Not featured on the solo tip since dropping off Beautiful way, way back in 2007, hip-hop veteran MC Lyte finally returns to the Booth with freshly-minted promo single Dear John. Here, Loudbox's boom-bap percussion, vocal samples and fluid bassline back Lyte as she and her guests, Common and 10Beats, offer some sage advice to black men making their way in contemporary America. In addition to being the lead single off Lyte's next full-length (which is currently unscheduled), Dear John will be featured in the artist's upcoming episode of Being, which will air Saturday, September 13, 9:00 PM EST on Centric. Immediately after the episode, MC Lyte will participate in a livestreamed Q&A for fans and media worldwide. Register at www.mclyte.com to view or participate.
