One of my favorite chill-out songs to come out this decade is Lyrics Born's Bad Dreams. The Bay area independent rap legend's song soothes my soul every time I spin it. Although it's been a bit quiet on the LB front as of late, the dude is back, and he's got a brand new single in anticipation of his next album, As U Were, which is due out this fall.
While most of his previous works had been based on a unique hip-hop foundation, the rapper's latest effort finds him in an alternatively-tinged synth-rock world. Lies X 3 pairs Lyrics Born's signature raspy singing style with a fresh new sound that's got me getting down all afternoon.
Definitely a hot one for the summer. Play this poolside, but first, don't forget to invite me to your swimming soirée, mmkay?
As U Were will be out October 26 via Decon.
