MC Lyte

A slew of '90s rap and R&B stars appear in a particular 1997 episode where Moesha and friends go to a festival that features everyone from A Tribe Called Quest to 112.

We loved seeing trailblazer MC Lyte here too, as Brandy would later work with her on the "I Wanna Be Down" remix that brought together fellow badasses like YoYo and Queen Latifah. Look out for Lyte at the 5:49 mark.
