Hip-hop is a tough game in which only the best survive. From the early days of the male-dominated genre, female rappers have proved that women, though few in numbers, are fearless, strong especially when unified and are not only capable of standing as tall as the next man but also of outshining them.
Many female rhymers, from Queen Latifah to Nicki Minaj, have destroyed the proverbial glass ceiling to become legends in their own right.

Hip-hop pioneer Lana “MC Lyte” Moorer is officially married one year after people prayed for her desire to be a wife.
MC Lyte, 46, married a Marine Corp veteran and entrepreneur named John Wyche in Jamaica over the weekend at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort in Montego Bay, according to Essence. Just one year before her star-studded wedding took place where the guest list included rapper YoYo, rapper and actress Niatia ” Lil Mama” Kirkland, singer Kelly Price and singer Coko of R&B group SWV, a group of women gathered to pray for Lyte’s future husband.
Lyte, the co-founder of the hip-hop Sisters Foundation, hosts a women’s retreat called the W.E.A.L.T.H. Experience with celebrity guests and panelists each year. There, women come together to work on their goals in their personal and professional lives.
