I’ve been a MC Lyte fan for a long while. Since “Ruffneck”. And then again with “Cold Rock A Party”. She’s not made too many measurable splashes in music, the place the gave her her start, in quite awhile however. She’s tried. But she’s more well known these days as the voice of the announcer at the BET Awards and some occasional guest spots on TV shows and whatnot.
However, driving around LA today, I heard this song and wondered who it was. I tried to SoundHound it but to no avail. Luckily, they announced it was MC Lyte. I was like, what?!
I like this beat. I like the vibe of the song. It feels a little late to the game, because it really feels like a summertime song (obviously, peep the vide0). But Lyte seems happy, the track is funky, dude singing is decent, and I’m like, I can actually listen to this more than once.
It’s like old school meets new school without the air of desperation most older acts seem to have these days (see LL Cool J’s last “album”).
What do you think? It’s definitely not the worst thing I’ve heard all summer. I will leave that crown for Pitbull anything…
