"MC Lyte wasn't 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 Lyte's debut full-length, Lyte As a Rock followed, which along with Eyes On You is considered the most outstanding period of her career. And that 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 braggadocio 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."
