MY FAVORITE MICS With Mr. Lif 

Boston born and raised, Mr. Lif is one of the original members of the indie hip-hop movement known as Definitive Jux (2000-2007). He’s the vocalist for Thievery Corporation (2010-present) and a spellbinding lyricist raising the bar on rap’s poetic form.

MAKE & MODEL

Lawson L47 Custom & Shure SM7b

WHAT THEY MEAN TO YOU

The custom Lawson L47 was the first mic I ever had built for me. The SM7b…I never leave home without. It records clearly without picking up room noise. Hotel rooms are vocal booths to me because of this mic.

WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE

The Lawson L47 custom sounds clinical and precise. Equivalent to a scalpel for surgery. The Shure? Nothing flashy. Just professional, rounded, and real.

CUSTOM MODS

The LifMod.

CAN BE HEARD ON

My new album Don’t Look Down features both of these mics. The custom Lawson L47 can be heard on the lead single “Whizdom” and the Shure SM7b was used to record myself and Del the Funky Homosapien on the song “World Renown.”
