Kanye West and Kim Kardashian might be the most talked about couple in Hollywood right now, but how long has this romance been brewing? Kanye has appeared on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and Kim has traveled all over the world to catch her beau's concerts, but it seems like Kanye might've been on the chase for awhile. Word is that his verse on 2009's "Knock You Down" was about the reality TV star.

Most recently, Kanye made an appearance during Jay-Z’s set at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend and who was there to document the night with pictures and twitter updates? None other than girlfriend of the year, Kim Kardashian.

The two have been friends for many years, but it didn't reach a romantic level until recently. According to HipHopWired, sources say that Kanye’s verse on Keri Hilson’s 2009 hit “Knock You Down” had something to do with Kim. The rapper may have subliminally hinted in his lyrics that he had a crush on Kim while she was dating NFL football player, Reggie Bush.

Kanye’s main reference in the song being – “You was always the cheerleader of my dreams/You seem to only date the head of football teams/And I was the class clown that always kept you laughing/We were never meant to be baby we just happened.” Later in the song Kanye also says, “You should leave your boyfriend now.”

Kanye spit these lyrics in 2009, and finally got his bootylicious girlfriend 3 years later. Who knows how long these two have been putting off their seemingly inevitable relationship. Amber Rose has been very open about the fact that Kim and Kanye hooked up while they were still dating.

Has Kim Kardashian finally found her prince charming? Will Kanye stick around for more than 72 days?
