Rapper, actress, music executive, voice-over artist, public speaker…MC Lyte is busier than she’s ever been! It’s been over 25 years since the New York MC set the hip hop world on fire with songs like “I Cram To Understand” and “Paper Thin”. She has shown through her longevity in this industry that you have to know what you’re doing in order to thrive and still be taken serious. Who knew 25 years ago that her talent would lead to her being the entrepreneur she has become?
“I guess my need to create and inspire others ignites a fire that won’t let me stop,” explains Lyte. “On top of that, I’m enjoying myself so it never really feels like work. I’m doing what I love and making a living out of it all.”
On top of her lifetime acheivement award from BET, MC Lyte became the first African-American female president of the LA Chapter of the Grammy organization, “It was very important for me to represent the diversity that can and does exist within the academy.”
