When it comes to female rappers, it’s not unusual to hear whispers and rumors of lesbianism. Missy Elliott, Da Brat and Queen Latifah are just a few of the famous femcees to have whispers of clit licking between the sheets run rampant during their careers.

MC Lyte, who built the bulk of her career in the ’80s and ’90s, was also one of those female rappers who people often assumed was a closet lesbian.
