MC Lyte's LEGEND Album to Be Released as a Limited Edition Vinyl Collector's Item April 18, 2015

LEGEND
MC Lyte's "LEGEND" album, her first in over eleven years, emerges the classic sound of what made her initially popular together with the new, edgy, compelling sounds of the 21st century.  LEGEND WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ONE DAY IN VINYL FORMAT ONLY (with digital downloads for album purchasers) at independent record stores nationwide as a part of Record Store Day.  Details, online pre-order options, listening parties, shows and appearances are at www.mclyte.com.  Future distribution of the album will be available through select media and brand partners at select hi-profile events worldwide. 

Together with the assembly of 10 amazing musicians, this project puts the edge, truth and melody back into Hip Hop. From hard hitting kicks and snares that represent the genre of Hip Hop to the new pad sounds and synths that take the listener beyond this moment and the heavy bass lines that give way for Lyte's showcase of pure lyricism, LEGEND is a perfect combination of what WAS and what IS and it's ALL MC Lyte . . . current but still way ahead of her time.

"The comeback in itself is an art. On LEGEND, however, MC Lyte doesn't appear to have any jet lag," says THE SOURCE MAGAZINE in its review and exclusive premiere:

Check out the conversation below:
Tamar Braxton: Now, Tina, I’m feeling like you saying “sorta kinda, girl,” ’cause you know last season we saw some infidelities in your marriage…
Tina Campbell: Yeah.
Tamar Braxton: [Continued] …you know, that came to light. And this season, ahem [takes her glasses off] … I gotta take my glasses off for this. This is some real true tea. It looked like you done shot up the man’s car! Did you do that, girl?!
Tina Campbell: I did not shoot up the man … First of all, I don’t own a weapon. I ain’t rented no weapon. I ain’t borrowed no weapon. But when you are angry and when you are enraged, you go get a hammer and you get some scissors and you go crazy and so that’s what I did.
