“Real people do real things. Real people live real lives.”
That’s the hook for Lyrics Born’s latest, the title track from his recent album Real People. The premiere for video takes its inspiration from LB’s wife Joyo Verlarde, who also happens to have co-directed the video with Justin Berger of HKL Films. Through a collection of videos from fans, family and friends, the supporting cast compliment LB by by lip-syncing the hook, dancing and just having a grand ol’ time.
The video features an assortment of cameos including film director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards), actor Sung Kang (Fast & Furious franchise), producer Adrian Younge, comedian Russell Peters, filmmaker Evan Jackson Leong, Bay Area rapper Zion I, Bay Area DJ Cutso, Galactic and many others.
For you local Bay Area fans, you can catch a Lyrics Born’s performance tomorrow at The New Parish with Ellman & Mercurio. Also on the bill are Real People guest artist Corey Henry aka Bo Money, Jazz Mafia, DJ Shortkut, Joyo Velarde and possibly other special surprises.
