Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are among those who have been named on this year's coveted TIME 100 list.

The news magazine will publish its annual list of the most influential people in the world later on Thursday, April 16 but the magazine's official website reports that the celebrity couple made the cut.

In his debut album, over a decade ago, Kanye had stated, "We rappers is role models: we rap, we don’t think.” But Kanye does think, constantly about everything and he wants everybody else to do the same.

Over the years, he has engaged, questioned and pushed boundaries and now that he’s  considered a pop-culture powerhouse, he has the platform to achieve all of  that.

He’s not known to be afraid of being judged or ridiculed in the process of making a difference but Kanye’s been playing the long game all along, and we’re only just beginning to see why.

On the other hand, his wife, Kim is a media goddess who has 29 million followers on Instagram and 31 million followers on Twitter. Her E! show,Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is watched by millions across the globe with so many dying to be just like her.

Kim also comes across as an enviable big sister in a clan where everyone seems to love one another and has been able to achieve the fame most will only dream of.
