One of hip-hop's original queens is soon tying the knot.

In a recent interview with Essence, MC Lyte revealed that she's officially engaged, and that she met her husband-to-be on the internet. “I met my fiancé online,” Lyte revealed.

She also added that being with someone who allowed her to let her guard down was a big factor in a successful romance. "My biggest thing with dating was the ability to be vulnerable," Lyte explained. "With [John] I can totally just let go and be myself."

The rapper details more of her engagement and significant other, who's a native New Yorker, in her new book, Your Man and Your Money: How to Get'em and How to Keep'em.

Lyte first opened up about her relationship status back in January, with a heartwarming Instagram post. In the caption, she noted that she'd been a single woman for a long time before she jumped into her then-new romance.

"What can I say, except thank you Lord!! ... It's been a long time, this single life, and I thank you all for your prayers and kind words of hope," she wrote. "God has sent me true love. For all of you waiting on LOVE- don't give up - keep God first and he will see that you meet your match."

There's no word on the wedding date, but we're sure it will be a lit one—and maybe Lyte can even hold down the microphone at the wedding reception.
