Lyriq f/ Caleb James “Weekend”….
Chicago Stand Up!
Lyriq & Caleb James speak directly to the ladies with “Weekend”! Man woes? Shake that sh*t off, you now have your freedom—hit the club, party hard; what happens after that is no one’s business.
Lyriq’s Book Of Lyriqs 2 will be released in May 2014 and features appearances from Caleb James, GLC and production from Chase N Cashe & Reno.
Hailing from Chicago, Lyriq discovered his passion for music at the tender age of five. He would rap and sing in front of local barbershop and grocery stores to raise money for studio time, “I would raise about $50.00 a day” states Lyriq. By the time he was nine; he’d successfully produced his first track and was discovered by Willie Taylor of Making The Bands Day 26.
Lyriq is no stranger to the obstacles that come with being a recording artist. He’s already been a member of 4 groups and signed to 3 different labels—with the latter being to Ludacris DTP imprint. After five-years with DTP, Lyriq was forced forced to part ways with the label due to lack of financial support, causing his group, B.X.C. to halt as well. During that time B.X.C. toured extensively playing in front of hundred thousands of fans.
Sixteen years after he produced his first track, Lyriq refuses to let his fire dwindle and he has harnessed each experience and obstacle to prepare him for the next phase of his career “I believe music is the voice of the world, and I only want to be heard” Lyriq asserts.
Lyriq most recent features include guest vocals for the likes of Twista and Lil Scrappy and he has toured with Ke$ha, 2 Chainz, Wale, Big Sean and Wiz Khalifia and his debut mixtape “I Am Lyric” (2013) featured Sir Michael Rocks, YP, Chris James and production from C-Sick
