MC Lyte contradicts herself here. “The Big Bad Sister from around the way,” she describes herself as before declaring, “I’m not tall but I’m small; don’t matter what I weigh.” That last comment sounds more clever than she probably meant it when you consider how self-conscious women generally are about their weight.
It’s a good song though. That’s partly due to the rapper’s “funky lyrics”; it’s basically just a short verse and a long verse with no chorus; but mostly because of the funky New York City beat, produced by The 45 King and led by what sounds like a rendition or altered sample of the bassline from The Whatnauts’ Help Is On The Way.
