It's been 15 years since Bay Area duo Latyrx released their eponymous debut album — which they've yet to follow up. Not that they've been slacking off: Individually, Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truth Speaker have been dropping new music non-stop for the past decade and a half, in the form of solo albums, one-off projects, and collaborations with other artists from their former Solesides crew (reborn as Quannum), including DJ Shadow and Blackalicious. Lateef's latest solo album, 2011's Firewire, isn't stopping him from hooking back up with LB for some Latyrx reunion gigs, including this one-night stand at the Independent.

The Independent says…

Cited as one of the most influential, original and innovative hip-hop groups of the late 90's, Latyrx was infamous for their creative style and unique rhymes and phrasing.
