MC Lyte Returns With Common’s Help on ‘Dear John’
MC Lyte hasn't revealed why she's dropping her first album in 11 years soon, but it's certainly welcomed. Her new song featuring Common -- 'Dear John' -- showcases why. The bass-riding bit of inspiration is produced by Loudbox.
Common giving a solid verse is pretty much a given at this point. What's more important is how MC Lyte doesn't allow her OG status to put her on a pedestal. She sounds relatable through her introspective lyrics. "Lives left in hallways, death's breath is in the air / Let your thirst for life persevere," she rhymes.
'Dear John' helps promote #EducateOURMen initiative, a scholarship founded by MC Lyte's Hip Hop Sisters Foundation. Check it out here for more information.
