Amoeba Review

BillyJam 05/26/2014

Incredible debut album from MC Lyte with which she instantly disproved the common misconception at the time that women couldn't really rap or at least were not nearly as good as their male counterparts. The fact that there were so few other female rappers putting out albums in the '80s with a distinctly uneven ratio of female to male rappers only helped enforce the negative stereotypes of women in rap. But Brooklyn's MC Lyte, who was not simply a great "female rapper" but a "great rapper" by any standards, ably proved that she could more than hold her own and give other sucka emcees (male and female alike) a run for their money. Standout tracks of the ten song LP include the title track, "10% Dis," "I Cram to Understand U," and "Paper Thin" on which she flexes her mic skills in her instantly recognizable raw flow - all complimented with the production of Audio Two, Alliance, Prince Paul, and King of Chill.
