I am all over this. It’s 16 years since the first Latyrx album. It carried the awesome Lady Don’t Tek No, a track covered on this blog.
Once again, its quite a diverse affair from the Lyrics Born and Lateef project and they rope in some interesting guests like the superb Tune-Yards. But It’s Time is a straight up, banging hip hop track. The rapping and flows are great (particularly the immense second verse from Lyrics Born) but I could listen to the underlying track all day.
I listened to it on the drive to work this morning and when this track came on you knew it meant business. I think I may of shouted “hold tight” when the beat and bass kicked in. My stereo honestly could not get any louder. Turn it up, it’s immense.
