Kanye was dating his high school girlfriend Sumeke Rainey before breaking into the music industry. ‘Nothing sad as that day my girl’s father went away / So I vowed to Mr. Rainey I’m going to marry your daughter,’ Ye rapped on the song Never Let Me Down from his debut album The College Dropout in 2004.
