Lords of Lyrics, better known as “L.O.L.", is an American West Coast Hip Hop duo. The Los Angeles based group was formed in 1992. Group member Koop (formerly known as Shawn) is a native of South Central Los Angeles, while JP (formerly known as Swan), born in Houston, TX, moved to Los Angeles at the age of 13. The Duo met while attending Jr. High School in Los Angeles.

A short time later, two additional members, Damon "Twin" Rose and DJ Marq, joined the group. During their early years together, the group was known to frequently perform at The Good Life, which was a Health Food Store by day, and doubled as the local renowned, Thursday night open-mic, Underground Hip Hop scene by night, located on Crenshaw Boulevard and Exposition, in Los Angeles. By 1994, Lords of Lyrics emerged from the underground rap scene, performing with the likes of Cypress Hill, Too Short, Mobb Deep, Xzibit and served as opening acts for KRS-One, Brandy Norwood and IMX. Their first album debuted in August of 1994, titled "Do or Die", produced by Damon "Twin" Rose, while signed to Pyramid Records/Wilbro Records. During that time they fought to keep their careers alive through a shady record deal and faulty management. In 1996, Lords of Lyrics was picked up by Franchise Records, where their second full-length album, "Heaven or Hell" was released, but only in Europe.

The album was executive produced by D.J. Slip from Compton's Most Wanted and NBA Superstar, Stanley Roberts, then center for the Los Angeles Clippers and CEO of Franchise Records. L.O.L. is best known for their single, "Summer Breeze" and for "Boom Boom Crack", featured in the 1996 Hollywood movie, and on the Soundtrack of "The Last Days of Frankie the Fly", starring Kiefer Sutherland, Dennis Hopper and Daryl Hannah. After a short stint with Franchise Records, the label was shut down due to unknown personal legal issues involving Stanley Roberts, leaving L.O.L. in the cold.

Shortly afterward, the group parted ways. Lords of Lyrics members, Koop and "J.P.", have since reunited, now working under the independent label, LynnByrd Music LLC, with their new album, "The Redemption", due to be released in 2009.
