MC Lyte makes a triumphant return to the game with a moving new track called "Dear John". She enlists the help of fellow OG Common on the classic sounding song. 10Beats evokes memories of Puff on "All About The Benjamins" with his hook, while LoudBox crafts the clap and bass heavy instrumental. Lyrically, MC Lyte still sounds like she's on her A-game, while Common brings the heat per usual.Â
The song will be a part of MC Lyte's upcomingÂ Centric 'Being' special, and she says we can expect a whole new album later this year. Common's new album is available on iTunes now, and you can follow MC Lyte on Twitter here.
Lives left in hallways
Death's breath is in the air
Let your thirst for life persevere
Someone once said you were chosen
But as you've gotten older door's are now closing
