Hip-Hop Royalty Weddings: Alicia Keys and T.I. Both Make It Official

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky weren't the only high-profile weddings this weekend.


Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky weren't the only high-profile couple to walk down the aisle this weekend. Rapper T.I. -- aka Clifford Harris -- married his longtime girlfriend, aka his "ride-or-die chick," Tiny Cottle, of Xscape fame. The two wed in Miami (Star Island), and guests included Usher Raymond, Jermaine Dupri, Bow Wow, Nelly, Ashanti, TLC's Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, Trina and Jamie Foxx. Foxx sang the bridal processional, and former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young officiated. R&B chanteuse Alicia Keys wed hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz in a private ceremony over the weekend. New Age guru Deepak Chopra officiated at the wedding. For some reason, we feel like listening to Common and Erykah Badu's "Love of my Life (Ode to Hip-Hop)."
