Rapper Kayne West has reportedly asked his 29-year old girlfriend, Alexis, to be his wife while the couple were on a recent two week vacation. The marriage will be the first for the couple who have been dating since 2002.
Kanye's career almost ended prematurely after he was involved in a near fatal car crash four years ago. However, the hip-hop star turned the experience into a hit song, 'Through The Wire', which featured on his debut album 'The Dropout'.
At the time, Kanye said: "If you have the opportunity to play this game called life, you have to appreciate every moment."
"The Gole Digger's" second album, 'Late Registration', also produced a series of hits that won him Grammy awards including best rap album, best rap song and best rap solo performance.
Kanye has also produced tracks for some of the urban music industries biggest names including 'What's Your Fantasy' star Ludacris and 'Fallin'' singer Alicia Keys.
