In The Lab Hip Hop Sessions: Women In Hip Hop

The GRAMMY Museum, Beats by Dre and The Poetess presents In The Lab Hip Hop Sessions: Women In Hip Hop. The program will highlight the contributions and milestones women have made in hip hop culture. Special guests MC Lyte and DJ Ji Ji Sweet will share their stories with Los Angeles area youth. MC Lyte, lyricist, actress, author, entrepreneur, and TV and radio host could all be used to describe MC Lyte. One of the most prolific and well-respected female Hip Hop artists to ever bless the mic, MC Lyte has consistently found ways to reinvent herself musically, while expanding her resume and gaining new fans. MC Lyte first appeared on the scene in 1988 with her debut album Lyte As A Rock. In 2006, MC Lyte became the first solo female rapper to be inducted and honored on VH-1's HIPHOP HONORS!
