MC Lyte Responds To Tyler, The Creator's "Dykes" Diss And Discusses Her Motivational Memoir

Exclusive: One of Hip Hop's female G.O.A.T.s discusses the Odd Future front-man's "irresponsible" usage of her name and her plans to release two books documenting her historic life and career.

When the legendary MC Lyte is ready to record a new full-length album hopefully she’ll consider the title "Grown & Gracious" for it, because that’s just what the foremother to every female emcee that’s stepped on the scene over the last 25 years came across as during her discussion with HipHopDX yesterday (March 21st).

In an approach foreign to most controversy courting rappers, Hip Hop’s Madame Royale respectfully responded to the recent usage of her name in what she deemed an “irresponsible” manner by Tyler, The Creator. In a refreshingly mature manner, without sonning someone young enough to be her son, Lyte addressed the Odd Future front-man’s line, “Let’s get it poppin’ like MC Lyte around some dykes,” on “Rella” (from the Loiter Squad’s just-released The OF Tape Vol. 2) and explained why “my intelligence was insulted more than my feelings were actually hurt” by Tyler’s joke-making at her expense.

In her quick Q&A with DX, the voice of the BET Awards (and the musical supervisor of a slew of the network’s recent reality programming) additionally revealed who tops her list as the female G.O.A.T., what she thinks of Nicki Minaj’s more Pop-driven sound, and what the title of her forthcoming memoir would have been if Eddie Murphy hadn’t ruined it.  

And for the record, there was no question posed to Lyte about her sexuality, because that’s no one’s business but her own.  

 

HipHopDX: One of the first Rap songs I knew the words to as a kid was “Cha Cha Cha.” I had to substitute “male” for “female” and “him” for “her,” and I never really felt comfortable as a dude saying “the voice gets wetter” – [Laughs]

MC Lyte: Ah, yeah, yeah. [Laughs]  

DX: But other than that, that was my shit back in the day. Do you still get grown men coming up to you giddy to talk about “Cha Cha Cha,” “Stop, Look, Listen,” “Paper Thin”?
 
MC Lyte: All the time. And actually, younger men as well because they were the younger siblings of the generation that was directly affected. Yeah, that’s a beautiful thing.

DX: I just envision some like Suge Knight looking dude rollin’ up to you and starts kickin’ your rhymes. [Laughs]

MC Lyte: You know, it’s not very different from that. [Laughs]

DX: Now, you’re often cited as the greatest female emcee of all time, but I was just curious outside of yourself who do you consider to be the G.O.A.T. female in the game?

MC Lyte: Oh, goodness. Um … I would … you know, it’s a difficult question, because I respect and admire a lot of the female emcees for their unique qualities. Of course I would wanna say Lauryn Hill, but her body of work is not even so much as an emcee. I would of loved to hear more from her as an emcee – even now, I would still appreciate hearing her. She would certainly be at the top of my list.

I like to look for an emcee’s emcee. So I like Heather B, I like Bahamadia, Rah Digga. I love punchlines but I also like the substance within the bar as well. So, yeah, those would be a few I would name certainly.

DX: In most of the circles I’m in it usually comes down to Lyte and Lady Of Rage.

MC Lyte: Oh, is that right? Okay.

DX: Since she’s sadly the only female emcee currently on the charts, I have to ask MC Lyte what you think of Nicki Minaj’s more decidedly Pop direction as the sole representative of female rappers in the mainstream today?

MC Lyte: Well, I mean, it would make sense in terms of what mainstream media is not only promoting but also enveloping. It was coming. The closest we got to it back in the day was Missy [Elliott], in terms of being able to really mesmerize a Pop crowd and provide music in Dance clubs. She certainly was able to capture that.

And then, right on the heels of her was Nelly Furtado and Gwen Stefani working with Pharrell [Williams and Timbaland]. And then there was Fergie, which will.i.am – I remember I did a song called “Mash Out” with will.i.am [for his Must B 21 project in 2003]. He called me up, he said, “I need you to be on this song.” I said, “Without a doubt.” And this was before Fergie was even a part of [The Black Eyed Peas]. They were producing some songs for me when I was on Will Smith’s record label [Overbrook Records], and when I finally heard the song and I heard somebody rappin’ on it I called him like, “Dude, you can’t just put somebody on a record with me. Like, we need to be able to talk about that first.” And he was like, “Oh, you know, no disrespect, she’s just the new addition to our group.” So she was rapping first, before she even started singing, Fergie was.

