Despite the fact that their lyrics may boast of flaunting a rolodex of side chicks while popping bottles in the fast lane, even the greatest of hip-hop heavyweights are not immune to cuffing season. With hot girl summer now firmly behind us, it’s time for today’s top artists to up their relationship profile and boast their boo’d up status all over social media in the form of extravagant gift-giving and heartfelt dedications. Firmly discounting the idea that industry and relationship success are mutually exclusive, emcees are no longer afraid of publicly flexing their commitment and dedication to their better half.
From Travis Scott once proudly proclaiming that he needed Kylie Jenner “to operate” to Offset delivering a televised monologue about the vulnerability that saved his marriage, it’s clear that hip-hop’s hottest stars have no problem flaunting the ups and down of their partnerships.
“It’s just me being vulnerable, I guess, and it kinda bit me with the response of the people,” says Offset of his public reconciliation efforts with wife Cardi B following his cheating scandal. “But that’s why our men don’t be trying to be vulnerable. Because when you do it, it’s like, ah, there’s something wrong with it either way. I love my wife so it’s serious, [it’s] not a game to me.”
