13 Young Rappers in Love
Love is definitely in the air. Hip-hop artists old and new haven't shied away from the spotlight with their significant others, but the younger generation has taken it to a whole new level.
New parents Cardi B and Offset—who collectively may be having the best 2018 ever—have become hip-hop's favorite couple in less than a year's time. The wedded pair have spent the past 12 months jumping on each other's singles, including popular tracks like "Motorsport" and "Drip," and have shown spectators that money is no object when it comes to showing off their love. For Offset's 26th birthday last December, the Bronx rhymer gifted the Atlanta native with a Rolls-Royce Wraith, almost topping her $500,000 engagement ring. Their latest joint purchases include his and her Lamborghinis.
Over on the West coast, Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner are finally giving fans an inside look into their relationship. The two just welcomed their first child in February—a baby girl named Stormi—and have since revealed some rather intimate details about one another. In July, La Flame and Kylie posed for their first joint magazine cover and shared how their second date sealed the deal. “Coachella was one of the stops on his tour," she shared with GQ. "So he said, ‘I'm going back on tour—what do we want to do about this?’ Because we obviously liked each other. And I was like, ‘I guess I'm going with you.' I really jumped on the bus. And then we rode off into the sunset. I did the whole tour with him."
Surprisingly enough, G Herbo has shown fans his softer side as well. This year Swervo had his first son, Yosohn, with girlfriend Ariana Fletcher, and their Instagram posts would make even the biggest gangster crack a smile.
With all the cutesy IG captions and jaw-dropping gifts the aforementioned rappers have shared with fans, XXL has compiled a list of all the young hip-hop couples showing PDA on social media. Take a look at them all below.
