Together with the assembly of 10 amazing musicians, this project aims to put the edge, truth and melody back into Hip Hop; hence, the second single release, Dear John, charted on the billboard and met instant rave reviews. From hard hitting kicks and snares that represent the genre of Hip Hop to the new pad sounds and synths that take the listener beyond this moment and the heavy bass lines that give way for Lyte's showcase of pure lyricism, LEGEND is a perfect combination of what WAS and what IS and it's ALL MC Lyte . . . current but still way ahead of her time.
