HipHopDX caught up with the Hall-Of-Fame emcee MC Lyte to discuss a few things, namely, Tyler, The Creator’s recent disrespectful mention of her in an OddFuture freestyle. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
When the legendary MC Lyte is ready to record a new full-length album hopefully she’ll consider the title “Grown & Gracious” for it, because that’s just what the foremother to every female emcee that’s stepped on the scene over the last 25 years came across as during her discussion with HipHopDX yesterday (March 21st).
In an approach foreign to most controversy courting rappers, Hip Hop’s Madame Royale respectfully responded to the recent usage of her name in what she deemed an “irresponsible” manner by Tyler, The Creator. In a refreshingly mature manner, without sonning someone young enough to be her son, Lyte addressed the Odd Future front-man’s line, “Let’s get it poppin’ like MC Lyte around some dykes,” on “Rella” (from the Loiter Squad’s just-released The OF Tape Vol. 2) and explained why “my intelligence was insulted more than my feelings were actually hurt” by Tyler’s joke-making at her expense.
