Legendary lyricist, DJ, voice over talent, actress, entertainer and icon, MC Lyte is still making the crowds move across the globe. MC Lyte first appeared on the scene in 1988 with her debut album Lyte As A Rock. At the age of 17, she began schooling other MCs in the art of rhyme, and since that time she has proven her greatness with a total of ten albums to her credit. Lyte is the first rap artist ever to perform at New York’s historic Carnegie Hall and the first female rapper to ever receive a gold single. Her inspiring 1993 classic anthem, “Ruffneck,” was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Single. In fact, she was the first female solo rapper ever nominated for a Grammy! Lyte serves as a beautiful example that females can rock the mic just as good and often times better than the men (taken verbatim from Hip-Hop Smithsonian).
I’m the dopest female that you’ve heard thus far.
And I’ll blind you with the science that the others have yet to find,
so come along and I’ll lead you the right way.
Just clap your hands to the words I say.
Yet is an adverb that means an expected action or event has not happened. We normally use yet with negative statements and questions.
- He hasn’t woken up yet.
- I haven’t started my homework yet.
- Did you call your brother yet?
Still is an adverb that means something has not finished. Something started in the past and it continues, perhaps to our surprise.
- It has been raining for three hours, and it is still raining.
- He is still upset over the fight.
- Are you still hungry? I can make you another sandwich.
In most cases, yet is used in negative statements and questions. When yet is used in affirmative statements, it has the same meaning as still. This usage is considered to be formal.
Subject + has/have + yet + infinitive.
- I have yet to hear from my brother. I am still waiting for my brother to call me.
- The scientists have yet to find a cure. They are still searching for one.
- He has yet to prove to be an effective leader. He is still gaining the trust of his team.