But it all goes to show that it’s no surprise at all that Nicki [Minaj] would be embraced by the mainstream. I just heard yesterday that she just added another deal to her resume in terms of sponsorship and endorsement. And, you know, it just makes sense.

DX: This next question I just have to forewarn is a much, much heavier one. It’s about another relative new-jack, this one male: Tyler, The Creator from Odd Future. For the first leak from Odd Future’s new album, “Rella,” Tyler rhymes, “Let’s get it poppin’ like MC Lyte around some dykes.”

MC Lyte: Right, I heard about this.

DX: Were you personally offended by the 21-year-old’s alluding to the rumors?

MC Lyte: Yeah, I definitely was insulted. First off, it’s totally new school. [Tyler, The Creator] has yet to understand [that] although he can have quite a bit of followers and fans, it does take a moment from one’s entry in the business for them to really understand what it is that we do for other people. And how we inspire them, and how we influence them, and how we can literally make or break another human being’s day. And with all that I’ve done throughout my years in inspiring generations of people, I think it very irresponsible of him.

With saying that, we do have a generation that is quite irresponsible when it comes to what it is that they’ll say [and] their behavior. [But still], it took me by surprise. One, because I know of people who know him and kind of hold him in high esteem. [But] from that action alone, I don’t know that I feel it worthy for me to address it in any other format, outside of this. But, yeah, I thought it was very careless.   

DX: Well this isn’t in Tyler’s defense but I just wanna note that Odd Future has an openly lesbian member, Syd The Kyd, and Tyler has previously stated that he’s not homophobic. So I think your name kinda just got used as the butt of a joke – that it wasn’t an attack, just tactless.

MC Lyte: Well, the point is just ‘cause words rhyme or sound alike doesn’t mean I need to be your stomping ground. So I do have to take it personally, unfortunately whether he meant it personally or not. I’m sure there was a more tactful way, if in fact skilled, you can deliver a rhyme on your own account and not involve me in the shenanigans.

And I am aware of that member of their group, and kudos to her. But … why didn’t he say her? [Laughs] Like, don’t use me! But, it is what it is. I’ve actually had worse said about me, so … my intelligence was insulted more than my feelings were actually hurt.  

DX: Let’s move off of that stuff and wrap up this quick Q&A by talking about what you’re currently working on. You’re Executive Vice President of the DuBose Music Group, you’re co-host of Café Mocha Radio on XM/Sirius channel #141, you’re deejaying, you’re lecturing, but what about recording a new MC Lyte album? Do you even have time to get back in the booth for a full LP these days?

MC Lyte: You know what? I have a book that’s coming out and there will actually be a six-song CD in the back of the book. So that’s what I’m concentrating on now.

But, yeah, all of those things that you mentioned, [and] I’m actually no longer with DuBose. I did a four-year contract, and I had fun, I music supervised several shows: Monica, Trey Songz, Michael Vick, Tiny & Toya, Toya. It was a fun ride. And, I worked part of the production of Tweet’s [self-titled] record, that’s actually finished and in the can right now. I think they’re about to go through mixing and mastering, so that’ll be out.

But, I’m ready to put all of my eggs into me, and with that comes Hip Hop Sisters, the organization that I started about five or six years ago. So that’s gonna be built out and also have a foundation component to it. I’m out to really inspire some people and possibly change people’s lives.

DX: Is the book gonna be more inspirational or more memoir …?

MC Lyte: Well, there are two different books that I’m working on. One is a memoir, and it is inspirational as well. And then there’s another book that’s pretty much like a photo journey through my … through all of my existence. So it should be quite an event. I’m excited about it.

DX: You got any tentative titles for the books yet?

MC Lyte: I do, but I would rather not say ‘cause it was actually A Thousand Words until Eddie Murphy’s movie came out. [Laughs] So I’m just gonna keep it hush hush until we’re out the gate.

DX: Before I let you go, I heard that “You Don’t Have To Be A Star (Remix)” by Gods’illa and Erykah Badu featuring you, Bahamadia and Monie Love – who was spittin’ like crazy! I don’t think I’ve ever heard Monie spit like that. So is that 3 Queens super-group a possibility you think?

MC Lyte: Oh, wow. I don’t know. I mean, hey, whatever I can do to be of service in terms of putting out some lyrics of quality.

