    I caught A Free Concert the other night with MC Hammer, MC Lyte, & Dougie Fresh w/ Slick Rick. And I gotta Say, MC Lyte tore it Down! Hammer was alright. Slick Rick did like 2 songs and was out of breath. Dougie Fresh wasted time playing ol’ school records. But Lyte, She did classic favorites, New Freestyles, and she looked GREAT! I was thoroughly impressed.
    Having said that: I purchased my tickets last night. October 5th is on my calendar.
