Live hip-hop albums are a rarity these days, but if any MC deserves one, it’s Lyrics Born. Few have learned how to engage a crowd like the fiery-voiced LB, and the two Australian shows recorded for Overnite Encore absolutely capture the energy of his sets. With his lady Joyo Velarde on back-up vocals and a four-piece funk band on the beats, LB tromps through classics (“Lady Don’t Tek No”) and newer material (“I’m Just Raw”) with undying vigor and a ton of call-and-response-as close to a Lyrics Born show you’re gonna get without actually being there.
