MC Lyte          

Queen of Hip-Hop who Supports Worthy Projects, Events and Fundraisers such as AIDS Awareness, Anti-Violence and Rock-the-Vote.

MC Lyte is a legendary rap artist. MC Lyte is the first rap artist ever to perform at Carnegie Hall and the first female rapper to ever receive a gold single, which sold over 500 thousand copies. MC Lyte’s inspiring 1993 anthem, the classic Ruffneck was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Single, making MC Lyte the first female solo rapper ever nominated for a Grammy. Her newest project Undaground Heat vol.1, Hosted by Jamie Foxx, has garnered this rap legend her 2nd Career Grammy nomination, 10 years later, for Best Solo Female Rap Performance, for her single “Ride Wit Me”, produced by MAAD PHUNK!, on her own label SGI/CMM/BMG.

Lyte was also a familiar face in film and television. Her film career included roles in the recent Playa’s Ball and in a Trimark/Lions Gate feature release Civil Brand. Lyte has also landed roles in feature films including Extreme Pictures’ Train Ride, Cinergi Pictures’ Burn Hollywood Burn, Warner Brothers’ Fly By Night, and the independent features, Luv Tails and Short Handed.

On television, Lyte is known for her character “Lana” on the WB’s long running comedy, For Your Love. Lyte also starred in crime dramas, The District on CBS and in FOX’s New York Undercover and Get Real series. Lyte’s other television credits include UPN’s Platinum, In The House and Moesha, Nickelodeon’s Cousin Skeeter and MTV’s DNC. Lyte is currently the celebrity judge on the 2004 season of CBS’s Star Search with Arsenio Hall, as well as a recurring character role as “KY,” the record label president, on UPN’s new hit show, Half & Half.

With her signature style and recognizable voice it only makes sense that Lyte would be tapped for national voiceover campaigns. Lyte has been the voice behind Wherehouse Music, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Nike national campaigns. Lyte has also represented Mattel in the same capacity by giving her voice to the overwhelmingly popular Mattel Diva Stars “Chat doll”—Tia. Lyte can also be heard hosting her own weekend radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio.
