Lyte As A Rock

LP (Item 1386) First Priority/Atlantic, 1988 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 4

Lyte's first LP, and a hip hop classic that needs no introduction from us. Lyte raised the bar for female rappers on this late 80s album with her mic skills and lyrical finesse that took female MC's into a whole new realm, beyond "Roxanne" answer tracks. She takes on Roxanne Shante on "10% Dis", a classic battle track that sparked a great answer cycle in its own right. And the production, mostly by Audio Two is pure minimalist hip hop beatmaking, while the King Of Chill comes correct with the dopest side stick in the history of programmed beats on "Paper Thin", and Prince Paul goes nuts with the horn stabs on one of his earlier beats, "MC Lyte Likes Swingin'". 10 tracks in all, this LP also includes "I Cram To Understand You", "Kickin 4 Brooklyn", "Lyte As A Rock", "Lyte Thee MC", "I Am Woman", "Lyte Vs. Vanna Whyte" and "I Am Woman".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
