HipHopDX Premiere: Veteran Bay Area MC Lyrics Born is back with a new single titled “Is It Worth It.” Featuring Del The Funky Homosapien and singer Forrest Day, the track finds LB lamenting the music industry and questioning his place in it.
“I was going thru a rough patch, was super drunk off cheap saké one night and had this ‘fuck the industry’ moment because I felt tired of being excluded,” LB tells HipHopDX. “I wrote the shit outta that song. The track had a Gorillaz-esque vibe to it, so I called up Del for the bridge and voila.
“A week later I was just as drunk off Grey Goose, called up the homie Forrest Day who felt it rite away. Two rappers, two empty bottles and one great singer brought this nightmare to life.”
“Is It Worth It” comes from LB’s forthcoming album Quite A Life, which features Blackalicious’ The Gift Of Gab, Aloe Blacc, Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na and more. The project is expected to arrive on September 14.
