Hip-hop pioneer MC Lyte and Grammy Award winner Bizzy Bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony are among Oprah Winfrey’s guests on an all-new episode of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airing at 10 p.m. Saturday on OWN.
Known as the “First Lady of Hip-Hop,” MC Lyte, born Lana M. Moorer in the Queens section of New York, became the first solo female rapper to release a full album with 1988’s critically acclaimed “Lyte as a Rock.” She discusses her new stage show, “Love Jones,” in which she plays host at a popular night spot dubbed The Sanctuary. The “Love Jones” national tour made a stop at Philadelphia’s Merriam Theater back in September.
Winfrey also catches up with hip-hop icon Bizzy Bone (born Byron McCane) in the studio. As a member of Bone Thugs N Harmony, he won the 1997 Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for “Tha Crossroads.”
In this musically themed episode, viewers also receive an update on Grammy Award-winning musician and acclaimed film, TV and stage actor Meatloaf as he promotes his latest album “Braver Than We Are.” Meatloaf shares the story behind his song “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” explains how he got his unique stage name, and interacts with his fans at an Austin, Texas, autograph signing.
Finally, Winfrey checks in with Dennis Haskins, best known for his role as Principal Belding on the hit sitcom “Saved by the Bell,” which aired from 1989 to 1992.