    DX: Well this isnt in Tylers defense but I just wanna note that Odd Future has an openly lesbian member... MC Lyte: And I am aware of that member of their group, and kudos to her. But why didnt he say her? [Laughs] Like, dont use me! But, it is what it is. ----------------------------- Wait, so did she just ADMIT she IS infact lesbian?!

  • wallyworld

    I will defend MC Lyte in this way: When Magic Johnson announced that he had HIV; many artists made Magic their punchline sin one way or another. So MC Lyte is consistent. At the same time, Tyler, no need to disrespect a legend like that. Show some class. MC Lyte deserves better than that.

  • the only comment worth reading

    its not even that serious. Eminem name dropped all the fuckin time and no1 said shit.but ya'll think Tyler should be lynched for a line that wasn't even a diss like that.all these lames are commenting angry as shit talkin down about Tyler and riding MC Lyte's strap-on because she rapped back in the day but they don't own any of her material - calm down you lamez

  • Assassin221

    This writer is obnoxious as hell, it's cool to pay someone respect but like Ice Cube said, stay off the nuts. God damn. Anyway, this shit really isn't a big deal to me, hip-hop has always been confrontational, irreverent type of music and Tyler pushes that to the next level. If he came out with a whole verse about MC Lyte that would be something, but one lame-ass line really isn't worth that much attention. Lyte seems cool though.

  • NY

    Tyler is a fucking joke, Lyte is a legend in hip hop and she deserves more respect than that. It's just some ignorant shit to say, if you write rhymes at least make sure they're right.

    Damn hit the post button by accident didn't get to finish. Now according to a few youngsters they don't like older rappers because they come at younger mcs and hating on young folks getting an opportunity to be successful. Well young ones rap is like any other job if you dont qualify find another profession. Being very skilled on the mic was a demanded requirement. Lil wayne changed that. Now you can rap worst than 50 tyson and blow. And the younger people artists and fans alike are mad because we saying that its unacceptable. Sorry if u can't spit find something else. The one thing that i find funny is you kids say if a emcee has excellent mic skills they suck

    gay ppl that hide it like to spy on straight ppl doctors.teachers .others.and some ones that hide it will even try to mess up a family by trying to make the guy seem bad cause they like the girl yo their worse than guys

  • g00

    i think ppl need to know if your gay or not. cause some gay ppl send out messages of hate that ppl dont kno way more than straight ppl do with gays. a straight person would say ok hes gay but ppl are starting to know that a lot of gay ppl that hide it are up to no good.why are u hideing it.straight ppl dont hide it.so why are u hideing it??i dont care if your gay but if u are ppl need to know. like if your a doctor some mothers want a straight woman cause they dont want no old creepy doctor getting off.and also they dont want no creppy lez getting off eaither.i see these lez all the time really sneaky.like to the point where its really messed up.u have to respect the fact that some ppl dont want the same sex likeing to see them naked.

    First off: Much respect to MC Lyte, but this dude was dickridin the entire article!!! And you can't use they whole "She is a legend" shit either, cause if Kane, Rakim or, Kool G, was being interviewed about a diss, he wouldn't be in "captain save a hoe" mode he would just ask the fucking questions. This interview was kinda lame, he was star struck.

  • Marx

    She's one of the few rappers from her era that I think would actually be able to put out a project that sounds current. Her flow was ahead of it's time & her subject matter was on point. I'm only 27.

  • HereWeGoYo

    On one hand I feel like she's overreacting but at the same time some people just don't play that. "Keep my name out'cha mouth!" Everybody here can agree with that shit. Nobody wants some lil peanuthead nigga coming out the side of they neck for no good reason. And you're going to use my name, try to be a little more fucking creative. The line is so weak I'm surprised she didn't just laugh it off.

    Tyler the creator is wack. Its funny how all the female rappers (Heather B, Bahamdia and Rah Digga) lyte mentioned are 100X doper than him. Its at that point that he should have given up rapping, not goblins poor sales.

  • Strike Force

    I think Its truly amazing how these retarded internet mutherfuckers are all popping out of the woodwork to diss a hip hop legend, talking shit about 15 mins of fame. MC Lyte should be the last person to be associating with 15 mins of fame, Its those Odd Future punks that should be worried about 15 mins. Just goes to show how stupid some people are to fall for horrorcore gimmicks like Tyler the failure. I cant even diss white people for supporting that shit, more than often I've met/known white people that feel the real shit as much I do.

