5-23: Legends of Hip-Hop



c63e/1242764564-mclyte.jpgMC Lyte, one of the original queens of hip-hop, launched her career in 1986, when she was just 15 years old. Almost a quarter century later, she still performs and is part of the Legends of Hip-Hop II show that comes to town tonight. Lyte — who, back in the day, rhymed about lying boyfriends and being in the wrong place at the wrong time when drug deals were going down — headlines the tour, which also includes the Sugarhill Gang, Eric Sermon and Parrish Smith of EPMD and Scarface. It starts at 8 p.m. at the State Theatre (1501 Euclid Ave.), 216.241.6000. Tickets: $42.50-$57.50. — Gill
