Latyrx - The Album
This album was not part of my underground hip-hop education...I was only introduced to it when it showed up as Allmusic's album of the day a couple of years ago. Featuring Lyrics Born, Lateef and DJ Shadow, this record sees the three pushing the boundaries of what hip-hop could be...way ahead of its time in 1997. Adventurous, exciting, and hardly in print for most of its existence, The Album is well worth your time.
