In 2014, the Kardashian-Jenners and rap music go hand-in-hand. Kim is married to superstar rapper Kanye West, Khloe is dating Coke Boy French Montana, momma Kris is good friends with P. Diddy, and Kylie and Kendall have been frolicking around town with Chris Brown, Tyga, and Trey Songz.

Of course, it isn't official in the hip hop world if you aren't featured in a music video. Soooo.. here come the Kardashians in our favorite rappers' music videos:

 

Kim Kardashian in Kanye West's "Bound 2"

Kimmy started the Kardashian hip hop trend. First by dating Ray J back in 2003, and then by starring in Kanye's music video for Bound 2." The horses running, the desert backdrop, Kimmy topless on the motorcycle… so cringeworthy, yet so great. If you haven't watched Seth Rogan and James Franco's "Bound 3," you need to right now.

 

Khloe Kardashian in French Montana's "Don't Panic"

Khloe and French might be our new favorite couple. She seems to genuinely enjoy French's company after a very public, very complicated divorce with Lamar Odom. We just want what's best for Khloe, and French may be that (for now). He recruited her for the music video for "Don't Panic," where they look all badass in clown masks carrying guns.

 

Kylie Jenner in PARTYNEXTDOOR's "Recognize" feat. Drake

Kylie is following in her older sisters' footsteps. Besides hanging out with rappers at house parties, she's also hanging out with rappers in their music videos. Can you spot Kylie's brunette bob during Drake's verse in the video?

 

We're okay with this trend. Keeping up with the Kardashians in rap music videos is as close as we'll ever get to hanging out with these famous artists. Who's next? Kris Jenner in a Chris Brown video? Kendall as the main video vixen in The Weeknd's next venture?
