Rappers are the new rockstars when it comes to having their pick of models, actresses and pop signers who are itching to hook up with a guy who can sell out an arena tour.
1. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stroll around here in Paris. Word is, they are scouting wedding locations.
2. French Montana and Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian has been spotted out with French Montana. These two are clearly knocking boots.
3. Puff Daddy and Jennifer Lopez
Jenny From the Block has been though her fair share of dudes. Puff was one of the first famous ones.
4. Naya Rivera and Big Sean
Naya Rivera and rapper Big Sean have broken up. The couple got engaged after just six months of dating.
5. Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen
Flavor and Brigitte met while filming a reality show. Truly one of the oddest couples in history.
6. Foxy Brown and Tyson Beckford
It's not just male rappers who can play the field. Foxy and Tyson dated in 2005.
7. 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler
One of our all-time favorites, hands down.
8. Kanye West and Amber Rose
Amber Rose and Kanye West were an item for a time. Now she is reportedly hookin' up with Chris Brown. That would be some scandalous stuff.
10. Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa at the 2012 Grammy Awards. These two are engaged theoretically!
11. Katy Perry and Riff Raff
Katy Perry clearly doesn't have a type ... except to go against any possible type.
12. Jay Z and Rosario Dawson
Can you even remember Jay without Bey? Bet Rosario Dawson does.
13. Tupac and Madonna
Yeah. This happened.
14. Katy Perry and Travis McCoy
Katy and the Gym Class Heroes rapper were an item for quite a while, actually.
Maybe Kim Kardashian is more of a trend-setter than we realize, but it seems like ever since she dropped the athlete in favor of the rap icon, hip-hop hook-ups have been all the rage.
To help you keep track of this growing trend, we've assembled a list of the most memorable rapper/non-rap-celebrity couples, past and present.
Yes, in order to narrow things down, we disqualified couples in which both parties first made their name in the world of hip-hop and R&B. (Sorry, Jay and Bey, Nas and Kelis).
But don't worry, that rule didn't shorten the list by much. It seems when rappers are choosing boo thangs to settle down with they prefer to look outside of the hip-hop community.
