MC Lyte is the first female solo rap artist to ever be nominated for a Grammy or perform hip-hop at The White House. She is also a motivational speaker, philanthropist and author. She talks about The W.E.A.L.T.H. Experience, a women’s retreat in Miami, Florida, that she and her organization, the Hip-Hop Sisters Foundation, helped bring to a large audience. She explains how W.E.A.L.T.H, which stands for Womanhood, Expansion, Assets, Leadership, Transformation and Health, started from something small and became what it is today.

MC Lyte talks about its goal of gathering women together at the top of the year to empower them so that they move successfully throughout the rest of the year. Plus, she talks about her transition from being a well-known voice in hip-hop, to being a well-known voice in radio. Click on the audio player to more in this exclusive interview from “Get Up!
