Yes.......to Me the OFFICIAL 1st LADY of Hip Hop and that is no disrespect meant to Lauryn Hill! I remember first hearing of Lyte Craming to Understand Sam. In all actuality and in my humble OPINION, most of Lytes better songs came a lot later in her career such as this......https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMwey7ILEms (a Film called Pimp by Common feat MC Lyte). In my humblest opinion, this young lady embodied where a TRUE and INTELLIGENT Blak WOMAN from the HOOD was going with all the potemtial Hip Hop had in the late 80s.

Yall already know that when I post these CAotW that I do not write long articles but as said above, to Me, Lyte was the 1st young Lady of Hip Hop that was truly embraced by the streets of NYC when Hip Hop was still an Uptown thing! Peeps from Brooklyn NY had to come UPTOWN to Harlem and to the Boogie Down Bronx to hear that REAL SHIT back in those days and I got the peepo to verify all that bcuz I was there then! I was there when Lyte was doing her 10% Dis and was telling MCs back then that they was just PAPER THIN! I need not say more but stand aside bcuz as far as I am concerned, the FEMALES of Hip Hop also deserve much RESPECT so give it up to my gal, MC LYTE! Big up to her BROTHERS as well and their names is Milk and Gizmo from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTZaylZTZqc Top Billin fame and they are known as the Audio II! Have fun, enjoy and REMINISCE!
