MC Lyte


MC Lyte burst on to the rap scene in the late '80s, becoming the first female rapper to release a full album, Lyte as a Rock. The Brooklyn native was soon able to add actress to her repertoire, playing herself on television shows In Living Color, Moesha, NY Undercover and My Wife and Kids. MC Lyte's acting career took her to challenging new heights when she played roles as characters other than herself on television shows like In the House, Get Real, Half & Half and The District. It was only fitting that her small-screen talent would get noticed and land her two big-screen roles in the movies Civil Brand, and Playa's Ball.
