Two of indie hip-hop's best live performers.

Lyrics Born founded the seminal Northern California hip-hop collective Solesides back in '92, along with DJ Shadow and Blackalicious.

As part of the burgeoning Midwestern hip hop scene, Heiruspecs first made inroads with their self-released 2002 album, Small Steps, which earned them critical praise in national and regional outlets (?Exceptional ... the rhythm that rocks the spot? - URB), and set them off on their never-ending touring schedule. In their down time, Heiruspecs has been tapped to perform as the backing band for such acts as Atmosphere, Oddjobs, Aesop Rock, Sage Francis and others, allowing the band to cement themselves as one of the premiere live hip hop bands in the nation.
