MC LYTE is “Legend”

She’s baaack and it’s an undeniably welcomed return. MC Lyte is flexin’ her lyrical skill and aggressive delivery with Legend, her first album in 11 years.


JET spoke to MC Lyte back in December and the lyricist dropped a few gems on what to expect this time around. One thing in particular was the fueling energy and content that accentuates why we fell in love with the raspy-voiced emcee while also experimenting with sound that resonates with the 21st century.

Well fans, on April 18, Legend will be available for your hearing pleasure in digital format. Adding a specialty to the delivery of her latest project, LEGEND will be available on vinyl for one day only as part of the celebration of Record Store Day.
