Latyrx (The Album)
Label: Quannum Projects
This groundbreaking effort from Bay Area duo Latyrx (Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truth Speaker) took conventional hip-hop rules and tossed them out the window. Highly complex wordplay meets severely tweaked production from DJ Shadow and Chief Xcel, resulting in a landmark album from the always interesting Quannum camp. Check out "Say That" and "The Wreckoning."
