Brooklyn native MC Lyte performed this past Saturday, July 7th at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. After her performance, Lyte chopped it up with The Boom Box about the younger generation of artists and praised Kanye West for his creativity and open mind about things, and not solely pertaining to music.
“It seems like after he was in that bad accident years ago, he’s lost his filter. He just doesn’t have one … And it’s like he was saying the other day at the BET Awards, ‘I wish Jay was here. I never know what to say politically correct.’ That’s real. Like, when he said, ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ It was just like, ‘Oh my god! Somebody said it!’”
