"Taking a new approach to recording, LB threw in everything but the kitchen sink on this one. Whether it was hiring horn and keyboard arrangers for specific songs and parts or bringing in the right MC or musician for the right song, LB took his time (not as much time as Later That Day of course) and the result is some of the best Lyrics Born music to date," reads a message posted on his official website, LyricsBorn.com. Guests on the album include Chali 2na, RJD2 and, of course, his wife and longtime collaborator Joyo Velarde.
In related news, sterling vocalist Joyo Velarde will finally release an album of her own after years spent with the Quannum crew. Love and Understanding is scheduled to drop in the spring, and Lyrics Born handles production.
The track listing for Everywhere at Once is below.
Canadian rap prodigy Cadence Weapon is preparing to release his new album, Afterparty Babies.
Set for release on March 4, Afterparty Babies is the first effort from Cadence Weapon’s new deal with Anti-/Epitaph Records. (The label reissued his 2005 debut, Breaking Kayfabe, last year). "Afterparty Babies explores friends and feelings, crews and club nights, hometowns and heroes, media and fashion. The recognized wordsmith continues to push the theme, surrounded by socially conscious commentary, and personal subject matter while dropping it over punishing electronic dance jams," reads the press release for the album.
While you wait for those "punishing electronic dance jams" to manifest themselves, check out the track listing below.
