Aggressive lab/pit mix

I recently came into a 4 month old female lab and pit mix. She's super sweet and very smart, but very big and hyper. She's always jumping and running around, which is fine, but when she starts to play fight she gets carried away and starts getting aggressive. earlier tonight I was playing with her when she started to bite a little harder than usual, then all the sudden she got very vocal and started lunging. She lunged and grabbed onto my thigh, and now I have a nice little gash in my leg. after I got her off of me, she kept trying to jump and bite me, and when I said no and tried to get her to calm down, she got even more hyped up and kept biting harder.
I've raised labs with this energy before, but I've never raised a pit, and man does she have pitbull teeth.
If I could have any advice, I would love it'
She's fantastic with children most of the time, other dogs and cats, and she's not aggressive or possessive over her food.
I'm not sure if that makes a difference, but I hope someone can help!

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
