Marriage is the new trend in Hip-Hop, a pretty interesting development given the culture’s reputation for misogyny and sexism. Nevertheless, rappers have been locking down their women left and right as of late – particularly in the last several weeks.

What gives?

Big Sean jumped on the fast track with girlfriend Naya Rivera after six months on the books, followed by Kanye West’s ballpark proposal to Kim Kardashian last week, and finally Future and Ciara.

Of course, tying the rap knot is nothing new. There are cases like French Montana— who went the opposite direction and dumped his better half once he got famous— but the fact is, a good portion of rappers in the game are actually married or tied down.

So what does the new wave of marriage and monogamy mean for the rap game as a whole? Nothing really, personal relationship’s don’t necessarily dictate lyrical content, but in the spirit of  “love and Hip-Hop,” peep 10 (other) rappers who are engaged.
