Coming straight from the premier league of hip-hop MC's 5am is proud to bring you the anticipated NZ debut of lyrical wonder, Lyrics Born. With 3 albums on his own Quaanum projects under his belt, this musical maverick has collaborated with a who's who of Bay Area luminaries. DJ Shadow, Blackalicious, E-40, Dilated Peoples and the Roots, a sure sign of Lyrics Born's pedigree and ability to rock the mic with conscious flows over bottom' end bangers.

With his hip-hop genealogy extending back to the golden era of hip hop, Born launched seminal label Solesides, marking the arrival of labels like Stones Throw and Hieroglyphics, firmly cementing the San Francisco Underground as a force to be reckoned with. Not afraid to mix it up, Born's vision ropes in reggae, rock, rnb, soul and funk, blending styles with ease and redefining what good hip hop should be.
A certified West Coast legend armed with rhymes spanning the poetic to the political and riding the beat like a futuristic conductor, Lyrics Born is set to get hips swinging and backs cracking.

Having blown up stateside and ransacked Europe, Asia, North and South America with his live shows, eschewing push button karaoke in favour of a four piece live band, Lyrics Born elevates his studio based vision into an all out, stonking, funk fuelled odyssey.

This is NZ's only chance to witness a man, an artist and an MC at the top of his game.
