Biography

Lana “MC Lyte” Moorer appears as one of the rapper mentors in the MTV reality television competition series Celebrity Rap Superstar. Her celebrity apprentice on the show is Shar Jackson . She is a female rap artist who was born on October 11, 1970 in Brooklyn, New York. The first single that she released was titled “I Cram to Understand U (Sam),” which focused on the topic of a dishonest lover’s addiction to crack cocaine. Afterwards, she entered into a recording contract with the First Priority label company. Moorer’s debut album was titled Lyte as a Rock, and was released back in 1988.

Lyte as a Rock featured both “I Cram to Understand” and “10% Dis,” which was a challenge against a microphone rival named Antoinette. Her later album was titled Eyes on This, which featured the rap chart-topper “Cha Cha Cha” and the song “Cappucino,” which rhapsodized about coffee. In 2006, the Smithsonian Institution received her diary as a donation for an exhibit on the history of Bronx music. Her contribution was joined by fellow hip-hop pioneers who also gave items such as vinyl records and turntables. Moorer has been nominated multiple times for a Grammy Award, and an MTV Music Award.