    I don't understand this hatred for older rappers. Do you people know that the same older people you despise are your parents? Do your grandparents agree with what you say and do on this website? Looking at the time school's in in many areas. Aren't there older people teaching you and helping you to take the next step? Isn't there an older security guard helping to keep the bullies from beating your behind up? An older person driving that school bus? Tyler is nothing but another young person on this Earth. While you defend him, when it's time to defend you for your mishaps I GUARANTEE he won't be there to help you. AND, Tyler was given a chance and a contract and shows booked by an OLDER PERSON.

      Thank you for the retort Mr. Wow. I could sit here and prove that even regardless of this gentleman's situation, he has been helped by an older person, deals with older people, has a problem with a specific older person that he takes out on all others, but it is not feasible for me. You are right, they hate wisdom, and will be the primary ones mad at others when they have to pay for the repercussions of their juvenile mistakes and delusions of immortality. You will be that older person too one day young man, be careful of what you wish for. Your own child may be the one to treat you in the same manner you speak now and you will be liable by law due to your "effective" parenting.

      He is saying the things your rap idol Tyler is saying does not apply to the nature of real life. MC Lyte is quoted above absolutely deflecting the issue, and yet the Odd Future, young rap fans are up in arms to defend their rap idol. It must be because the schools stopped serving the "pink slime" to the kids that is mere chemicals and coloring, similar to when you wane a drug addict off of their drugs, they become highly emotional off of anything presented to them.

Fuck lytes closet ass, if she is she aint reppin her shit right whatever. As far as the music concerned lyte so much bigger in rap history than the tyler dude she should of never acknowledged him like she won't her sexuality. peace

    MC Lyte, it's Hip-Hop, quit being a fucking bitch and deal with it.

  • F__K Rap

    Who the fuck is this nigga and who the fuck gives a fuck about his bitch ass or his bitch ass group?

    • wow mr

      thats because they never released an album in the mainstream together till a few days ago.and we have this wonderful thing called the internet where you can download albums for free even b4 they come out.therefore puttin a dent in the artists record sales. nigga stop puttin Lyte on that tip like you actually bump her like that.MC Lyte wouldnt be the benz do to the fact she fell the fuck off YEARS AGO. the fuck you preachin to?

    • Mr.Wow

      We have to also note that the group hasn't sold a million albums yet either so his millions of fans mean nothing. If he truly had millions of fans it would reflect in album sales no different from the OG's that have done it several times. Comparing Tyler to Lyte is like comparing a scion(Tyler) with a benz(Lyte). Scions have millions of fans but they all would rather have the money to buy a benz. Why? I think you get the picture. Young people should respect their elders because they have experience (good or bad) and they are smarter than you think. The knowledge they drop can only help you, I'm sure you can learn something and apply it to your life. Wisdom can only be pasted down and not the other way around. Most people don't realize how valuable knowledge is until they have matured. Just because you getting money don't mean you mature. There is a big difference between the two.

    tylers schtick is getting old already. plus, he's a brother catering to a bunch of white folks cause he thinks he is white, so he bodied himself already.

      ^^ignorant.white artists are in every "black" genre you named as well as black artists in ur "white" genre.as well as listeners.STEREO TYPING BLACK AND WHITE FOLKS ON MUSIC IS DUMB.no research needed

    • Wowzer

      OG Rock&Roll=Black OG Jazz=Black OG Gospel=Black OG Blues=Black OG Country=Black OG R&B=Black OG Funk=Black OG HipHop=Black OG Reggae=Black OG DooWop=Black OG Detroit Techno=Black ETC... Classical=White (suspect) Top 40 rock, pop, some country= white Anything with a Top 40 in front was meant for white folks. Don't believe me go do some research and get back to me. And go back in time my friend how about start in the 50's and work your way up.

    • wise1

      not 1 time has Tyler said he wants to be white or stated that his music is for white people.Tyler *if u actually stop being a hypocrite n listen to him* talks about muhfuckaz just like you that call him white or his music white.wtf people?why are we trying to put a color on music now? define white music.define black music.

  • TheOliverBrand

    No one in their RIGHT MINDS would take Odd Future seriously.

