An Unjust World, Exhibit C: MC Lyte
MC Lyte, Lyte as a Rock (1988)
MC Lyte, Eyes on This (1989)
She stepped onto the scene with a bang. 1988. Enter 2006. Where is the Lyte? She paved the way for Rah Digga, Missy, and Queen. Notice, I didn't mention Kim, Jackie-O, Foxy Brown, Khia, etc. They paved the way for themselves.
She released a Premo treat, Wonder Years, recently. One can only hope she is currently creatin some fire in the studio. The following albums represented her best work. 10% Dis is pure B-girl bliss:
You are what I label as a, nerver plucker
You're pluckin my nerves, you MC sucka
I thought I oughta tell you, better yet warn
That I am like a stop, and my word is Bond
like James, killin everybody in sight
The code's three-six, the name is Lyte
After this jam, I really don't give a damn
Cause I'ma run and tell your whole damn clanthat you're a
Beat biter! Dope style taker!Tell you to your face you ain't nuttin but a faker!
