“Get Heard or Die Tryin‘”-2007
“Transmittin’ Live The Radio EP!” -June 2009
In 2000, The Lyricists released their debut album titled “Outta Nowhere“, in reference to their location in Michigan (Port Huron). After working hard to get their name known and promoting themselves, The Lyricists dropped their second release in 2003 titled “Anti-Industry”. The title opposing the virtual machine which controls the state of hip-hop on a commercial level was the inspiration and motivation to their direction and sound they created.
The groups next release, “L3” (’05), short for level 3, symbolizes their third time around on a professional production together as artists who continue to elevate.

Seldom do I want to kick my own ass for not hearing artists before I actually do. This is one of the instances I want to. They’re just mega dopeness. Beats, lyrics, the entire package. I can listen to entire joints, which as I’ve said before is a rarity. Once again, I fucks with them heavy! WOOOO!!! Peep for Self!
