songs everyone should own: latyrx – lady don’t tek no

Latyrx were a rap duo that emerged in the late nineties that dropped some serious flavor out of the Bay Area scene.  Consisting of Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truth Speaker, Latyrx had some moderately successful hits under their belt, except this little nugget of brilliance that slipped under the radar off of the now infamous Muzappers Mixes EP.  That’s DJ Shadow on  production as well!

It was all on the legendary Solesides label, which would later morph into Quannum Projects, and represents a beat heavy simplicity that is missing from hip hop these days.
