Lateef The Truthspeaker may not be a household name, but his roots are deep. The California based artist made his first major move in music when he founded Solesides back in 1991. The collective, featuring artists such as DJ Shadow, Lyrics Born, and Blackalicious, eventually evolved into what we now know as Quannum Projects.

Over the years he's worked with artists like Fat Boy Slim and Z-Trip, and outside of his solo work he acts as half of the duo Latryx. His next move is a new album called FireWire, due in November. The project will feature some of the friends Lateef has made over the long span of his music career, and this is the first single. Listen below.
