The legendary rapper MC Lyte recently announced that she is engaged to her boyfriend John, whom she met online.
We can remember that earlier at the beginning of the year, Lyte revealed on Instagram that she had found love by sharing a romantic photo of the pair together.
The American rapper first gained fame in the late 1980s, after becoming the first solo female rapper to release a full album, critically acclaimed “Lyte as a Rock.” She has for a long time been considered as one of the hip-hop’s pioneer feminists.
The star shared a post which read, “What can I say, except to thank the Lord? It’s been a long time being in this single life.”
She added, “I thank you all for your prayers and kind words of hope. God has blessed me with true love. For all of you are waiting for love, don’t give up. Keep God first, and he will see that you meet your match #Godisall,” she concluded.
As one of the pioneers of hip-hop, MC Lyte has inspired women for years to gain independence that led her to meet John online.
The rapper has kept her relationship notoriously private for many years. As a result, millions of her fans have come up with speculated reasons why she was never married or have children.
In her book, “Your Man and Your Money,” elaborates what it entails to give yourself time to get what you want. It is not a surprise why she decided to remain patient for such a prolonged period.
Apart from rapping, MC Lyte has engaged in philanthropic roles with Hip-Hop Sisters Foundation which gives $100,000 to students going to college since inception.
Additionally, MC Lyte has a recognizable voice in acting, and a renowned DJ. She served as the DJ of choice at Michael Jordan’s 50th Birthday Celebration, and at his 2013 wedding reception.
Additionally, she is a speaker at colleges and universities, and for organizations around the world. Most of her motivational talks aim to bring a message of empowerment from her book Unstoppable.
She had partnered with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund on the iLEAD international tour in South Africa to empower the continent’s youth in leadership.
In 2013, the star received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball. She became the first female solo hip hop artist to receive BET’s “I Am Hip-Hop” Icon.
It’s an excellent step taken opening up about her personal life as being engaged since her legacy will continue to thrive.
