Eyes On This (CD)

Sale price$9.98


MC Lyte wasnt just one of the first female rappers, she was one of the first female rappers to point a finger right at the sexism that often populates the Hip Hop realm, often taking the subject head on lyrically (and off stage) she helped open the door for everyone from Queen Latifah to Missy Elliott and yes even Nicki Minaj. Lyte began rhyming at the age of 12, which eventually led to a single, I Cram to Understand U, which led to a recording contract with the First Priority label. MC Lytes debut full-length, Lyte As a Rock followed which along with Eyes On You is consider the most outstanding period of her career which should come as no surprise as the late 80s produced some of the finest releases in the history of Hip Hop.

Eyes On This found Lyte throwing braggart like a Gatling gun. Once again, the bulk of the production was courtesy of her brothers Milk Dee and Gizmo, better know as Audio Two, along with contributions from Nat Robinson and The King Of Chill. The record hit the Billboard Top 200 (in at #86) with singles like Cha Cha Cha, Cappucino and Stop, Look Listen hitting the singles chart and propelling the record into the Top R&B Hip Hop Album chart where it peaked at a comfortable #6.
