Hip-Hop veteran and pioneering female rapper MC Lyte has launched a new group, Almost September.
The Hip-Hop/Soul group, which is comprised of MC Lyte, producer/writer/vocalist Whitey and producer/writer/vocalist Jared Lee, will debut six songs from their upcoming album via iTunes today (May 27).
The new group and album release is part of a flurry of activity for MC Lyte, who is also the voice of the BET Awards, which will air June 24 at 8:00 PM on BET.
I love where I am at right now, MC Lyte said. The hustle is on and I am grateful to still be busy, and still have a love for the business. On top of that, to have my fans still showing love and supporting me for years, feels like nothing else in the world! I know without them, I wouldnt be able to survive doing what I love.
The group recently released two singles, Beautiful and Love featuring fellow pioneer KRS-One.
Almost September will make their debut performance on July 5th, at The Bob Hope Concert for the Troops.
Over 70,000 people are expected to attend the concert, which takes place at The Los Angeles Coliseum July 5th - 6th.
Songs from Almost Septembers album are on sale now in the iTunes music store.
