  • Throughout the 18 tracks of his thorough sophomore release, Bay Area lyricist Lyrics Born does his best to be EVERYWHERE AT ONCE--as the beats (courtesy of Jake One, Amp Live, Trackademics, and LB himself) dabble in everything from old-school rap, electro, 1970s soul, and G-Funk to contemporary R&B, pop, and jazz. By refusing to assign himself to any specific style within the hip-hop genre, Lyrics Born is able to transcend it. The end result is a well-rounded effort that succeeds in its many endeavors, appealing to all kinds of music fans while never sounding derivative. LB outdoes Snoop's gangsta drawl on one track and then channels Marvin Gaye on the next. Honest, introspective, and eclectic, EVERYWHERE AT ONCE is among the best hip-hop albums of 2008.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.162) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a fun album, full of off-kilter, electro-tinged grooves."

CMJ - "Shimura's chief asset as a rapper will always be his voice, which manages to be both laid back and authoritative, while still nimble enough to navigate around the trickiest of beats."

Vibe (p.76) - "[O]n his second solo album, he sounds transformed -- festive and celebratory, his smarts undiminished."

Harp (magazine) (p.114) - "He's still got that quicksilver, deep-throated flow, which comes at us over bouncy backing that's mostly live instrumentation this time."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[L]ikeably unpretentious, and the best parts of EVERYWHERE AT ONCE show Lyrics Born as a sort of lighthearted yet substantially energetic vocal presence at the center of a big, shameless funk record."

URB (Magazine) (p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] dashboard-rattling bass thump....Triumphant lead single 'I Like It, I Love It' sees LB at the top of the game..."
