Mc Lyte Fights For Female Rap Grammy
Rap veteran MC LYTE is spearheading a new campaign to help her peers pick up more Grammy Awards.
The Cha Cha Cha hitmaker, who became the first female rapper to score a gold single, is using her position on the Grammy committee to reinstall a category for the ladies of hip-hop at the annual music Oscars.
She says, "We have not had a female rap category at the Grammys since 2003, and I'm trying to get this thing reinstated for 2009, the CM reported.
"I'm getting all of these sisters ready, whether they're signed or unsigned."