  • #1bitch

    why wasn't it a controversy when doctor dre called all his homeboys who abandoned him "faggots" in a video showing him working out and professing his love to eminem

  • Braydon

    Who gives a fuck the nigga has said worse

  • djbvax

    I see a lot of "old azz" post. Why do "young" people think they will be that way forever. People can't put into words a decent statement so the first thing they do is name call or point out the obvious. Oh you're old or fat or too black. So ignorant.

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    Forgot to add that it's good to hear from one of the best period. Good interview with MC Lyte. She did the grown woman thing and didn't stoop to his level.

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    You have R&B singers, who can barely sing, dissin' R&B Kings/Legends, and you have wack 'rappers' dissin Hip Hop/Rap Legends..smfh.. Most kids from this generation are a bunch of fucking idiots who have no respect for anyone. They need to learn to sit their asses down and keep the names of legends out of their mouths.

  • K.S

    Sorry Tyler the Creator but how many years have you been in the Game and how many Classics have you dropped? 0 that's what I thought. As for MC Lyte "Lyte As A Rock", "Eyes On This", "Act Like You Know" or "Ain't No Other" are Classic or not far from Classics. Before you open your mouth you might wanna show some RESPECT for those who've paved the way for your weird ass to get on. Tired of these punk ass Kids who show no gratitude towards those who came before them. I hope the next time you talk sh*t about another Legend you get clocked in your Face. Tyler mention something about Lady of Rage I can promise you she'll probably stomp the sh*t outta your young ass. Peace and respect to all the Real Hip Hop Headz World wide who grew up with the best Era's in Hip Hop which are the 80's and 90's.

      "second, he doesn't slap him "right after he says that line in the video", after the whole verse was done yeah.OFWGKTA has originality and you say they are lazy with the music???WHAT?!?" Huh. Oh well. I really only pay attention to the first twenty seconds (Gotta love that big woman), and laugh at "Where my dick go!?" And no, they aren't all that original when it comes to music. They rap about random shit, or violence, or whatever the fuck they feel like saying. Just because it's stream of concious doesn't mean it's treading new ground. Tyler's VIDEOS, on the other hand, are actually rather impressive, as well as the fact that he utterly refuses to kowtow to decency and respect unless he feels like it is, in it's own way, impressive. To put it like this, if I made a song and Tyler offered to direct the video, I'd strongly consider it and read his script intensely. If I were making a song and he offered to feature on it, I'd laugh and say no.

    • fuck what they talkin

      first of all...what the fuck is HHAHAHAH!'s comment about??random as fuck.made no sense. randomly brought up Gravediggaz and said someone*cuz i know it wasn't me* was born in 2000?wtf?ANYWAYS! second, he doesn't slap him "right after he says that line in the video", after the whole verse was done yeah.OFWGKTA has originality and you say they are lazy with the music???WHAT?!? John Smash:thats cuz its an INSTANT CLASSIC, BITCH!! "BTW, it's not Prolly; it's Probably"NO SHIT!!when you get an LOL text do you correct the person and tell them that its Laugh Out Loud NOT LOL or when someone says Nigga you PROLLY be the guy to go NO its NIGGER not NIGGA...fucking idiot.your only comeback is fixin my grammar.fuckin corny.its been 3 years since bastard and people still bump it.

    • John Smash

      Those are not classics..yet..Classic means, never went out of style..time tested...TIME TESTED..MORE THAN 3 YEARS AGO. Lyte's last album dropped 9 years ago. You can't release a CD last year and call it a classic. BTW, it's not Prolly; it's Probably... Learn how to spell you idiot.

    • Anonymous

      It's kinda hilarious, because right after he says that line in the video, Domo slaps the shit out of him. But yeah. It's lazy, Tyler's lazy on the lyrics all the time. Odd Future in general is kinda lazy when it comes to music.

    • HHAHAHAH!

      Because you were born in 2000, you never heard of a group called "Gravediggaz" produced by "RZA". So take creative and give it to artists who deserve it not GIMMICKS!

    • no fuck what he said

      dude.Bastard & Goblin are classics the whole concept behind them is raw but you wouldn't know because you prolly only herd Yonkers and thought it was too scary so you hated on it.MC Lyte classic albums??thats funny cuz when people name old hip-hop classics none of her albums are brought up.Illmatic,Reasonable Doubt,2pacalypse Now etc.im sure if MC Lyte never got in the game Tyler would still be here.
