Lyrics Born w/ DJ Fossil
Thursday, May 30 / 9:00 pm-1:00 am
After breaking new boundaries in the hip hop world over the last 25 years, Lyrics Born is constantly pushing ahead with new waves of innovation. Born in Tokyo and based in the Bay Area, he has been a pioneer among Asian-American artists. The self-proclaimed “funkiest rapper alive” carries on his tradition of weaving funk and soul into classic, boom-bap hip hop on his new album – “Quite a Life.” Lyrics Born calls upon influences such as James Brown, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins who have shaped his mentality. Coupled with his love of rap pioneers such as KRS-One, Rakim and Snoop Dogg, LB’s music is the perfect hip hop and funk-flavored gumbo.
His live shows set themselves apart as he brings a full band to “keep it all the way funky” for his audience. Coupled with wife/singer Joyo Velarde’s powerful voice, the unrelenting energy of his performances electrify every crowd. We are immensely excited to welcome him to the Crazy Horse. Our man DJ Fossil will be adding his turntable wizardry to the evening.
