Back in 1988, MC Lyte and Positive Okay joined forces for “I’m Not Havin’ It” off The First Priority Music Family: Basement Flavor compilation. Now, the veteran MCs are again with an animated video for a revamped model of the music titled “I’m Still Not Havin’ It.”
Much just like the fashion of Positive Okay’s chart-topping hit “I Got A Man,” Lyte and Okay effortlessly ping-pong their verses over a extra uptempo beat.
“I discover it unbelievable that after 30 years MC Lyte and I haven’t skipped a beat” Positive Okay stated in a press launch. “We have simply as a lot chemistry now as we did then. A duet album could be phenomenal.”
Lyte added, “Working with him is simple and easy. The music from ‘Still Not Having It’ is one in every of my favourite songs from Bill Withers. It takes me again and with the subject material Pos created, makes it MO Betta.”
The first incarnation of “I’m Not Havin’ It” contained samples of The Pointer Sisters’ 1973 single “Yes We Can Can” and peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 following its unique launch.
