When: Sat., Feb. 15, 9 p.m. 2020
With his 2003 debut album Later That Day…, San Francisco Bay Area rapper Lyrics Born established himself as one of the fiercest voices in hip-hop. Two years later, he doubled down with an album of remixes called Same !@#$ Different Day, an amped-up reworking of his debut that also included new material. Fans at the time had likely followed the Tokyo-born artist since he broke out years earlier as one half of Latyrx, a duo with fellow freestyler Lateef the Truthspeaker. The pair reunited in 2013 to make their first collaborative album in more than 15 years. Check out Lyrics Born on Thursday, February 13, at the Pickle Barrel in Killington, or Saturday, February 15, at Club Metronome in Burlington. Local funk-hop band Juicebox add support.
