The 46-year-old MC Lyte (born Lana Michele Moorer) began her rap career in the late 1980’s and is considered one of the first ladies of hip hop, best known for her hits “Lyte As A Rock” and “Cha, Cha, Cha,” “Roughneck” and “Cold Rock A Party.” She’s also an entrepreneur, voiceover actor, public speaker and philanthropist, and she was also the first African-American woman to serve as the president of the Los Angeles chapter of the Recording Academy.

Over the years, MC Lyte has been very private about her personal life, but recently, the veteran hip-hop star has shown her emotional side and expressed a heartfelt message about her own relationship to her fans who may have given up on finding true love.

“What can I say, except thank you Lord!” the rapper shares on social media. “It’s been a long time, this single [life, and I thank you all for your prayers and kind words of hope. God has sent me true love.”

In years past, rumors have linked Lyte to being a lesbian in relationships with Tichina Arnold from Martin, Queen Latifah, rapper Lil’ Mama or even singer/actress Janelle Monae. But she put those rumors to rest with her latest instagram post.

Concluding her message, she uses her own journey as a way to inspire others, adding, “For all of you waiting on LOVE – don’t give up. Keep God first and he will see that you meet your match.”

In her picture post, the veteran rapper decided to introduce her new boyfriend to the world, expressing her gratitude that after years of being single, she’s now found her beau. See below:


Fresh off the Women’s march with 750,000 other women the day after Trump’s inauguration, Lyte says to always “expect miracles.”
