columbia, and his native California, including a hometown appearance at San Francisco's coveted Stern Grove Festival on July 26, which he curated and will be headlining.
