Lyrics Born Releases Book: Yes, Bay Area

Courtesy Nik @ Ballin PR.

Yes, Bay Area (November, $15) is a 90-page collection of two years of Tweets by Bay Area lyricist Lyrics Born. A hip-hop emcee known for his lyrical prowess, penning a book is a natural extension for LB. With his signature style & sense of humor, LB delivers Tweet after randomly hilarious Tweet with an inside edge that only a lifelong resident & native son of “The Bay” can.

Also featuring the artwork of Eddie Colla, Yes, Bay Area is as much an homage to the uniqueness of the San Francisco Bay Area as it is a coffee table book and collectors item.

(neé Tsutomu “Tom” Shimura) is a Bay Area native, and lifelong resident of Berkeley, CA. As a self-described “Slasher” he has spent the past 20 years forging a successful career as an award-winning rapper/em-singer/songwriter/producer/performer/voiceover talent, and now, author. In the 90’s he co-founded the seminal Independent record label, Quannum Projects, and has released 8 albums including “Later That Day”, “As U Were”, and “Latyrx-The Album” as ½ of the duo Latyrx alongside Lateef the Truthspeaker. His music and voice have appeared in countless movies, commercials, television shows, and video games, and he continues to be a mainstay on the worldwide touring and live festival circuit. He is currently working on his 9th full-length release, “Latyrx-The Second Album.”

In Yes, Bay Area, LB brings his insightful musings on the rich, diverse—and often quirky—culture of the San Francisco Bay Area. This book will be enjoyed by any hip-hop head or Bay Area native.
