Lateef and Lyrics Born are Latyrx, two Bay Area-based Solesides O.G.s who helped redefine hip-hop alongside DJ Shadow and Blackalicious in '90s. But in all of this time, they'd only recorded a single album (1997's The Album) together, instead spreading their skills liberally across other projects. Enter The Second Album, out November 5 featuring an incredible array of talent ranging from left-field rhymer Busdriver, to MPC kingpin Jel, to the Decemberists' Chris Funk, to Living Colour singer Corey Glover (really).

Below you can hear the bewitchingly hypnotic "Watershed Moment," which features not only an ace verse from Quannum compatriot Gift of Gab, but production (and additional vocals) from tUnE-yArDs. Stream that aptly titled track, check Latyrx's tour schedule here, and see if you can't add a few more dates to it via Kickstarter.
