West Coast mainstay Lyrics Born’s roots might be in forward-thinking hip-hop, but that doesn’t mean he can’t find time to wander into different sonic territory. Anyone who’s flipped through his extensive solo and collaborative discography knows full well that dude likes to mix it up. And for his latest release — the 24-track Lyrics Born Variety Show Season 5: On The Floor — he’s jumped headfirst into the realm of boogie music.
With DJ Ice Water on mixing duties, Lyrics Born runs through boogie and 2-step versions of a slew of tracks from his discography and a bunch of exclusive new booty-shakin’ jams. The end result is 46 minutes worth of undeniable grooves and driving bass, a combination that will likely cause spontaneous dancing as soon as you throw this on.
