Lana Michelle Moorer is known by her stage name MC Lyte. She has broken many boundaries as a female rapper. Her debut album in 1988 was titled "Lyte as a Rock." According to The Source, it was the first solo album ever released by a female.

In 1993, her single, "Ruffneck," made her the first female solo rapper to be nominated for a Grammy Award. Despite the success of her career, MC Lyte didn't have as much luck with love until later in her life.

John did not know he was dating celebrity until a friend suggested that he Google her.
