It’s been 17 years between albums for the Bay Area alt-rap duo Latyrx. Oakland-born Lateef Daumont is a Black Panther’s son who raps as Lateef the Truthspeaker, while Tokyo-born Tom Shimura, a banker’s son, raps as Lyrics Born. In 1996, they collaborated on The Album, a gorgeous and contemplative record. Then, they went their solo ways for almost two decades. Now, finally, they’ve brought forth what is hands-down the alt-rap album of the year. Read the full story at NPR.org.
