MC Lyte Is Lytro Da Underground Heat Vol. 1
- Words: Lynne D Johnson
- Label: SGI
With 15 years in the hip-hop game, six career albums and a greatest hits comp, MC Lyte was the first female rapper to turn out a gold single with the cult classic "Roughneck." With that said, if there were a university for female emcees, Lyte would be the dean. And though her machine-gun delivery is as present as ever on her seventh and latest release, that it was made in four days is quite apparent. Maad Phunk!'s production rests on overly tired loop production, which does nothing to pump up Lyte's lack of hook structure and trite lyrics focusing on her longstanding career. That today's female rappers would be nothing without her is true, but perhaps it's time to pass the torch.
