Rapstress-Turnt-Actress: 9 Amazing Female Rappers to Watch on Screen


The Matron: MC Lyte

Few people know that MC Lyte has acted both on the stage and the screen, giving her a well-rounded foundation for pursuing a larger career. Her movie roles include little-known titles such as “Fly by Night”(1993), “A Luv Tale” (1999), and “Civil Brand” (2002) – but she deserves better. Even though MC Lyte has not had an album out for a while, her name recognition is strong and she still looks as good as she did during her heyday. Lyte would make a great supporting actress in today’s black movie world, competing with the likes of Regina King, with more edge. Let’s hope she gets a break and capitalizes on her previous work.
