Rap pioneer MC Lyte was honored with the prestigious I Am Hip Hop Award at the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards Saturday (Sept. 28) in Atlanta. Rapper Eve was on hand to present the 42-year-old artist her trophy.
Being in the rap game since 1986, it’s safe to say that Mc Lyte has seen the evolution of hip-hop over the years. Fortunately, she still remains a player on the field. With seven albums under her belt and hits like ‘Cha Cha Cha’ and ‘Keep On, Keepin’ On’ with Xscape, Lyte has received numerous accolades including being one of the female emcees honored at VH1's Hip Hop Honors in 2006...
BET has picked up four new reality television shows, one of them called 'Hip Hop Sisters.' The docudrama will follow rappers MC Lyte, the Lady of Rage, Yo-Yo, Smooth, Monie Love and Lil Mama as they attempt to relaunch their careers in hip-hop music.
The manhunt for ex-LAPD police officer Christopher Dorner has become the center of media attention this week. From the manifesto he penned and the murders he committed to the most recent news that his dead body was found in a burned cabin, the story has brought much attention to the Los Angeles Police Department.
