Today in Hip-Hop: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Get Married
On this day, May 24, in hip-hop history...
2014: After becoming engaged in October of 2013, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (also known as Kimye) got married in a lavish private ceremony surrounded by family at the 16th century Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy on May 24, 2014. Today marks their two year anniversary.
In a world of over-sharing, they're at the top of the celebrity totem pole. With 'Ye being the most outspoken rapper in history and Kim securing crowned the queen of reality TV, it's a wonder their ceremony was so private.

Unlike in her previous marriages, Kim chose to take Kanye's last name, becoming Kim Kardashian West.
Since marrying, Kanye and Kim have each had some pretty big personal and professional milestones. Kanye has dropped three seasons of his Yeezy clothing line with Adidas and released his eighth studio album, The Life of Pablo. In addition to playing the role of supportive wifey, Kim has launched her own video game and emoji packs, become the face of brands like T-Mobile, OPI and Quick Trim.
In the years since her marriage to Yeezy, Kim K has had three kids, making the West-Kardashian household a full one.
