MC Lyte has continued to flourish, since she first sprouted to the surface of the Hip Hop scene in the late 80's, adding her branch to the tree of Hip Hop. MC Lyte is known as being one of the first female Hip Hop artist, who set herself apart from the male's in the Hip-Hop game,with her rhythmatic flows that took the Hip Hop scene by storm.
She was the first female solo rap artist to be nominated to receive a Grammy. She's also the first African American female president of the LA chapter of The Recording Academy and is founder of the Hip Hop Sister Foundation. Sprite will be honoring MC Lyte with the I'am Hip Hop award at 8p.m. E/T October 15, where MC Lyte will be honored, and added to the list of other's who's received the life time achievement recognition award over the year's.
