MC Lyte Dropping Book Aimed At Teens Entitled "Just My Take"

Legendary rapper MC Lyte

is preparing to release a new book aimed at inspiring readers entitled “Just

My Take.”

“Just My Take”

includes poetry and words of inspiration from Lyte herself, words she hopes

will inspire teenagers and young ladies from the ages of 14-22.

“Every morning I'd

wake with the anticipation of writing down whatever moved me,” Lyte said.

“Throughout my career I have been inspired by young people across America

to speak up and out– and now it's my turn to hopefully inspire and motivate

them at a time when few emcees are willing to give words of advice.”

To support the book, Lyte

will make several promotional appearances in New York where there will be readings

and book signings.
