The first proper Latyrx release came in 1996, and was actually the B-side of Lateef's solo single "The Wreckoning." For the track in question, also called "Latyrx," both MCs recorded completely different raps that were played back simultaneously. Coupled with DJ Shadow's production and its unique effect, it started to build an underground buzz for the duo. More solo sides followed that year—Lateef cut "The Quickening (The Wreckoning, Pt. II)" with DJ Shadow on the boards, and Lyrics Born produced his own 12" release, "Balcony Beach" b/w "Burnt Pride." Most of these solo sides, along with a raft of new material, appeared on the duo's debut LP, Latyrx (The Album), which was released in 1997.

I’ll sit there and write a rhyme, like I’ll write a line or two and then we’ll break up who’s gonna say what, and he’ll write a line or two and we’ll break up who’s gonna say what. It’s a very organic process."

Meanwhile, Solesides was reconfigured into a new label, Quannum Projects, and the collective officially changed its name to Quannum as well.

Vocals are more prevalent on the album than on Guerrero's previous recordings, with vocal tracks from rapper Lyrics Born of Blackalicious, Quannum and Latyrx fame, and long time friend and collaborator, lo-fi and indie pop singer-songwriter Gresham Taylor, credited as Gresham for the album.
From the start the club struggled to operate a large independent venue in San Francisco. Maritime Hall had difficulty with bookings, advertising, and ticket sales, which it attributed to unfair competition from the City's premier music promoter, Bill Graham Presents. For example, Bass Ticket Outlet, the largest ticket retailer in the West Coast, refused to carry their tickets. In response, 2b1 opened its own network of 24 service charge-free outlets, with a homemade bar code printing system considered the first for a venue. Artists and talent agents who dealt with the club found themselves blacklisted from other venues. Nevertheless they were able to attract such notable acts as The Dixie Dregs, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Beastie Boys, Blackalicious, Latyrx, James Brown, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Herbie Hancock, Black Uhuru, The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Motörhead, Los Van Van, Jay-Z, Eminem, Wu-Tang Clan, Papa Roach, Incubus, Vinyl, Ozomatli, Sublime, Marty Teboe Group, Bad Religion, The String Cheese Incident, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Wyclef Jean, Goodie Mob, The Roots, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Kool Keith and Galactic. The club also hosted raves, performance art, and charity benefits, and experimented with live internet broadcasts, and kept an archive of 24-track recordings and videotapes of nearly every performance.
