MC LYTE

MC LYTE

PRNewswire-USNewswire—MC Lyte’s “LEGEND” album, her first in over eleven years, merges the classic sound of what made her initially popular together with the new, edgy, compelling sounds of the 21st century.

Together with the assembly of 10 amazing musicians, this project puts the edge, truth and melody back into hip-hop.

From hard hitting kicks and snares that represent the genre of Hip Hop to the new pad sounds and synths that take the listener beyond this moment and the heavy bass lines that give way for Lyte’s showcase of pure lyricism, LEGEND is a perfect combination of what WAS and what IS and it’s ALL MC Lyte…current but still way ahead of her time.
