MC Lyte Dropping Legend Album In Vinyl!!!
The iconic “Ruffneck” rapper MC Lyte Dropping Legend Album In Vinyl, her return to hip hop after an eleven year hiatus from music.
Lyte is one of our favorite people, so we are excited to hear that she is back with her new album Legend, merging the classic sound of what made her popular in the beginning together with the new, edgy, compelling sounds of the 21st century.
On April 18, 2015 MC Lyte will be releasing her new album on Vinyl format FOR ON DAY ONLY which is sure to be a collector gold. You can get the Vinyl format at independent record stores nationwide: details, locations, and online options are a twww.mclyte.com. Together with the assembly of 10 amazing musicians, this project aims to put the edge, truth and melody back into Hip Hop; hence, the second single release, Dear John, charted on the billboard and met instant rave reviews. 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.
